The first semi-final of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 will be played today at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, between New Zealand and England.

England will be stepping on the ground today as the favorites against Kiwis, two years after both sides clashed in a dramatic 50-over final. Tune in to UrduPoint for ball-by-ball action of the entire game.

England’s aggressive cricket helped them gain victory against West Indies, Bangladesh, Australia and Sri Lanka with clinical ease to finish as group leaders ahead of the Australia. Although they have performed quite well in the tournament, there match with the Kiwis would a tough one as the later have only lost one match against Pakistan and gained victory in all others.

 

Moreover, it is a great opportunity for New Zealand to even the score after the dramatic loss they faced back in 2019 ODI World Cup final against England. It took England a super over to edge out Kane Williamson’s side in the final.

“If England and New Zealand provide a fraction of the drama they did on a glorious afternoon at Lord’s in July 2019, then the T20 World Cup might get the spark it desperately craves this week,” former England captain Mike Atherton wrote in The Times.

England have reached the final four of the T20 World Cup without star performers Stokes and Jofra Archer and Roy’s departure adds to their woes ahead of today’s game in Abu Dhabi.
