England have started in sedate fashion at Abu Dhabi in the T20 World Cup 2021 semi-final clash against New Zealand, with reunited openers Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler helping themselves to a couple of boundaries each. The scoreboard reads 37 for no loss after 5 overs, which isn't too alarming a figure if you are a Kiwi fan. Trent Boult and Tim Southee have shared the new ball between them, bowling decently for the better part of the PowerPlay, save for the five wides presented to England rather benevolently.
