T20 WC 2022 | England vs New Zealand | Fantasy tips & predictions

The 2019 World Cup finalists meet again in the 33rd match of the T20 World Cup. The last time these two teams met was at the semi finals of the 2021 T20 World Cup. New Zealand beat England by 5 wickets, knocking the 2010 T20 champions out of the World Cup.

New Zealand have been undefeated in this T20 World Cup. They beat Australia and Sri Lanka comfortably, while their match against Afghanistan was abandoned due to rain. New Zealand are one of the best teams in this World Cup as they have done well in all 3 departments: batting, bowling, and fielding.

England's T20 World Cup campaign as been has not gone smoothly. They beat Afghanistan in their first game but lost to Ireland by 5 runs (DRS). England are one loss away from getting virtually knocked out of the T20 World Cup and they will look to go all guns blazing against New Zealand to keep their semi-final hopes alive.
