Who will win today match

This New Zealand team is a streetwise outfit, full of players who can mould themselves as per conditions. Captain Kane Williamson is a specimen of a player who is beyond the conditions and the behaviour of the pitch. England bowlers won’t have room to make mistakes against him. But England are hurt following their easy capitulation in India.
But the familiar conditions means Joe Root and Co. is likely to get on top here. In our Dream 11
Today Match Prediction we back England to win this match.
