About the Match

New Zealand took a 1-0 lead in the 5-match ODI series against England as they defeated the visitors by 3 wickets in a comfortable manner in the first match. Both teams will lock horns with each other in the 2nd ODI at Mt. Maunganui on 28th February. While the Kiwis are exuberant after their victory and will try to dominate the English again, the latter will be determined to make a comeback and repeat their winning performance which saw them conquer the Aussies at the beginning of their tour. It needs to be seen if the hosts can continue with their winning momentum or if England can bounce back on Wednesday.

Match Preview

New Zealand

The bowling unit combined well to stifle the English to 284 runs in the first match; Trent Boult used his pace power to dismiss 2 opponents while spinners Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi claimed 2 wickets each. Colin Munro showcased his all-rounder skills to take one wicket but couldn’t contribute with the bat. They have other experienced players like Tim Southee and Colin de Grandhomme who contained the opponent’s run-flow and add depth to the attack.

Chasing 285, middle-order batsman Ross Taylor scored a brilliant 113 off 116 to steer the team towards a win after the openers failed to build a good foundation. Tom Latham posted 79 runs while Santner pitched in with the bat too, scoring an unbeaten 45 off 27 balls. Others like Williamson, Nicholls, Guptill, and Grandhomme couldn’t impress with the bat and succumbed to the English pace attack.

The Kiwis managed to win the first match after a determined middle-order batting performance, but they will be cautious here against the English bowlers, who managed to topple the top order batsmen. Overall, the hosts have exhibited a deep batting unit which could prove to be a challenge again.

New Zealand Starting Lineup

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Mark Chapman, Ross Taylor, TWM Latham, Henry Nicholls, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, TG Southee, Lockie Ferguson, TA Boult.

England

Players like Jason Roy, Joe Root, and Jos Buttler tried their best to build a strong innings, but they could muster only 284 runs in the end. While Root and Buttler scored 70+ runs each, Roy missed his half-century narrowly by 1 run. All-rounder bowler Moeen Ali pitched in with 28 runs but his late efforts weren’t enough to get them to a challenging total.

Making a comeback into the ODI squad, pacer Ben Stokes delivered to perfection, taking 2-43 in 8 overs while speedster Chris Woakes, Tom Curran, and all-rounder David Willey took 4 wickets between them to cause upsets in the opposition. Spinner Adil Rashid also took 1 wicket in an economical manner but they didn’t have enough to fight with and win the match.

The bowlers are in good form to yet again stifle the Kiwis, but they need to strategize well and recreate the magic that helped them win their last nine bilateral ODI series. With an all-around performance in all departments of the game, England could prove to be a formidable force to reckon with.

England Starting Lineup

JJ Roy, Jonny Bairstow, JE Root, Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, BA Stokes, CR Woakes, Jos Buttler, AU Rashid, David Willey, Tom Curran.

Our Prediction

As the venue shifts to Mt. Maunganui, we could see the English batsmen come out with some aggression on Wednesday to dominate the hosts. However, with the home advantage to their side, New Zealand can prove to be a tough team to crack yet again. With more firepower at the top of the order, England are likely to bounce back and make a statement here at Mt. Maunganui.
