PITCH & CONDITION
Weather : The weather forecast in Napier on match day is good. There are almost no chances of rain and we may have a full match to watch.
Pitch : Napier’s McLean Park could see some big scores, as one of the premier batting wickets in world cricket.This venue has a shorter boundary so we may see plenty of fours and sixes.
New Zealand : After losing the first T20, the New Zealand side got its momentum back. They won the third match with a margin of 14 runs. Now they are leading this T20 series with 2-1. If they win this match, they will also win the series.
Opening bowler Trent Boult is back with the squad for the fourth T20i, after being left out for the first three games to rest and focus on first-class domestic commitments. Lockie Ferguson is the man to make way. Blair Tickner replaced Daryl Mitchell last time out, meanwhile, and could keep his place after bowling well.
New Zealand Squad : Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Tim Seifert (wk), Ross Taylor, Colin de Grandhomme, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Southee (c), Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, James Neesham, Blair Tickner.
England : England had lost previous both matches and now the upcoming both matches are must-win matches for them. In the previous match their bowling unit almost failed to give their hundred percent performance. The batting order of England also failed to perform well. They could manage to score 166 runs while chasing 181 runs on the board.
Jordan could come in for Saqib Mahmood this time, however, while Bairstow may be selected behind the stumps ahead of Sam Billings. There are plenty of options for rotation still.
England Squad : Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, James Vince, Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings (wk), Sam Curran, Lewis Gregory, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Patrick Brown, Tom Banton, Matthew Parkinson, Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood.
England had lost two previous matches but there is no doubt that they are strong team and have the ability to beat New Zealand.
