The Kiwi’s T20 cricket team will play practice match of T20 World Cup against English team at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Saturday. Where to watch this practice match will live broadcast on Star Sports, Super Sports, Sky Sports and Ten Sports as match starts at 15:00 local (09:30 GMT | 14:30 PKT).
New Zealand are one of the in-form teams in world cricket. The Black Caps have played some great cricket, defeating Pakistan and New Zealand in their last two T20 series comprehensively. New Zealand have a well-balanced team, with quality batsman and bowlers in their side.
Trent Boult, Adam Milne and Mitchell McClenaghan are going to be a huge force with the ball, but it is their batting unit, which looks mighty strong. They have some big hitters – Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and Corey Anderson – and some experienced players like Kane Richardson and Ross Taylor, which makes them a formidable unit. These batsmen have already lit up during the training sessions, and they are hitting huge sixes, according to batting coach Craig McMillan.
Keeping the Indian conditions in mind, England are arriving with three spinners in their 15-member squad, which also has the surprise inclusion on uncapped spinning-allrounder Liam Dawson. The slow left-armer from Hampshire has been termed as the ‘mystery spinner’ by English media. Trevor Bayliss has never seen him play and he has not much of T20 experience at the domestic level. His selection was based upon his recent performance with the England Lions. He could be a surprise package considering that none of the teams would have seen him play earlier.
New Zealand vs England Match Prediction
New Zealand will win the toss and choose to ball first and win the match. England should fancy their chances of reaching the semis from Group 1 in the Super 10 stage. Their first match of the tournament, which is against West Indies, will be crucial to their confidence as every wants to begin with a win. Among other opponents in the group, England have played South Africa recently and will know their strengths and weaknesses, while Sri Lanka are going through a rough phase and their loss against India and the fourth-place finish in the Asia Cup would have shattered their confidence.
England bat deep with Stokes at No. 6 and Moeen Ali coming in to bat at seven. Joe Root has been the most consistent batsman for England in last few years and he is one player who adds class and strength to the English batting lineup. The 25-year-old, who is seen as the future of England cricket, was hit in the face during a catching practice on Wednesday and the England team will hope that the injury is not a serious one because he is going to be key player for them.
