England will face New Zealand in the 1st Semi Final of the T20 World Cup 2021. England is looking really strong and aggressive team who will face the calm and compact New Zealand and try to be the finalist. England and New Zealand have a history as England defeated New Zealand in the World Cup in an amazing and nail biting Final. It was the most interesting final as it ended up in a Super Over which in the end was won by England. England and New Zealand had equal score in the super over but England won based on the number of extra ball bowled in the super over.
England were the pre-tournament favorites, and they performed like it throughout the Super 12 stage. However, their loss against South Africa in the last group game demonstrated that they were not an unbeatable team. Jason Roy’s calf injury against the Proteas is a major loss for the squad heading into the semi-finals. The first partnership of Roy and Jos Buttler was undoubtedly the most destructive of the competition. Jos Buttler is in an amazing form and can be a game changer. England will want to win 2 World Cup trophies while New Zealand will want to win their 2nd world cup trophy(New Zealand won the World Test Championship).
With Roy ruled out of the World Cup, Jonny Bairstow could be promoted to bat alongside Buttler, who is anticipated to produce another match-winning performance on Wednesday. Going into the elimination game, the majority of the batters have spent significant time in the middle. Spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid will play a key role in the powerplay and middle overs, aiming to contribute wickets.
Players will also be thinking about the 2019 ODI World Cup final, where just a boundary countback rule might separate the two teams.
With their victory in the World Test Championship final, New Zealand has demonstrated that they are not just a very consistent side in ICC competitions, but that they can also go all the way. The calm and compact team of international cricket appear to be in good shape to win this competition as well.
