Analysis

England have been one of the top performing batting sides and have shown consistency throughout the tournament. With Jason Roy ruled out the game, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow will be the best batting picks, with the former being an excellent captain choices. All-rounders Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone have shown great display of cricket with both bat as well as the ball and are must-haves in one’s fantasy team.

The Blackcaps will aim to sustain their momentum over England as they walk into this game on the back of a win against Afghanistan. Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill will be the top batting options from the side. Besides them, Daryl Mitchell and Mitchell Santner can be smart options in one’s fantasy team. The Kiwis’ bowling has been their X factor with Trent Boult and Ish Sodhi being the key bowlers.
