Teams Preview

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand team will be dejected with their batting efforts in the first match after scoring just 153 runs in their 20 overs. Ross Taylor, Tim Seifert, Colin Munro, and Colin De Grandhomme got starts in the match but failed to convert them into a big score. Daryl Mitchell finished the innings with the flourish with his 17-ball 30 towards the end. Ross Taylor was the top scorer with 44 runs to his name. Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson put pressure on the scoring rate early on in the match but were not able to take wickets to dent England team. Mitchell Santner was their best bowler in the match with figures of 4-0-23-3. Ish Sodhi and Scott Kuggleijn were taken to the cleaners and gave away runs at more than 9 RPO in the match. James Neesham may replace Scott kuggleijn in the playing XI in this match.

Key Players:

Colin Munro – Munro scored a century in the warm-up just a couple of days ago but missed out in the first T20I match. He will look to make a mark in this match with a big knock.

Mitchell Santner – Santner was consistently troubling the English batsmen and took the wickets of Bairstow, Vince, and Malan in the match. He was the only wicket-taker in the Kiwi side in the first match.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, James Neesham, Tim Southee (c), Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson

England Preview

England team rode on the back of James Vince`s half-century to complete the chase with ease in the end. Johnny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan played vital cameos of 30+ runs to set up the match at different phases of the chase. They were strangled for runs early in the match by the Kiwi new ball bowlers. England bowlers used the slowness of the track very effectively with their variations, slower balls, and yorkers. Chris Jordan picked up two wickets while Adil Rashid, Patrick Brown, and Sam Curran chipped in with three wickets in the match. Tom Curran bowled a very economical spell of 4-1-25-0 in the match. Both debutants Sam Curran and Patrick Brown shined with the ball and in fact, had identical bowling figures of 4-0-33-1.

Key Players:

James Vince – Vince played a very mature and responsible knock of 57 runs off 38 balls with 7 boundaries and 2 sixes on a tough two-paced wicket. But, he will be dejected to not finish the game.

Chris Jordan – Jordan dismissed the well-set Tim Seifert and Colin Munro in the crucial junctures of the match when a partnership was looking to build. His wickets never allowed momentum in the Kiwi side while they were batting.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings (wk), Sam Curran, Lewis Gregory, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Patrick Brown
