New Zealand Cricket World Cup Squad - New Zealand Betting Odds

The New Zealand team are without any clear stars in their outfit but New Zealand is all about the sum of the parts which go into making them a serious contender for the 2011 Cricket World Cup Betting. They are perhaps the most consistent team in world cricket without looking like ever winning a major tournament; they are tough to beat in 50 over cricket and should have a decent tournament on the sub-continent.

The key man for New Zealand at the 2011 Cricket World Cup will be Brendon McCullum who is an explosive hitter for the Kiwi's, he is the sort of player that can turn a game in a matter of overs and New Zealand are never beaten until McCullum is out. He along with Skipper Daniel Vettori are all important for a side that does lack any real strength and depth, Vettori is dangerous with his tricky left arm spin which should prove effective on the flat tracks in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

New Zealand have been drawn in Group A along with the likes of Australia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan but should have no problem moving into the next phase of the tournament, they rarely slip-up in the group stages and it would be a big surprise if they were to have any trouble this time around. It is hard to see them going too much further than that though as they are likely to come up against a better team when the competition gets tougher in the latter stages.

The Final New Zealand cricket World Cup 2011 squad should be made up of the current batch of contracted players.
