Watch England vs New Zealand, ICC T20 World Cup 2016, semi-finals live streaming video link

New Zealand cricket team has always amazed the world with its performance in cricket. A small nation of just less than five million people has always been among the best cricket teams in the world.

And if anyone needed any proof of their achievements, their scintillating performance in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2016 is enough to silent one and all.

When they came into the tournament, many had some doubts about the team as the person who had led them for a long time, Brendon McCullum , had just retired from the game. Before retirement he had said clearly that he will not reconsider his retirement. Many wondered how the team will perform in his absence.cricket icc world t20

Now after a fortnight of endless cricket during the tournament, while all teams have tested the defeat, New Zealand remains the only team in the tournament that has not been beaten. New Zealand has beaten all the teams in their groups including the hosts India, Australia, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Now the team is set to play against England, in the first semi final of the tournament.

While England have played some good cricket, but their good performance was mostly due to some individual performances of a few players. On the contrary, New Zealand team played as a team beating almost every team with huge difference.

A Cricinfo report while praising the New Zealand team says, “Where other teams have looked upon surfaces and made vague guesses at how they might play, New Zealand have read pitches like a soothsayer would tea leaves. Empowered by this clairvoyance they have picked boldly: three spinners to embarrass the hosts in turning Nagpur, Mitchell McClenaghan to rattle Australia in Dharamsala, Adam Milne proving handy in relatively quicker Mohali, before the trio of spinners were reunited for slow-and-low Kolkata”.

The excellent team performance has stumped people, more so as they have not played in this part of the world for almost two years. New Zealand had not played in Asia since late 2014, but they are here at the semi-finals now; the only undefeated side. They have not just been clever with the ball. Batting first in each group match, competitive scores have been worked out and achieved. Kane Williamson has been described by team-mates as a “great captain”. Behind the scenes, Mike Hesson’s wit has sharpened New Zealand.

If you are eager to watch the match live, it is available on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 3 from 7.30pm IST. Live online coverage is available on starsports.com and on mobile via the Star Sports apps, which can be downloaded for iOS, Android and Windows mobiles. There is likely to be a delay of five minutes on the online and mobile platforms in India.
