Squad Comparison

New Zealand

New Zealand bounced back in the 2nd T20i at Westpac, Wellington making it 6 wins in 6 matches at the venue. While Colin Munro was out early in the power play, Martin Guptill improved on his previous innings. Guptill added 41 off 28 balls while the top batsman for Blackcaps was all-rounder James Neesham at number 7 scoring 42 off 22 balls. Colin de Grandhomme also improved on his previous performance scoring quick 28 off 12 balls at number 4. While there is still room for improvement in the middle as Ross Taylor and Colin de Grandhomme would need to stay on the crease longer if New Zealand were to chase a big total.

When Daryl Mitchell and Mitchell Santner were out cheaply, it was James Neesham’s fiery innings towards the end that helped NZ finish with 176 runs on the board batting first. NZ skipper Tim Southee was another player to bounce back with improved performance as he finished with figures of 2 for 25. Mitchell Santner picked 3 for 25 and now has 6 wickets in 2 matches so far. While James Neesham may not be an ideal bowler in this format of the game and has high economy figures, Daryl Mitchell can find a breakthrough for the side.


England failed on the batting front as much as it did on the bowling. While Chris Jordan was the team top bowler for the second time in a row, Adil Rashid, Patrick Brown and Saqib Mahmood were all expensive in their spells. Saqib Mahmood and Rashid picked 1 wicket each bowling at economies of 11.50 and 10.00 r.p.o. Going into the 3rd T20i, Sam Curran and Chris Jordan will be the key bowlers for Eoin Morgan. Patric Brown hasn’t particularly impressed with his bowling skills and could make way for Tom Curran or Matthew Parkinson.

Saqib Mahmood had replaced Tom Curran, which didn’t work out well for the visitors. Though Tom Curran was wicketless in the 1st match, he was very economical in his spell. Lewis Gregory got 2 overs with the ball and picked up a wicket for 10 runs in the 2nd match. Chasing 177 on the ground with shorter boundaries, England lost Jonny Bairstow and James Vince for 0 and 1 run respectively. In addition, Sam Billings and Sam Curran were out for single-digit scores too. Bairstow, Vince, and Dawid Malan are all crucial batsmen when it comes to chasing a total like this. And the failure of two of the top 3 batsmen is always a tough one to recover from. England has a deep batting line-up with Lewis Gregory and Chris Jordan batting at numbers 7 and 8. The characteristics of an English loss are the failure of the top-order followed by a collapse in the middle through number 5 to 7.

Our Prediction for New Zealand vs England

New Zealand is favorite to win the match

There has been only 1 match played at this venue where New Zealand defeated West Indies defending 187 runs. The top betting sites in India have New Zealand as favorite to win with an indicative probability of 59.8% (1.67 odds) which is higher than the previous match. England does have a strong top-order with the likes of Dawid Malan, James Vince, and Jonny Bairstow while their bowling will again be a concern for the skipper in the next match. The visitors need Tom Curran back in the side and also to give Tom Banton an opportunity.
