New Zealand vs England Highlights Today, Wednesday 10-11-2021. 1st Semi-Final ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, from Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Williamson says: “Good surface, a bit of dew later. Today’s a great occasion, looking forward to getting involved. England are always strong, depth is one of their strengths. We must focus on the cricket we want to play.”
Eoin Morgan says he’d have done the same, “hopefully it doesn’t decide the game”. On Roy, “devastating to come so close to the latter stages of the tournament, but an opportunity presents itself for Sam.” Bairstow to open as expected. “NZ are an extremely strong side, not newcomers to finals and semi-finals, they’ve been doing it a lot longer than we have.”
New Zealand team: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Daryl Mitchell, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Devon Conway (wk), 5 Glenn Phillips, 6 James Neesham, 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Adam Milne, 9 Tim Southee, 10 Ish Sodhi, 11 Trent Boult.
