New Zealand buried the ghosts of the 2019 ODI World Cup, beating England in another World Cup thriller at the T20 World Cup 2021. A match that seemed to be going England’s way, AGAIN, was pulled back by some scintillating hitting by James Neesham and then the hero of the day – Daryll Mitchell.
Kane Williamson’s team makes its 3rd consecutive ICC trophy final in 3 years across formats. They will know their opponents tonight after what is expected to be another thriller between Pakistan and Australia.
