Title contenders England will meet New Zealand today in the first semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup. English champion ODI World Cup team starter Jason Roy has been out of the tournament due to injury, but there is still no shortage of ‘X factor’ (special ability) players from the team. On the other hand, there is the New Zealand team that is performing consistently after losing to Pakistan early on.

In the last two World Cup meetings between England and New Zealand, New Zealand has failed to win. In the 2016 T20 World Cup semi-finals, England won by 7 wickets with 17 balls to spare. Apart from this, after the match and the Super Over draw between the two teams in the final of the 2019 ODI World Cup, the decision was made based on the calculation of limits in which England won. Once again, both teams meet in the semifinals of the ICC T20 World Cup.

Butler-Bairstow can go for the opening

Even before the tournament, England is being regarded as a strong contender. They also did well in the Super-12 round, but lost to South Africa in the final match. This defeat also indicated that England could be defeated if the opposing team did their best. Jos Buttler, the starter for the team led by Eoin Morgan, has been in excellent shape.

It has marked the only century of this tournament so far. Jason Roy has had a good bond with Butler, but Jason’s services are no longer available to the team due to a calf injury. There’s a chance Jonny Bairstow could line up in the opening with Butler. Moeen Ali plays well for effects. Speaking of January 1, 2018, its attack rate against spinners in T20 has been 163.54.

Moeen can race quickly in the third order. Your role will be important. Sam Billings can find a place in the game XI that can handle responsibility in the middle order. All batters on the team have the opportunity to open their hands before the knockout round.

Rashid is responsible for taking the wicket.

There are definitely concerns in the bowling department as Tymal Mills withdrew from the tournament due to injury. Mills did well on the Death Over. Well, there’s Mark Wood, but he doesn’t have the variety like Mills. It was very expensive against South Africa. Spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid will play important roles. His eyes will be on taking grounds in the power play and in the middle.

New Zealand bowling

It’s fine that the New Zealand team lost in the 2019 World Cup final, but the team has consistently performed well in ICC tournaments. The team led by Kane Williamson managed to win the World Trials Championship title. Those who strengthen the image of ‘Gentleman’ in world cricket, also have a strong claim to win the title in this tournament. They are counted as the best bowling team in the tournament.

This team had restricted India to 110, while a dangerous team like Afghanistan could only score 125 runs against them. Fast bowlers Trent Boult and Tim Southee shoot very fast with the correct line and direction. Lockie Ferguson has been replaced by Adam Milne. Both Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner spinners are quite inexpensive. Sodhi has also been successful in taking windows in the middle.

Blame it on Guptill-Williamson

The New Zealand hitters have also made a good impression. Starter Martin Guptill is racking up runs, teammate Daryl Mitchell is also in excellent shape. Captain Kane Williamson has also scored in the last game. You would like to make a memorable contribution in an important match like the semi-finals. The Abu Dhabi field is also batting friendly. In such a situation, a great score can be seen.

Probable XI of both teams

England: Sam Billings, Jos Buttler (week), David Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Ken Williamson (captain), Devon Conway (goalkeeper), Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Bolt.


  • Englishman David Malan is three sixes away from completing his 200 sixes in the T20 format.
  • Jonny Bairstow is just two receptions away from scoring a century of receptions in this format.
  • England captain Eoin Morgan in T20 this year
  • It has an average of 17.59, which is the lowest.
  • England’s average score against New Zealand is 163 runs.

Terrain and weather information

The field at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi is useful for hitters. Compared to other pitches, good runs are scored here. Fast bowlers also get help in Abu Dhabi. Playing first, the team that scores 170 runs can challenge. Due to the effect of the dew at night, it will be easy to chase the target. England will play a night game for the first time in Abu Dhabi. This throw also helps fast players in the power game.
