England will face New Zealand in the fourth and final T20I match of the series to be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on 6th September 2023. New Zealand came back strongly in the 3rd T20I with a dominating 74-run victory. Thanks to brilliant knocks by Finn Allen and Glenn Phillips, New Zealand posted 202 for 5 in 20 overs and then skittled out the hosts cheaply.
New Zealand made two changes in the previous changes with Matt Henry and Kyle Jamieson. Kyle Jamieson and Ish Sodhi grabbed 3 wickets each while Southee 2, Matt Henry, and Santer took 1 wicket each respectively.
On the other hand, England also made two changes as Luke Wood and Chris Jordan were included in the playing XI. Gus Atkinson was the pick of bowlers with 2 for 31 in 4 overs, and Luke Wood and Liam Livingstone grabbed 1 wicket each. In the batting department, England captain Jos Buttler was the top scorer with 40 runs.
Both teams might go with an unchanged squad. England would look to seal the series while New Zealand would level the series at 2-2.
