In the 1st semi-final of the T20 World Cup, England are set to take on New Zealand on 10th November, 2021. The Eoin-Morgan led side have been phenomenal this season and are looking as favourites in the match against New Zealand. However, Jason Roy’s injury could prove to be a big blow for England as he has been ruled out of the tournament. The Kiwis will look forward to make the most of the game, as the winner will qualify for the final of the T20 World Cup 2021. The stage is set for some exciting cricketing action for the high voltage semi-finals between England and New Zealand.
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.
