The 4th match of the five-match T20I series on the England tour of New Zealand will be played at the McLean Park in Napier.


With New Zealand's 14-run win in the 3rd T20I at Nelson, they lead the five-match series 2-1 and another win will help them take an unassailable lead.

James Vince and Dawid Malan have been the top scorers for England in the series till now with 109 and 105 runs respectively. Both, though, would like to improve upon their strike rate which is in the 130s and take it over 140 to have a real impact over the series.

For New Zealand, Colin de Grandhomme has been promoted at number 4 and has delivered with 102 runs from 3 games, including his top score of 55 in the last match which came at the strike rate of 157.14.

Mitchell Santner picked up three wickets-hauls in the first two T20Is but could not prove effective in the last one. Blair Tickner has been particularly impressive for New Zealand and is a very bright prospect for them for the T20 World Cup.

Chris Jordan has starred for England with 5 wickets from 2 games. Tom Curran looked good in the last game and so did his brother Sam. Saqib Mahmood has been quite expensive and has not been able to make the most of the opportunities he has got and might have to make way for this game.

Trent Boult will replace Lockie Ferguson for the remaining two games of the series.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

New Zealand- Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert, Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult, Blair Tickner

England- Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Eoin Morgan,  Sam Curran, Lewis Gregory, Chris Jordan, Matthew Parkinson, Tom Curran, Patrick Brown
