Pallekele: Sep 29, 2012

 

Defedning champions England take on New Zealand in the Super Eights clash of World T20 at Pallekele on Saturday

 

Handed contrasting but demoralising defeats in their opening Super Eight matches, England and New Zealand would look for resurrection when they face off in what is likely to be an even contest at the World Twenty20 on Friday.

 

England were done in by the all-round brilliance of Chris Gayle as they lost by 15 runs to the West Indies, while New Zealand were stunned in the Super Over even though they came close to a victory in regulation play itself, reported Press Trust of India.

 

A distinct flaw in both teams’ approach has been the tendency to leave it for too late, something that is suicidal in the Twenty20 format.

 

For New Zealand, their top order showed fine form with openers Rob Nicol and Martin Guptill and number three Brendon McCullum coming good with the bat. It is the lower order that hasn’t quite clicked, including experienced all-rounder Jacob Oram. 

 

Teams

 

England: Craig Kieswetter (wk), Alex Hales, Luke Wright, Jonathan Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad (c), Graeme Swann, Danny Briggs, Steven Finn.

New Zealand: Rob Nicol, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum (wk), Ross Taylor (c), James Franklin, Kane Williamson, Nathan McCullum, Doug Bracewell, Daniel Vettori, Tim Southee, Kyle Mills.
