England vs New Zealand Second T20I


England were quick off the blocks to ambush New Zealand in the first T20I and record a scintillating seven-wicket win. Another win would make the series non-losable for the hosts, something they would love to achieve in the second match. This would be played at the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester on Friday night, IST time.

England never looked like they were away from this format for a long time. New Zealand on the other hand were run ragged and need a big rejig to compete on even keel. It looks like advantage England once again and I am backing them to complete another win.

  • England have won 8 of their last 13 matches played in England (T20Is)
  • England have won 14 of their last 23 matches against New Zealand (T20Is)
  • New Zealand have lost 4 of their last 5 completed matches played in England (T20Is)
  • New Zealand have lost both matches they played at this venue against England (T20Is)

Head to Head


There have been 24 T20Is now between England and New Zealand with England winning 14 and losing eight. They have a formidable record at this venue, winning both previous T20Is against New Zealand.

England Form


England’s rejigged squad took little time to settle and restricted the Kiwis to a below-par target of 140. It was the debutante Brydon Carse who enjoyed a great outing with figures of 3 for 23.

There are wickets for Luke Wood too who took a three-wicket haul, and England almost pushed New Zealand out of the equation at the half-way stage itself.

With the bat, Dawid Malan (54) and Harry Brook (43) made sure there are no hiccups in the smaller chase, achieving the target in 14 overs.

England Team News


England have no real reason to change their winning XI unless someone gets injured.

New Zealand Form


New Zealand played a couple of warm-up matches to get ready for the series, which leaves them with no excuses for the performance on Wednesday.

Only two batters scored more than 20, with Glenn Phillips being their top-scorer with 41. They needed quick wickets to make the small target count, and the Kiwis did manage to snare that of Jonny Bairstow.

From there on, it was the Brook – Malan show as they clinically dismantled the entire Kiwi bowling. That left the visitors with a lot of questions and very little time to address.

New Zealand Team News


New Zealand may be tempted to bench one of the ‘keepers in the playing XI and get an extra batter in Rachin Ravindra.

Verdict

England’s complete domination of the first T20I shows that the visitors have a lot of ground to cover. New Zealand do not have a wealth of match winners in this squad, while England are blessed to have a team full of those. It is going to be yet another long evening for the Kiwis. I am backing England to win this match.
