New Zealand’s Main Rival is Injury ahead of the Upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup West Indies 2007

New Zealand is always a favorite team in World Cup Cricket though they have not won any of the championship of world cup cricket. New Zealand is still a strong power in world cricket and will still be regarded as one of the probable champion of the upcoming world cup cricket which is going to be started from the 11th of March in Caribbean region. However, New Zealand has gone through some bad situation in the recent series due to the injury problem of some of the key players like Shane Bond, one of the fastest bowlers of today’s cricket, Daniel Vettori, one of the best left arm spinners of present day’s cricket.

However, with the excellent captaincy of veteran captain Stephen Fleming, the side has the capability to destroy any cricket power in the world. It is also said that though the team has not so many stars, they play as a team rather than depending on individual performance.

It is true that they have reached at the semi-final stages of world cup for number of times but they have not reach to the final stage. Now it will also be a challenge for the balanced team to show their potential at the biggest stage of world cup. Perhaps, this would be the last world cup tournament for their captain Stephen Fleming who has recently been the longest serving captain in the history of world cricket. The side can be inspired to do something special at least to show their homage to their captain.
