The first warm-up match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2023 will see New Zealand taking on West Indies at Western Province Cricket Club, Cape Town on Monday, February 6. New Zealand will be trying to give a tough challenge for the title in the marquee event. And, before the tournament, they will be looking to test their strength as well as depth and also give some game time to some of the key players so that they can work on the loopholes prior to the mega event.
On the other hand, the West Indies team will have a lot to work on their squad after their rather-forgettable exit in the Tri-series involving India and South Africa as the other participants as well. They will try to work on their loopholes and prepare themselves to play better in the main event as well.
