Here are the Fantasy Cricket Predictions and Betting Tips for the 2nd T20I Match of New Zealand Tour of England which will be played on 1st of September at the Old Trafford, Manchester.
Current Form New Zealand and England:
England have won the first T20I match by 7 wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the T20I series.
The top run scorer for England in the T20I series is Dawid Malan with 54 runs to his name.
The top wicket taker for England in the T20I series is Brydon Carse with 3 scalps under his belt.
The top run scorer for New Zealand in the T20I series is Glenn Phillips with 43 runs to his name.
The top wicket taker for New Zealand in the T20I series is Tim Southee with 1 scalp under his belt.
In the first T20I, New Zealand batted first and they posted a modest total of 139 for 9 in 20 overs. Finn Allen gave the visitors a brilliant start by smashing 3 sixes of the Luke Wood's first over. However, things were never the same afterwards. New Zealand kept losing wickets at regular intervals and despite a fighting knock of 41 by Glenn Phillips, the rest of the middle order batters couldn't bat long and fast enough to take New Zealand to a decent total. As a result, they had to settle down for a paltry 139 on board in 20 overs of play.
During the chase, England lost Jonny Bairstow quite early. After his dismissal, Will Jacks and Dawid Malan took complete control of the match. They scored 22 and 54 runs respectively to seal the match in favor of England. Harry Brook provided the needed impetus into the innings by smashing 43 off 27 balls. He stayed not out and took his team home in the 14th over itself with 7 wickets in hand.
