As both sides have test their bench strength, the series moves to beautiful Napier.

Given that both sides are trying new players a year out from the World T20, the series result itself might not be the be-all-and-end-all. However, England have taken plenty of pride in their limited-overs record over the past few years. Can they get the better of New Zealand this time, after letting the game slip in Nelson?

Key to a New Zealand win

Martin Guptill has threatened but hasn’t quite carried on. Colin Munro has barely made an impact. Munro divides opinion due to the potential he provides at the top of the order, but he must start delivering to become a reliable option. Despite the 2-1 lead, New Zealand have often found themselves two or three down early. Something to avoid in this clash.

A strong platform at the top paves the way for Colin de Grandhomme to cause even more damage. His 35-ball 55 swung the game in his team’s favour in Nelson, and if he comes in with a platform set, he and the likes of Ross Taylor and James Neesham will be tough to handle.

NZ vs ENG 4th T20I Preview Dream11: CDG has been superb at number four.

Also, New Zealand’s fight with the ball in their two wins has been cause for optimism. On a good pitch in Nelson, their total of 180 was somewhat middling. However, their bowlers, even with the spinners expensive, rallied to snatch victory. Can Tim Southee and Blair Tickner (this time with Trent Boult back) repeat their great efforts?

Key to an England win

Like Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan has looked threatening without going on to make a substantial score. With Tom Banton a great prospect, along with the runs Dawid Malan is producing, a strong score from Morgan puts England in a very strong position.

In a must-win game, the onus is on the experience of Morgan to shepherd a middle-late order that crumbled in Nelson.

Also, England, without Chris Jordan, produced a pretty solid bowling display last time out. Jordan could be back for this clash, giving England crucial experience in both powerplay and death overs. Given the spinners could struggle on the flat McLean Park track, the seamers, like NZ did in Nelson, have a huge role to play.
