Abu Dhabi: The New Zealand bowlers have shown their ability to restrict England’s opponent for just 166 runs, taking 4 crucial wickets to hurt the entire team.

It is the responsibility of the team to contribute 51 runs in 37 balls over Moeen Ali. David Malan also contributed a lot to the total by scoring 41 runs with the help of five fours.

New Zealand will take on England to avenge their 2019 ODI World Cup loss in the most prestigious international in history.

The Kiwi team heaved a sigh of relief when England batsman Jos Buttler was dismissed for just 29 runs.

It didn’t take long for spinner Ish Sodhi to send Butler back on the first ball of his second over.

Adam Milne initially outplayed his English opponent as he sent back the opener for only 13 runs off his first ball.

Bairstow came to the crease with Jos Buttler as Jason Roy was ruled out of the game against South Africa due to injury.

The opening partnership scored 37 runs before the loss of wickets after 5.1 overs. Bairstow leaned into a cover drive to play Milne, sliding this flat towards cover, where Williamson dives further to the left to pick it up.
