England vs New Zealand, 1st Semi-final, Betting Tips 10/11/2021

Teams Status


India may not be a part of the World Cup anymore but there are still semi-finals to be played out. Not just any semi-finals either but a pair of clashes among the teams that played the best cricket.

First up is a repeat of the 2019 World Cup final, with Eoin Morgan’s side, winners of Group 1, facing New Zealand, the team that finished as runners-up in Group 2.

England had built themselves up as arguably the scariest team in the competition and are still the bookies’ favourites to win it all but their CV did suffer a bit of damage in the last game when they were defeated by South Africa, albeit by a small margin.

The surprising thing in that game was the uncharacteristically ordinary bowling by the England pacers, whose combined 12 overs went for a whopping 136 runs and offset the decent job done by the miserly Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.

New Zealand

New Zealand started their campaign with a defeat to Pakistan but have since bounced back nicely, stringing together a run of four straight wins, even if the last three of those wins have been against much smaller sides.

They have a history in this fixture as it was England that captured 50-over World Cup glory at their expense and under a cloud of controversy two years ago.

New Zealand coach Gary Stead has this week said that his team won’t be haunted by what happened in 2019 but it’s hard to believe that that loss won’t be somewhere in the back of the Kiwis’ minds.

“I haven’t heard anything spoken about it [2019 World Cup final here] here,” Stead is quoted as saying by ESPN. “I think the guys are looking forward to the prospect of facing England again. As I said, they’re a quality side and yes, we just look forward to the challenge of playing the best side as well. So, I’m not sure there will be anything from the 2019 game that will come into it…maybe a Super Over it might.”

New Zealand’s most impressive performer thus far in this World Cup has been Trent Boult, who has 11 wickets in just five games.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: New Zealand to win @ 2.504

We like England and until recently were calling them the juggernauts of the tournament but something tells us that their installment as the favourites has stuck for too long and seems too good to pay off. We sniff an upset. On the other side, the Kiwis also have their own strengths as well, chiefly among which is Trent’s thunderbolts. We won’t go crazy on this and instead stake just a fraction of our bankroll. The play and the odds have been sourced from 22Bet.

Tip: New Zealand top bowler – Trent Boult @ 3.50

If New Zealand are to win, Boult will have to keep on doing what he’s been doing so far in this tournament: take wickets. We believe in him, and believe that he’d be the chief tormentor in New Zealand avenging their 2019 defeat. The odds have been sourced from 22Bet.


England are the better side but New Zealand pack a surprise factor and also have the motivation that comes with the revenge factor. At underdog odds, they warrant a small play.
