The New Zealand team is such a team which always perform in the world cup and which always has remained unable to win this mega title. The New Zealand team has been the consistent team in the world arena, especially in the world cup. Let by the natural leader, Stephen Fleming they are a ball of fire in any type of game, especially in the world cup.

Their recent performance in the past two series against England and world champion Australia has brightened their hopes for the world cup. They have loaded their side with big guns starting from captain himself. The eminent and peerless skipper Stephen Fleming always lead his team from the front. His opening stunt set the tone of the game. He takes on the pressure from upfront and plays the new ball with such alacrity, it disheart many bowlers. The power plays seem to tailor-made for his aggressive and stylish batting.

Lou Vincent, called as “human pendulum” in the game, back at home. He is currently opening with Fleming and has proved its mettle in latest series against Australia. He was instrumental in thrashing the world champion and bringing down them from the No.1 in world ranking. If this human pendulum keep on going upwards, New Zealand will also go upward for sure.

Other delightful batting stars to watch in the New Zealand team are Peter Fulton, Brendon McCullum the wicket keeper and Mark Gillespie. Though all these three are in-experienced, but they have shown their sheen in the recent times and hence earned their places in world cup squad.

New Zealand is also proud on all-rounders like Craig McMillan, Scott Styris and Ross Taylor. They have also packed their team with bowlers like Shane Bond, Daryl Tuffey, Daniel Vettori and Jacob Oram.

Other pearls in Black Caps include: James Franklin, Michael Mason and Jeetan Patel.
