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.

ENG vs NZ T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

England

  • England lost the last match of the Super 12 to South Africa.
  • Jason Roy and Tymall Mills are injured and are ruled out of the competition. James Vince has been named as the replacement of Roy.
  • Jos Buttler is the leading run-scorer with 240 runs from 5 matches.

New Zealand

  • New Zealand defeated Afghanistan to end India’s hopes of a semi-final.
  • Martin Guptill is the leading run-scorer with 176 runs from 5 matches.
  • Trent Boult is the leading wicket-taker with 11 wickets from 5 matches.

ENG vs NZ Today Match Prediction

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.

ENG vs NZ Winning Chances

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
