Squad Comparison

New Zealand

New Zealand took a 2-1 lead in the 5-match T20I series with 2 consecutive wins following the initial loss. However, riding on Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan’s innings England defeated the hosts by 76 runs in the 4th T20. As a result, the two teams will go into the 5th T20 match with the series tied 2-2. While Trent Boult was included in the playing XI for the last match, he was wicketless for 35 runs in his 4 overs. Blair Tickner and Ish Sodhi were very expensive while Daryl Mitchell making it back to the XI conceded 25 runs in 1 over.

Winning the toss and electing to bowl first didn’t work out well for New Zealand as they ended up conceding 241 runs. While chasing such a big total was always a tough task even at a great batting track, NZ’s middle-order failed miserably. As a result, the hosts finished 165-10 with Tim Southee being the top batsman for NZ with 39 off 15 balls. While Colin Munro and Martin Guptill haven’t played a big inning at the top, New Zealand is dependent on Colin de Grandhomme and Ross Taylor in the middle. If Tim Seifert at number 3 and Daryl Mitchell at number 6 don’t contribute, the pressure will be on Grandhomme and Taylor to score. The hosts would need a good batting performance from the middle-order coupled with a comeback from Trent Boult and Tim Southee with the ball.

England

England’s middle-order came to the rescue in the 4th T20I. Dawid Malan and Eoin Morgan together added 182 runs for the 3rd wicket after the hosts found themselves 58-2 in the 8th over with both openers back to the hut. Dawid Malan scored unbeaten 103 off 51 balls and became England’s top batsman for 3rd time in a row. Eoin Morgan had scored 49 in the 3rd T20I and continued his form with 91 off 41 balls in the 4th T20I batting first.

While the batting still revolves pretty much around the top 4 batsmen, the inclusion of Chris Jordan back in the side has helped the visitors. The bowling combination in the 4th T20I was an almost perfect one and England would probably continue with the same. While Matthew Parkinson picked 4, Chris Jordan picked 2 wickets defending the massive total. It can be said that the huge total set by the English batsmen must’ve given the bowlers liberty to make courageous choices with their bowling. While Parkinson was the top bowler for England, he was also the most expensive one, bowling at 11.75 r.p.o.
