ENG vs NZ – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
England is currently two points behind New Zealand at the second spot with one win and one loss. Unfortunately, their third group fixture against Australia was dismissed due to rain. The English squad is in a very vulnerable situation as they can’t afford to lose the game. If they do, they will be out of the World Cup and that will be a huge shock to the team management.
Jos Buttler and Alex Hales will have to start their game and give their team good momentum. They will also have to maintain a higher run rate to make sure the middle order does not get the pressure of maintaining partnerships. The middle order looks weak and in recent games, Ben Stokes, Harry Brooks, and Moeen Ali have failed to score runs.
Team management has high expectations from Liam Livingstone. He will have to control the run rate of the opposition during the middle overs. Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes must get early breakthroughs, as the New Zealand top order has done well in recent games.
New Zealand has come out as one of the most surprising teams in the world cup. With three wins and 5 points, Kiwis are leading the charts of Group 1. They also have a high net run rate and their batting order has done a brilliant job in recent games. If they win the game against England, New Zealand will secure their place in the semi-finals.
Devon Conway has done well in the tournament, and he will look to offer an electrifying start with Finn Allen. Glenn Philips scored a century in the last game against Sri Lanka, and his confidence will be on cloud 9 for the game against England.
Trent Boult and Tim Southee have built a good partnership in the bowling attack. They are aware of each other’s bowling equation and have done wonders in the past. The side would also expect a good show from Ish Sodhi and Santner, as England have clean hitters in the side.
ENG vs NZ – ICC T20 World Cup – Probable Playing XI
England: Alex Hales, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Dawid Malan, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid
New Zealand: Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson
ENG vs NZ – ICC T20 World Cup – Toss Prediction and Pitch Report
Gabba is known for high-scoring games. It always supports the batsmen as the bowl comes on the bat and it has a good bounce. However, according to the weather report, the game might be interrupted by rain and in that case, a team batting second will have an advantage.
ENG vs NZ – ICC T20 World Cup – Match Prediction
England will be coming for this game to win or else they won’t have any future in the ongoing world cup. New Zealand won’t be under any pressure to do that. We predict New Zealand winning the fixture on Tuesday.
