New Zealand factbox for the Twenty20 World Cup opening at Lord's on Friday:

Strengths

New Zealand habitually punch above their weight in limited-overs cricket, scrapping tenaciously and fielding enthusiastically. Brendon McCullum, one of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket, is ably supported by Jesse Ryder, Ross Taylor and Jacob Oram.

Weaknesses

One-paced bowling, almost exclusively medium pace.

Key Player

Captain Daniel Vettori is the best finger spinner around, relying in one-day cricket on variations of flight and pace.

ODDS 9/1

Squad

Daniel Vettori (Captain), Neil Broom, Ian Butler, Brendon Diamanti, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum, Nathan McCullum, Peter McGlashan, Kyle Mills, Iain O'Brien, Jacob Oram, Jesse Ryder, Scott Styris, Ross Taylor.
