ENG vs NZ 4th T20 Dream11 Team Prediction and Preview
Hello and welcome to our ENG vs NZ Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview and Dream11 Tips of the 4th T20. New Zealand and England will face-off at McLean Park in Napier.
After losing to the visitors in the first T20I, Kiwis have bounced back perfectly defeating them by 21 runs and 14 runs in the next two matches. Trent Boult returns to the side resting Lockie Ferguson while England will continue their experimentation for the upcoming T20I World Cup.
In the last match, Blackcaps gave a target of 181 runs with the help of brilliant knocks of 55 and 33 runs from Grandhomme and Guptill. Ross Taylor, Neesham and Santner also made handy contributions in the target. Curran brothers bowled good spells taking three scalps among them.
Chasing the target, Debutant Banton gave an attacking start to the team scoring 18 runs in just 10 balls while Dawid Malan and James Vince anchored the innings scoring 55 and 49 runs respectively. However, the lower middle order failed to combat the challenge and ultimately was left behind by 14 runs. Lockie Ferguson and Blair Tickner took two wicket-hauls to ensure successful target defense.
Kiwis will hope to seal the series tomorrow while England will be eager to bounce back and postpone the series decider to the fifth and final T20I.
