England and New Zealand have had several memorable battles in all formats in recent years and once again there is a lot at stake when the two sides face off at the Brisbane cricket ground on Tuesday morning.

The Three Lions are famous for triumphing in the most incredible World Cup final at 50 in 2019, but Kane Williamson and his Black Caps roared in the semi-finals of the 2021 T20 World Cup, chasing 167 with a over to save before losing to Australia in the final.

Now they face off again in Group 1 of the 2022 T20 World Cup in what is now a must-have game for England partly because of their own failures but also because of the bad Australian weather which has spoiled the Super 12 stage of the tournament.

Jos Buttler’s men opened their World Cup campaign with a five-wicket triumph over Afghanistan in Perth before the weather gods intervened in their next two matches – a five-point DLS loss to Ireland and a wash against Australia.

England will have considered themselves unfortunate to have lost to Ireland – they are batting deep and Moeen Ali were just starting to stand out when the rain fell. But in truth, they played badly and the batting order struggled like it did against Afghanistan.

They have three points from as many matches but another defeat at the Gabba against New Zealand will almost certainly end their semi-final hopes.

With a win as a necessity, the money came for England, who went from 8-11 to 8-13. They deserve to be favorites given the quality of their ranks, but the prices have arguably swung too far in their direction, with New Zealand looking an attractive proposition at 13-8.

The Kiwis topped Group 1 on Sunday night and made no mistake in the tournament, hammering Australia by 89 points and rushing to a 65-point triumph over Sri Lanka in two matches in Sydney from either side of a CWM washout. against Afghanistan.

England’s high-powered batting order has failed so far, while Devon Conway (92 not against Australia) and Glenn Phillips, who hit 104 against the Lankans, have produced performances fantastic individuals for the Black Caps.

Buttler, in particular, has yet to start and with Kiwis first bowlers Tim Southee and Trent Boult both fully fit, the underdogs could help seal England’s fate before they face Sri Lanka. in Saturday’s Group 1 final.

Ahead of England’s date with fate, bottom two Sri Lanka and Afghanistan form the first part of Gabba’s double-header in the early hours of Tuesday morning with the Lankan favorites to win victory.

Although they found New Zealand too strong, they had already passed Ireland and were competitive against the Aussies before an onslaught from Marcus Stoinis took the game away from them.

They should pick up the win and mid-ranked batsman Charith Asalanka, who went in three useful innings in the 30s in this tournament, looks too expensive to top his batting card at 6-1.
