England vs New Zealand T20 World Cup semifinal: Head-to-head, leading run scorer, highest wicket taker and other records
New Zealand and England will renew their rivalry in T20Is when the two teams lock horns for the first semi-final of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 at Sheik Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
England would be wanting to beat New Zealand as they eye a second successive T20 World Cup final spot. New Zealand on their part will be itching for revenge and banish the horrors of the 50-over World Cup final.
England have enjoyed a great T20 World Cup thus far. The 2010 T20 World Cup champions started their campaign well as they beat West Indies, Bangladesh, Australia and Sri Lanka. England's only loss in this World Cup was in their final group game against South Africa. Opener Jos Buttler has been one of the star performers, as he has scored 240 runs, the most runs for England by a batter. Leg spinner Adil Rashid has been Eoin Morgan's strike bowler and has picked 8 wickets in the tournament so far.
While England kept stealing the world's attention with their stylish brand of T20 cricket, New Zealand went about quietly with their calm and methodical approach paving the way to yet another semi-final appearance in an ICC event.
The Kane Williamson-led side stumbled in their first match of the tournament against a strong Pakistani side. But the Blackcaps bounced back as they took down India, Scotland, Namibia and Afghanistan to book a semi-final date with England. Veteran Martin Guptill has been the team's leading run-scorer with 176 runs.  Trent Boult has led the bowling attack picking  11 wickets.
The match at the Sheik Zayed Stadium promises to be a mouth-watering one. As the battle lines are drawn, here is a look at all the head-to-head records from all the England-New Zealand T20I matches from the past.
