Abu Dhabi: New Zealand has a rocky start of their innings as they lost the opening wicket on the third ball with just 4 runs. 

Kiwis skipper could not make a difference as Chris Woakes made him leave the wickets with just 5 runs.  

Black Caps have gathered 36 runs in the power play losing 2 wickets against England in the T20 World Cup semi-final. Chris Woakes strikes both the wickets for England with a maiden over against New Zealand. 

Kiwis bowlers showed their caliber to restrict the English opponent for just 166 runs taking 4 significant wickets hurting the team throughout. 

Moeen Ali shouldered the responsibility of the team to contribute 51 runs in 37 balls. David Malan also made a major contribution to the total, scoring 41 runs with five boundaries.

New Zealand will take on England to revenge their 2019 ODI World Cup defeat in the most iconic international of history. Kiwis had a sigh of relief when English batsman Jos Butler departed early with just 29 runs. 

Spinner Ish Sodhi did not take long to send Buttler back on the first ball of his second over.  Bairstow had walked to the crease with Jos Buttler as Jason Roy was ruled out of the game due to an injury he suffered against South Africa.

The opening partnership garnered 37 runs before the loss of the wicket after 5.1 overs. Bairstow leaned into a cover drive to play Milne, crunching this flat towards cover, where Williamson dived to the left and forward to take this.
