The Semi Final-1 fixture of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled between England and New Zealand on 10th November at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, at 07:30 PM IST. Here are ENG vs NZ Match Predictions.



  • England were seemed to be the toughest team in the WC 2021 campaign.
  • South Africa was only the team to beat England in the competition.
  • Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone have been outstanding with both the bat and the ball.
  • Chris Woakes has the potential to be the game-changer in this game.
  • England hitters must be cautious when facing Boult.

New Zealand:

  • New Zealand sealed the Semis spot by thrashing Afghanistan in their recent match.
  • New Zealand’s batting hasn’t been spectacular, but they’ve kept the innings under control.
  • Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell will be key at the top order.
  • In the middle, Devon Conway and Kane Williamson will be crucial.
  • Trent Boult has been exceptional for New Zealand in the T20 WC so far.


The temperature in Abu Dhabi will be around 23 degrees in the Evening. As a result, Dew might just be the primary consideration in the team’s attempt, to keep its dominance on the field.


The pitch is little slower, but the batters need to adopt the conditions early. The new ball provides some movement for the pacers. However, with the fresh new ball moving along very well, the hitters will aim to go after the bowling. As the game progresses, spinners will take up the fight, resulting in a more balanced battle between bat and ball. During the toss, both sides will prefer to make a choice to chase.


England Predicted XI:

Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

New Zealand Predicted XI:

Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Kane Williamson (c), Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult


New Zealand would have a challenging task facing England, who would be missing one of their most in-form players, Jason Roy. The speed combo of Tim Southe and Trent Boult will pose a challenge to the England hitters, whereas Jos Buttler and the others will try to bat freely as they have in the past.

Who Will Win This Game?

England will have a high chance to win the match against New Zealand in the Semi Final-1. On the other hand, New Zealand will also step in with a tough team to continue their winning streak to advance to the Finals.
