New Zealand opted to bowl first in the all-important T20 World Cup 2021 semi-finale versus hot favourites England, who are going to miss the services of Jason Roy. That a player of his calibre missing out barely makes a dent encapsulates England's recent dominance in white-ball cricket. England skipper Eoin Morgan hopes the toss will not have a huge bearing on the outcome of the eliminator as they bring in Sam Billings for Roy. New Zealand haven't tinkered with the winning combination, and would relish chasing at a venue that has favoured teams batting second in no small measure.
