New Zealand surprised England by taking first place in the T20 World Cup decider after an impressive semi-final win.
First bowling Black Caps were able to limit the ODI World Champs to four wickets for 166 runs – best with a Moeen Ali 51.
In response – the Kiwis lost two quick wickets, including captain Kane Williamson.
But when the innings were fixed, the match was swayed by Jimmy Neesham, who carried his stick with 72 wins, and opening Daryl Mitchell.
New Zealand have claimed five wickets by 57 runs in the last four rounds – taking some revenge after losing the 2019 ODI World Cup final to England in heartbreaking conditions.
Black Caps are now one win away from claiming pieces of history.
Australia will play Pakistan in the other semi-finals late Thursday night and early Friday morning for a chance to play New Zealand in the T20 World Cup decider.
