New Zealand need nothing less than a big win against the West Indies in their make-or-break Super Eight match of the ICC World Twenty20 today at Pallekalle.

Two defeats in a row have brought New Zealand to this position, where there is not scope for error.

However, a mere win will not help the cause of the Kiwis and they will have to win with a big margin and hope that England lose their last match today against Sri lanka.

With that result, Sri Lanka will be through to the semifinals and the other three teams -- New Zealand, West Indies and England -- will be equal on two points each.

The Net-Run-Rate then will come into play and the team with better run-rate will advance along with the hosts.
