England has a tough challenge in the 33rd game of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 against New Zealand. The rain washout against Australia has complicated matters for the team which lost to Ireland earlier. New Zealand has looked like one of the best sides in the tournament. They come here with a massive win against Sri Lanka.
England shall feel the heat after their poor show against Ireland. Their batters and bowlers haven't been in the best form and have struggled on these hard and bouncy wickets. New Zealand has won both games by big margins. These are the two top sides of the world, and the game would be high in intensity.
Jos Buttler's side can't afford to lose this game. Their previous game against Australia was abandoned due to rain. They have 3 points after three games and share it with two other sides in the group. A win here would keep them in the hunt for a berth in the next round. The Kiwis would be tough to beat, and Buttler shall expect a good show from his players.
Alex Hales and Buttler must get off to a good start, as New Zealand have their new ball bowlers in good form. They have firepower in the middle order, and runs from Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone shall put the side in a good position. Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, and Chris Woakes add depth to this batting line-up.
Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes must get early breakthroughs, as the New Zealand top order has done well in recent games. The side would also like to see good spells from Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood in the middle overs. Curran brings variety to this attack, making it strong.

Kane Williamson's side tops the points table after their convincing 65-run win against Sri Lanka. They had already defeated Australia by a big margin and looked in excellent form. Their batting line-up has done well, and the time shall look to carry with the same form. Williamson would like to win this game and book a berth in the next round.
Devon Conway has done well in the tournament, and he will look to offer an electrifying start with Finn Allen. Glenn Phillips comes here with a hundred under his belt and needs to build partnerships in the middle order with Williamson and Darryl Mitchell. James Neesham and Mitchell Santner can add quick runs and strengthen the side's batting.
Trent Boult and Tim Southee bowled well in tandem in the last game. They would look to bowl a great burst of fire with the new ball. Lockie Ferguson must bowl better lines than he has done. The side would also expect a good show from Ish Sodhi and Santner, as England have clean hitters in the side.

There are predictions for rain and thunderstorms in Brisbane on November 1. The batting conditions would be difficult as the ball shall move around during the game. The side batting first would eye a score of 160 runs on this surface, as this will immediately put pressure on the opponents, given the conditions.
The Gabba, Brisbane, has been an excellent T20 venue, and we have seen several high-scoring games. The smaller size of the venue allows the batsmen to hit the ball in the air, unlike the bigger Australian grounds. Fast bowlers have always enjoyed bowling on this surface. There isn't much on this surface for the spinners, and they have to focus on containing opponents.
There are chances of heavy rains during the game, and there would be a cloud over. In this scenario, the side batting second would have an advantage. We expect the captain winning the toss to invite the opposition to bat first.
England shall have to battle for their survival in the tournament. Hence, the pressure would be on them in this game. Their batsmen must take the lead and tackle the adverse bowling conditions after looking rusty against Ireland. New Zealand would have their spirits high and have their batsmen and new ball bowlers in good form. It will make New Zealand favorites to win the game.
