Riding high on confidence ahead of the crucial semi-final match against England, New Zealand captain Kane Williams has said that the Kiwis are waiting for another match in this year’s T20 World Cup after the semis.
This is a clear indication of the Kiwis confidence to make it to the T20 final.
The semi-final game will take place on Wednesday at 8pm Bangladesh time. New Zealand have lost only one match against Pakistan in the Super 12 stage. They won four of the five matches.
“We are so excited about the semi-final,” Williams said. “Anything can happen. We have a few players who can win the match for us, and England also have some players who can win for them. We are waiting to get another match in this year’s T20 World Cup after the semi-final.”
New Zealand have the least defeats among the teams who have played 40 or more T20I matches in the last three years.
“In the recent past, we have played some memorable matches. Now are looking forward to something bigger,” Williams said.
England and New Zealand locked horns in the final of the 2019 World Cup at Lord’s that New Zealand lost by boundary count -- a law that ICC scrapped recently from their playing condition.
New Zealand and England faced each other in 21 T20Is, and England won 12 of them. In contrast, New Zealand won seven, one was tied and another match had no result.
