Squad Comparison

New Zealand

While New Zealand started as clear favorites to win the 1st T20I against visitors England, the batting line-up struggled to give the team a strong start. After losing 2 early wickets in the power play, Tim Seifert and Colin de Grandhomme could not pace their innings enough to get NZ to a strong position. Ross Taylor batted down at number 5 and played a very crucial inning of 44 runs off 35 balls while Daryl Mitchell had the best strike rate of all with 30 off 17 at number 6.

For a batting line-up like England has along with the pitch at Christchurch, 153 runs were never going to be enough. While Mitchell Santner delivered a great spell with 3 for 23 in 4 overs, Ish Sodhi and Scott Kuggeleijn were both wicketless and expensive bowling at economies of 11.67 and 9.50. Colin Munro and Martin Guptill would be under pressure to perform in the 2nd T20i match while James Neesham is likely to replace Scott Kuggeleijn.


England picked Patrick Brown for his debut T20I match. While England was missing their regular top bowlers, Chris Jordan made up for it with figures of 2 for 28 while Tom Curran delivered 1 maiden over in his 0 for 25 in 4 overs spell. While Sam Curran conceded 33 runs in his spell, he gave England the all-important breakthrough dismissing Martin Guptill in the 3rd over of the innings. The bowling performance was an overall team effort with 4 of the 5 bowlers picking up wickets while Tom Curran being the most economical bowler.

Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan opened the innings for England and will likely do the same in the 2nd T20i. The opening duo started things off at a slow pace and built a 37-runs partnership for the 1st wicket. James Vince set the platform for England’s chase with 59 off 38 balls while Eoin Morgan added finishing touches with unbeaten 34 off 21 balls at number 4. Though England’s performance was not exceptional, the players consolidated their efforts in both departments getting the best results for the team. As long as the top 4 continue playing their natural game, England stands a very good chance of a win in the 2nd match. While the bowling would be a concern for England and Morgan would look for consistency in the bowling attack.

Our Prediction for New Zealand vs England

New Zealand is favorite to win the match

New Zealand has won the last 5 matches at this venue and that would make them favorites to win at the top betting sites in India. While NZ’s bowling wasn’t exceptional in the last game, it would repeat if they’re defending anything below 170 runs. Smaller boundaries would make for a high scoring game at this venue and the team batting first would need to put on a big total. Either of these teams would fancy chasing a total rather than defending given their bowling form.
