We are into the semifinals of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 and the 1st semifinal would see England take on New Zealand. Both sides have displayed good form right throughout the tournament. New Zealand comes into this contest with a big win against Afghanistan, their fourth consecutive win, making them confident. In their last league game, England surprisingly lost against South Africa but have stamped their authority throughout the tournament. 

England has had a brilliant record against New Zealand at neutral venues and has lost only once against them. England’s batsmen have been in good form and this would add to the side’s confidence in this game. New Zealand has momentum on its side and has got the team combination right. It is expected to be a tight contest and it will be interesting if the side can repeat this performance here. 

England Preview

Eoin Morgan’s suffered its first loss of the tournament as went down against South Africa by 10 runs in their last league game. The poor efforts with the ball led to the side’s loss, and Morgan would like to leave that behind. Morgan would know that New Zealand is a side in great form, and his team would need to come up with its best performance to win the game here.  

Jason Roy’s injury is a big blow on the side and in-form Jos Buttler would need to set up a good opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow. In the middle order, the side would like to see runs from Moeen Ali, Dawid Malan, and Morgan, and all these players have scored runs in the tournament. Down the order, the side would look for runs from Liam Livingstone and Sam Billings making it a very formidable batting line-up. 

It was a bad day for their bowlers against South Africa and the side would want to make improvements in this area. Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali must get early wickets as the Kiwis are doing well at the top. Adil Rashid was expensive in the last game and the side would like to see tight spells from him along with Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, and Livingstone in the middle overs.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Billings, Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Chris Jordan, Mark Wood, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes

New Zealand Preview

Kane Williamson’s side made a strong entry into the semifinal defeating Afghanistan by 8 wickets. In a must-win game, the side produced a clinical performance to win the game convincingly. England would be a much tougher opponent and has a good bowling attack and the side would have to come up with a stellar show to overcome this hurdle. 

Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell have put up good opening stands in the tournament and the same would be required from them in this game. In the middle order, the side has Williamson, Devon Conway, and Glenn Phillips in great form, and this would add their confidence. With James Neesham, Mitchell Santner Adam Milne in the side, their batting looks good. 

Given England's strengths at the top, Tim Southee and Trent Boult would have to produce a good spell in this game. Ish Sodhi and Santner have made good use of the conditions in this tournament, and they would have to restrict the flow of runs in the middle overs. The side would also like to see good spells from Neesham and Milne in this must-win game. 

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Kane Williamson (c), Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Tim Seifert (wk), Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Trent Boult

Weather Conditions

We expect to see a warm evening in Abu Dhabi on November 10 and conditions are expected to be great for batting as the ball has come onto the bat nicely in the last few games that have been played here. There would be pressure on both the teams, and the side batting first would like to put 170 or more on the board.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi has a flat surface, and the outfield is fast and we have seen batsmen score runs easily at this venue in the past. It is a tough wicket for the fast bowlers as there isn’t much assistance for them. Spinners have enjoyed a good record here in the past as the ball tends to turn sharply.

Toss: To Bowl

Most teams have preferred to bowl first at this venue as we have seen big scores being chased easily. There have been swing for the fast bowlers in the early overs and the conditions become easier as we move to the second innings. The side winning the toss would like to bowl first here.

It will be a high-pressure contest as the side losing the game would have to pack their bags and go home. New Zealand has won the last four games and this would add to their confidence. Their batting and bowling attack has done well. England despite their loss in the last game has been the best side in the tournament. They have a power-packed batting line-up and this would provide them with a slight edge in the game.

England to win!
