ENG vs NZ, 1st Semi-Final Dream11 Today Match Prediction: The first semi-final of the T20 world cup is right here, Two teams who saw the ecstasy and agony of the 2019 world cup final are going to face off against each other once again in an ICC knockout to provide viewers an unforgettable experience. Both teams are in great form and have lost just match in the tournament. Let’s see what will happen, when both these equally strong sides face off against each other.
England is a better side by all margins taking into account the form that they showed in this competition. They have been brutal in all departments of the game, giving the opposition little chance to get ahead of them in the game. But the absence of Roy and Mills now gives an advantage to the Kiwis to get ahead of them. They have been in great form recently and if Boult and co. and get into the England middle-order easily, then Kiwi’s will have the game in their hands easily.
In the current scenario, England is the favourites by a slight margin. They are highly skilled in all departments of the game. That being said, we cannot count out New Zealand, they have defeated England in crunch games before. The absence of Roy and Mills gives a bit of advantage to Kiwis as well, but considering the form that they showed till now, they should be able to make up for that loss. Expect a fighting performance from Kiwis, especially from their bowling unit but bet in favour of England for this match. Even the prominent betting sites are also predicting an England win.
Betway- NZ- 2.50, ENG- 1.53
Both teams are expected to make a few changes to their lineup going into this do-or-die match.
Sam Billings/ Jonny Bairstow
Jonny Bairstow/ Sam Billings
He was in tremendous form in the last few matches. Expect a stunning performance from him yet again.
Jos is the boss when it comes to the shortest format of the game. He showed it in the last few matches. He averages over 100 in this edition of the T20 World Cup. Added to that, his ability to take down bowlers in the powerplay makes him a valuable asset for the English side.
Kane Williamson (c)
Kane Williamson is an underrated T20 player. He has the ability to play the role of an anchor and enforcer according to match situations. Expect the Kiwis captain to step up when needed for the team.
Conway was in fine form in all forms of the game in the last couple of years. Expect him to run through the English batting lineup.
