The
Blackcaps
won
the
2021
WTC,
beating
India
in
the
final
at
Lord’s.
But
since,
they
have
managed
only
2
Test
match
victories.

New

WTC
Rank:

New
Zealand
are
currently
sitting
in
8th
position
in
the
WTC
2021-23
cycle
table,
just
above
bottom-placed
Bangladesh.
They
have
only
36
points
after
playing
11
Test
matches,
across
5
Test
series.

New
Zealand
Yet
to
Win
a
Test
Series
since
2021
Final:

The
Kiwis
have
had
a
torrid
period
post
their
WTC
victory
in
2021.
They
haven’t
managed
a
single
series
win
since
their
triumph
against
India
in
the
final.

In
this
current
WTC
cycle,
they
have
had
five
test
assignments.

New
Zealand
vs
India:

New
Zealand
kicked
off
their
current
cycle
against
India.
They
toured
India
in
2021
for
a
two-match
Test
series.
The
Blackcaps
drew
the
first
match
in
Kanpur,
but
lost
the
second
match
in
Mumbai.
They
lost
the
series
1-0.

New
Zealand
vs
Bangladesh:

Their
second
assignment
was
against
Bangladesh
at
home
for
another
2-match
Test
series.
They
had
a
nightmare
start
to
the
series
as
the
Tigers
beat
them
in
the
first
match.
The
Blackcaps
came
back
in
the
second
match
strongly
to
win
by
innings
and
117
runs,
but
could
only
draw
the
series
1-1.

New

vs

The
two-match
Test
series
against
South
Africa
also
ended
in
a
1-1
draw.
New
Zealand
won
the
first
match
at
Christchurch
comprehensively,
but
failed
to
back
that
up
in
the
second
and
suffered
another
defeat
against
the
Proteas
at
home.

New
Zealand
vs
England:

The
crushing
blow
was
inflicted
in
the
England
series
in
the
summer
of
last
year.
The
WTC
Champions
travelled
to
England
in
hope
of
resurrecting
their
form,
but
got
thrashed
by
the
hosts
in
the
three-match
Test
series.
England
came
away
3-0
victorious
and
thus
the
chances
of
Kiwis
to
defend
their
crown
in
this
cycle
evaporated.

New

vs

Tim
Southee-led
New
Zealand
struggled
to
get
a
positive
result
against
Pakistan
as
well.
Pakistan
were
recently
battered
3-0
by
England
at
home,
but
Kiwis
couldn’t
capitalize
on
that.
Both
matches
of
the
two-match
Test
series
ended
in
draws.

New

Upcoming
Matches:

The
final
straw
for
New
Zealand
to
complete
this
disappointing
cycle
will
be
a
home
series
against
Sri
Lanka.
The
Blackcaps
host
the
Lankans
in
March
and
two
Test
matches
will
be
played
in
Christchurch
and
Wellington
respectively.

Their
hope
of
making
the
top
two
in
this
cycle
is
dead
and
buried,
but
at
least
they
can
improve
their
position
in
the
table.

Why
New
Zealand
Failed
in
this
WTC
Cycle:

To
dissect
this,
the
components
of
their
failure
can
be
categorized
into
two
parts.

Lack
of
Cutting
Edge

The
first
one
has
to
be
the
lack
of
conviction
in
crunch
situations.
There
have
been
instances
throughout
this
cycle
where
the
Kiwis
haven’t
been
able
to
capitalize
on
a
positive
momentum.
It
started
against
India
2021,
and
is
yet
to
be
treated
in
2023
as
they
just
squandered
an
opportunity
to
win
the
second
Test
against
Pakistan.
We
have
witnessed
them
missing
out
on
chances
to
finish
the
prey
which
has
backfired
and
has
caused
significant
damage
to
their
hopes.

Poor
Home
Form

They
have
missed
out
on
opportunities
to
win
Test
Series
at
home,
that
also
against
Bangladesh
and
South
Africa.
The
former,
although
are
a
much-improved
side,
shouldn’t
have
come
away
with
any
points
from
their
visit
down
under.
But
New
Zealand
allowed
the
Tigers
a
leeway
in
the
first
match
and
they
grabbed
it
with
both
hands.
Also,
another
home
series
against
South
Africa
has
also
put
a
significant
dent
in
their
quest.
