New Zealand vs England 2019 schedule: Complete time-table, when and where to watch, live streaming and telecast details
These two teams had last met in the final of the ICC World Cup, where England beat New Zealand via the boundary count rule. The Kiwis will look to the avenge that loss with a strong performance in the upcoming series.
The Black Caps had recently toured Sri Lanka, where they drew the Test series before winning the two-match T20I series 2-1. On the other hand, England failed to recapture the Ashes at home as the five-match Test series with Australia ended in a stalemate.
Both New Zealand and England will play a lot of T20I matches over the next few months, leading up to the ICC T20 World Cup 2020. The five T20Is will provide plenty of practice to both the teams as they aim to pull off a solid performance next year in Australia.
The hosts will miss the services of their skipper Kane Williamson in the T20I series as he is nursing a hip injury. Instead, Tim Southee will lead the New Zealand side against Eoin Morgan’s men.
As the grounds in New Zealand have relatively shorter boundaries, expect the likes of Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Billings to light up the pitch with their fireworks.
Here is the complete schedule of England’s tour of New Zealand 2019.
