New Zealand will face the West Indies in the 2 T20 International Series for Game 1 in Windsor Park in Dominica and the start time is 14:00 (18:00 GMT) on Saturday, July 5. Sky Sports will have a live stream.
NZ’s Kane Williamson talked to ESPN Cricinfo about the match.
“It can be a challenge when you spend so much time away from home and you get close to leaving, but the guys are all focused on these two T20s and they want to enjoy them and it would be great to come away with some wins,” Williamson said. “We are always backing ourselves. We know the West Indies are one of the best teams in the world, if not the best team in the world, at this format so we know it will be a good challenge.”

AP update: New Zealander gets life ban for fixing cricket
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A former cricket player for New Zealand has been banned for life after admitting to years of involvement in match-fixing with the words “I am a cheat.”
The England and Wales Cricket Board announced the ban Tuesday hours after Lou Vincent divulged his “dark secret” in a video statement. He says he had been involved in fixing matches in 12 competitions across five countries, including in English county cricket, the Indian Cricket League and the 2012 Champions Trophy.
The 35-year-old New Zealander played 23 tests and more than 100 one-day internationals. He says his actions had “rightly caused uproar and controversy.”
He says in the video statement: “I have shamed my country. I have shamed my sport. I have shamed those close to me. For that I am not proud.”
