Live stream England vs New Zealand, 2021 T20 World Cup: Title-favorites but injured England will rely on their X-Factor players to outsmart a remarkably consistent New Zealand in the first T20 World Cup semi-final here on Wednesday.
England were the pre-tournament favorites and played as one for the majority of the Super 12 stage. However, their loss in the last group game against South Africa showed they were not. not an invincible team.
The absence of Jason Roy, who suffered a calf injury against the Proteas, is a big blow to the team heading into the semi-finals. Roy and Jos Buttler made arguably the tournament’s most destructive opening duo.
With Roy ruled out of the World Cup, there is a strong possibility that Jonny Bairstow will be promoted to batting alongside Buttler, who is expected to play another winning shot on Wednesday.
A big plus point is that most hitters spent valuable time in the middle before the knockout game. The role of spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid will be huge as they will aim to provide the wickets in the power play and intermediaries.
Players will also have the 2019 ODI World Cup final in mind where the two teams could only be separated by a limit count rule.
Since then, New Zealand have shown that they are not only a very consistent team in ICC events, they can also go all the way with their triumph in the World Trial Championship final.
The “nice people” of world cricket look good to finish first in this competition too.
