New Zealand are all but through to the next round but face an opponent who has given them both sweet and bitter memories in the last few years. A New Zealand-England encounter always goes back to their epic in 2019, and then New Zealand’s resurgance in 2021. There are around 13 players who were part of the epic in 2019, and around 15 players who were part of last years epic. Ben Stokes and Daryl Mitchell, players who produced epic knocks in either of the encounters are their, with Ben Stokes back to facing New Zealand in a World Cup for the first time since that event in 2019.

ENG vs NZ Key Players
Glenn Phillips is in his own league right now. He singlehandedly beat Sri Lanka, and is looking very explosive, while also displaying some flexibility with the bat. Considering his value, and the options he brings, Glenn Phillips is going to be a very fun and interesting player to watch in the coming years.
England’s Superman takes on New Zealand again in a World Event. He missed out the previous encounter in last years World Cup. Now, in Australia, one of the biggest stages in World Cricket, he takes on New Zealand as England look to stay in contention. His bowling is working very nicely, but it will be his batting which comes into the spotlight, as Ben Stokes still has a lot to prove with all he offers in T20 cricket.

ENG vs NZ Match Tips
England and New Zealand are two really strong teams with varying approaches. On first look, England, who are very aggressive look favorites. New Zealand though are not far behind. They are in good form, are bowling well, and know how to get the job done. While they are on the top of the table though, England may still back themselves to win the upcoming game.
