England vs New Zealand – England faces a tough test against New Zealand in the 33rd game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. The rain delay against Australia has complicated matters for the team, which had previously lost to Ireland. New Zealand has looked like one of the tournament’s best teams. They come in with a huge win over Sri Lanka.
England will feel the heat following their poor performance against Ireland. Their batters and bowlers have struggled on these hard and bouncy wickets because they have been out of form. Both games were easily won by New Zealand. These are the world’s two best teams, and the game will be intense.
The Super 12 Group 1, 33rd Match between England vs New Zealand will take place on November 1st, 2022 at The Gabba, Brisbane.
Match Details to Note
Match: England vs New Zealand, 33rd Match, Super 12 Group 1, ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022
Date: November 01, 2022 (Tuesday)
Time: 1:30 PM IST
Venue: The Gabba, Brisbane
The team led by Jos Buttler cannot afford to lose this game. Rain forced the cancellation of their previous game against Australia. They have three points after three games, which they share with two other teams in the group. A victory here would keep them in contention for a spot in the next round. The Kiwis will be difficult to beat, and Buttler will be expecting a strong performance from his team.
New Zealand’s new ball bowlers are in good form, so Alex Hales and Buttler must get off to a good start. They have middle-order firepower, and runs from Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, and Liam Livingstone should put them in a good position. This batting lineup is bolstered by Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, and Chris Woakes.
Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes must strike early, as New Zealand’s top order has performed admirably in recent games. In the middle overs, the team would like to see good spells from Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, and Mark Wood. Curran adds variety to this attack, making it powerful.
Jos Buttler(w/c), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Chris Jordan, David Willey, Tymal Mills, Philip Salt
Players to watch out for:
The right-handed keeper-battler has 50 runs in 18 innings in this format, including a 65-run knock against Australia two innings ago.
England’s left-handed number three batter has a best score of 103 not out in T20Is. He almost never throws away his wicket and gradually increases his strike rate as his innings progress.
The 32 year old right-arm fast bowler has a strike rate of 13.7 in this format. In his last five competitive games, he has taken 14 wickets.
Possible Playing XI:
Jos Buttler (c & wk), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood
Kane Williamson’s side leads the points table after a convincing 65-run victory over Sri Lanka. They had already defeated Australia by a large margin and appeared to be in top form. Their batting lineup has performed admirably, and the team will hope to continue in this vein. Williamson hopes to win this game and advance to the next round.
Devon Conway has performed well in the tournament and will look to provide an exciting start with Finn Allen. Glenn Phillips arrives with a hundred runs under his belt and must forge middle-order partnerships with Williamson and Darryl Mitchell. James Neesham and Mitchell Santner can provide quick runs and help the team’s batting.
Trent Boult and Tim Southee bowled well together in the previous game. They’d try to bowl a big burst of fire with the new ball. Lockie Ferguson needs to bowl better lines than he has in the past. As England has clean hitters, the side would also expect a strong performance from Ish Sodhi and Santner.
Finn Allen, Devon Conway(w), Kane Williamson(c), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, Martin Guptill, Adam Milne, Michael Bracewell, Mark Chapman
Players to watch out for:
The left-handed opener had an uncharacteristic one run from four balls in the previous game, but he still has a 54.42 average in this format.
Glenn Phillips scored his second T20I century against Sri Lanka. In his 104 runs from 64 balls, he hit 14 boundaries.
Trent Boult, 33, bowled out Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, and Dasun Shanaka on Saturday in the T20 World Cup 2022.
Possible Playing XI:
Kane Williamson (c), Finn Allen, Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, Daryl Mitchell, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
England vs New Zealand Top Team Batsmen
With the bat, we recommend Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, and Dawid Malan for England. Buttler is capable of attacking from the first ball of the innings and has a high chance of leading England in scoring. In this format, Hales has a total of 111 half-centuries.
Our batting picks for New Zealand are Devon Conway, Finn Allen, and Glenn Phillips. Conway has an incredible average across all three international formats, and the bookmakers predict he will be New Zealand’s leading scorer. Allen has a best T20I score of 101.
England vs New Zealand Top Team Bowlers
Our bowling selections for England are Mark Wood, Sam Curran, and Adil Rashid. With the rain giving Wood some extra time off, it’s no surprise that he’s the bookies’ favorite to be England’s top bowler. Curran is the only player in the competition to have taken a five-wicket haul.
We believe Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, and Tim Southee will carry the ball for New Zealand. Ferguson will enjoy the fast surface, and the bookmakers see him as a risk. Southee has a total of 4-18 from his first two matches this season.
England vs New Zealand Head to Head
Although England leads the all-time series 12-8, New Zealand has only lost one of the last five meetings. Their most recent meeting was in the 2021 T20 World Cup Semi-Final, which New Zealand won by five wickets.

England vs New Zealand Toss Prediction
There is a chance of heavy rain and a cloud overcast during the game. The team batting second would have an advantage in this scenario. We anticipate that the captain who wins the toss will invite the opposition to bat first.
England vs New Zealand Pitch Report
The Gabba in Brisbane has been a fantastic T20 venue, with several high-scoring games. Unlike larger Australian grounds, the smaller venue allows batsmen to hit the ball in the air. Fast bowlers have always preferred to bowl on this surface. There isn’t much on this surface for spinners, so they must concentrate on containing opponents.
Rain and thunderstorms are expected in Brisbane on November 1. Batting conditions would be difficult because the ball would move during the game. Given the conditions, the side batting first would aim for a score of 160 runs, which would immediately put pressure on the opponents.
England vs New Zealand Prediction
When two of the best teams square off, we know we’re in for a tense and entertaining match. New Zealand has yet to lose in this tournament, whereas England is eager to get back on track after losing to Ireland and receiving a no-result against Australia. Overall, we believe England will win a close game. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
England is the favourite to beat New Zealand at the odds of 1.65.
England vs New Zealand Most Recommended Player for Bet:
