Match Preview

ENG vs NZ: Group 1 teams, England and New Zealand will clash against each other in the 33rd match of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. The match will take place on 1st November 2022. The iconic Gabba stadium will be the host of this game.

England successively won their opening against Afghanistan, but luck did not favor them further. One game was washed away owing to heavy rain. But, they faced an upset against Ireland as they suffered a shocking 5-run loss. They gave away all in the chase, but the rain decided to play spoilsport. The game was halted and DLS came into play. Ireland was 5 runs ahead and was declared winners as the match could not be played further. Now the semi-final spot looks dicey for them.

Meanwhile, New Zealand is strong in Group 1. They are the table toppers with 2 strong wins. They have the highest net run rate of all in the group. Glenn Philips led the team to a perfect victory in their previous fixture against Sri Lanka. Post that, Trent Boult dismantled the Lankan batting lineup completely. The Black Caps are coming on nicely as a unit and are strong contenders for the title.
