Series: New Zealand vs England
Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington
Date: November 2, 2019
Time: 6:30 a.m. IST
New Zealand would be looking to square the series when they lock horns with visitors England in the second T20I of the series at Wellington on Sunday. The hosts suffered a seven-wicket loss at the hands of the visitors in the previous match. While there were some decent performances with the bat from the likes of Ross Taylor and Tim Seifert, a total of 150-odd was always going to be par on a batting track. New Zealand's bowling lacked bite too, Mitchell Santner was the one who picked up all three of England's wickets. England, on the other hand, would be more than happy with their performance. The bowling unit did an excellent job and batsmen like Jonny Bairstow and skipper Eoin Morgan himself contributed on either side of James Vince's fifty. So their confidence would be high after such a fine performance and New Zealand will need to dish out their best if they want to make a comeback.
A bright and sunny weather awaits with the temperature ranging around the low 20s.
Wellington has always been a good batting venue with the average first innings total ranging between 175 and 180. The short boundaries favour the batsmen as well. Chasing teams don't have a very good record in T20Is at this venue as they have lost 75 percent of
