England will lock horns with New Zealand in the first semi-final match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021. The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will host the knockout clash between the two sides.
England finished atop the Super 12 Group 1 points table with eight points, having won four out of their five matches. The Kiwis, on the other hand, finished second in the Super 12 Group 2 table with eight points from as many games.
The former side lost their only game against South Africa while the Black Caps lost against Pakistan during the group stage matches.
England will be in deep trouble, having lost the services of Jason Roy, who sustained an injury while batting against South Africa. Meanwhile, New Zealand is heading into this game with all players available for selection. However, their top and middle-order batters will have to contribute if they look to make it to the final.
