The first semi-final of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 will see England cross swords with New Zealand at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, November 10. The pitch in Abu Dhabi is a true one, with adequate assistance for both batters and bowlers. However, both teams are likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss given the dew factor, since it is a night game. Batters should enjoy the ball coming onto the bat in the powerplay overs and swing bowlers will extract some juice early on. Spinners are likely to come into play in the crucial middle overs.
