England and New Zealand will meet in the second cricket match of the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. Even though both the teams have already secured a berth in the semifinals of the tournament, the match will decide the semifinal lineup. The one that finishes second in Group B will take on the topper of Group A and the topper of Group B will get to play the team that finishes second in Group A.

In that sense, this will be an important match. Moreover, no team would want to lose momentum either as it could be the key in the knockout stage of the competition. Before the final group stage match of Women's T20 at the Commonwealth Games, here is a prediction of the key events in the match and the eventual winner.

1. Toss Prediction

New Zealand could win the toss before the final group stage cricket match at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. So far they have a 50 per cent toss winning rate having won a toss and lost another. However, England are yet to win a toss in this competition. So the White Ferns should be able to win the toss.

2. Win Possibility

England are the favourites to win this fixture. Despite losing the toss in both their matches, they have managed to win those games. Moreover, they have a phenomenal record against New Zealand in this format. The two teams have faced each other a total of 28 times and while New Zealand have won 6 of these games, the Three Lions have won on the remaining 22 occasions.

3. Team of the Day

The Team of the Day for this match has to be England. Having said that, New Zealand have been exemplary in this competition and are currently at the top of the Group B table with a better net run rate than England.

4. Powerplay Score

New Zealand have scored an average of 45 runs in the powerplay in CWG 2022. England also have scored at more or less the same rate and have an average powerplay score of 45.5 in the first six overs at the Commonwealth Games. So predicting both sides to score over 40 runs in this match.

5. Average Score

135.57 is the average first innings score from the 7 completed matches at CWG 2022. This does not take into consideration the India vs Pakistan Group A game which was reduced to 18 overs a side. All the matches have been played at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.
