England vs New Zealand on September 15


England will be up against New Zealand in the 4th ODI match of the New Zealand Tour of England at the Lord's in London on September 15. The series is led by England, with two wins from three matches. New Zealand would be looking forward to winning this match and making a draw to the series. The last match of the series between these two teams was played at the Kennington Oval in London, where New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl. England did not start well, losing their first wicket on a duck, and soon the second wicket followed. When England looked in trouble came their Superman, who is now used to playing sensational match-winning knocks for them. Ben Stokes played a mammoth inning of 182 runs, which is the highest ever by an English player, and helped England put up a total of 368 runs. The chase of 369 was never going to be easy for any team in the world and to go anywhere near that total. New Zealand had to make a great start, which they unfortunately could not. They lost their first wicket at the score of 18 and kept losing wickets one after the other. Only Glenn Phillips could play a good knock of 76 runs, but he did not get any good partnerships from the other end, and New Zealand was bowled out for a mere total of 187 runs, losing the match by a huge margin of 181 runs.

Best economical pick – Liam Livingstone has been playing a pivotal role for the English team. He has scored 158 runs while picking up three wickets in the last three matches.

Top captains & vice captains Coming in the middle order, Ben Stokes was at his lethal best for England in the last game against the Kiwis, as he slammed 182 off mere 124 balls. His knock featured 15 fours and nine maximums at a stunning strike rate of 146.7. Stokes will be eager to replicate a similar performance in the forthcoming game and help his side win the contest. The speedster Trent Boult was quite menacing with the ball in his last outing as he claimed a magnificent five-wicket haul for just 51 runs in his 9.1 overs. He will look to play a vital role with the ball in the upcoming game to keep his side ahead in the match.

Smart pick – Jos Buttler has scored 140 runs at a strike rate of 119.66, playing three matches in the series. He has been excellent with his glovework as well and can fetch you hefty points.

Cautious Pick – Tom Latham has not been able to impact the games much in this series and should not find a place in your team.

My XI – Ben Stokes (Captain), Trent Boult (Vice-Captain), Liam Livingstone, Jos Buttler, Daryl Mitchell, Dawid Malan, Devon Conway, Reece Topley, Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Sam Curran
