It’s Payback time for Kane Williamson’s New Zealand for the dramatic loss suffered in the 2019 ODI World Cup. Get ready to witness an exciting encounter between England and New Zealand in the first semifinal live on YuppTV today.
The finalists of the 2019 ODI World Cup will square off again in the first semifinal of the T20 World Cup 2021. More than half of the Kiwi players who played the mega-final are part of today’s match and are determined to settle the scores. In a typical turn of events, the Blackcaps lost the final when the game got tied, moving to super over, ending in a tie.
England started off the campaign with a clinical victory over West Indies and registered 4 back-to-back wins to qualify for the semis. This is the third time in a row that England entered the semifinals. The English team played fearless cricket and topped the Group 1 points table with the highest net run rate. While Jason Roy, Jos Butler provided the quick start with the bat, Chris Jordan, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, and Moeen Ali bowled brilliant balls to dominate the opponents. England had won their first trophy in 2010 when they slammed Australia in the final game. The team reached the finals in the 2016 World Cup but lost to West Indies when Carlos Brathwaite hit four consecutive sixes.
New Zealand suffered an early blow in the tournament against Pakistan, but the team bounced back brilliantly and registered four wins against India, Afghanistan, Namibia, and Scotland. The Kiwi’s strength is their aggressive bowling unit and is one of the strongest bowling lineups. Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Adam Milne, Ish Sodhi have shown excellent character. With Guptill and Kane Williamson in good form, New Zealand has no serious concerns. The Black Caps had a disappointing record against England in earlier ICC events and will go all the way to set the record straight.
