ENG vs NZ 4th T20I Match Prediction & Analysis

New Zealand easily defeated England at Edgbaston thanks to a significantly improved team performance, bringing the series’ current standing to 1-2 with one game remaining. A kind of retaliation for Tim Southee’s team following their 95-run loss at Old Trafford in the second T20I, the losing margin of 74 runs was one of the largest defeats England had suffered in T20Is. This outcome also gave New Zealand the opportunity to attempt an equalizing victory at Trent Bridge on Tuesday.


England Preview

England’s third T20I performance was poor and a far cry from their former dominant performances. They first permitted New Zealand to score 202-5 on a pitch that was favorable to quick bowlers. After then, they stopped pursuing and were taken out for just 128. Only the captain, Jos Buttler, had an impact, scoring a brilliant 40 off just 21 balls.

However, the home team won’t be overly alarmed by that performance and will simply chalk it up to a bad day at work. After all, this is currently among the best T20 cricket batting teams.

Of course, their primary batter to watch out for this time is Jos Buttler. He has now scored 371 runs at an average of 53 and a strike rate of 152 in his previous 10 games.

The player of the season for England is Harry Brook, who has scored 149 runs in his previous seven games at an average of over 30 and a strike rate of 146. Although Brook struggled in the previous game, he has been in excellent form, thus we can anticipate another outstanding performance from him.

Jonny Bairstow had struggled in this series twice, but once he found his groove, he went on to score an incredible unbeaten 86. In this series, he has served as the team’s opener, and we are counting on him to perform well in the last T20I.

In terms of bowling, England can find encouragement in the strong performance of its up-and-coming new ball bowlers, Gus Atkinson and Luke Wood. Although they are both inexperienced and young, they have bowled with a lot of emotion. Chris Jordan has been outstanding at the death as usual, but England’s spinners need to perform better since they have been severely battered.

England predicted XI:

Jos Buttler (c & wk), Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Luke Wood, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Will Jacks, Dawid Malan, Harry Brook

New Zealand Preview

In the third T20I, New Zealand amassed a commanding total of 202-5 because to Glenn Phillips’ lightning-quick 27-ball half-century and Finn Allen’s explosive 83 off 58 deliveries. After that, England’s pursuit collapsed on a tiresome pitch, with each bowler making a significant contribution.

Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner, a spin duo, recorded superb combined statistics of 4 for 53 from seven overs, in sharp contrast to Adil Rashid and Liam Livingstone’s ineffective 1 for 98 from eight overs.

With each game, Kyle Jamieson is getting better-looking. The tall, fast bowler, who had figures of 3-23 from 4 overs, is gradually finding his rhythm again after a protracted injury layoff. Tim Southee, the captain, also took the initiative by capturing two wickets for 30 runs in 3.3 overs.

With Matt Henry bowling efficiently, Jamieson returning to form, and the spinners among the wickets, this Kiwi bowling attack suddenly appears to be much better.

Devon Conway or Tim Seifert will be looked to by New Zealand to rise to the occasion and leave a lasting impression. Although both have been out of runs in this series, they have recently been crucial to the team’s batting unit.

New Zealand predicted XI:

Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee (c), Matt Henry, Ish Sodhi, Glenn Phillips, Devon Conway, Tim Seifert (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Mitchell Santner, and Kyle Jamieson

Weather Conditions

For T20 cricket, Trent Bridge often provides a surface that is favorable for batting. The pitch often favors strokeplay and high-scoring contests since it is flat and accurate. Big hits are encouraged here because of the pace and bounce that are available to batters. Fast bowlers can benefit from the surface’s good bounce, especially in the beginning. The seam may move as a result, surprising the batters. Batters may experience issues when pacers expertly blend their lengths.

Nottingham will see quite warm, clear, and pleasant weather.

Venue Details

At Trent Bridge, batting first results in an average score of 165. The highest score recorded there was 232-6 by Pakistan versus England in 2021. We may anticipate another high-scoring match because this game averages 8.09 runs per over. A total of roughly 190 runs would be the goal for the team batting first.

Toss: To Bat

In eight of Trent Bridge’s 13 T20 International matches, the team batting first has prevailed. In the last T20I, the toss-winning team will almost probably choose to bat first in an effort to get a high total given the clear weather prediction.

Winning Prediction

England will Win this Match

England will have the advantage in this encounter despite their defeat in the third T20I. Although their batting may have struggled in the last game, they are simply too strong and will probably bounce back strongly. The main drawback for England is their inexperienced new ball bowling attack, which the New Zealand hitters will continue to target. New Zealand should put on another impressive batting display on this favorable batting surface. We believe England won’t make the same mistake twice, and their batting prowess will enable them to win the series.
