England have already qualified for the semi-finals while New Zealand need to win this game to move ahead. In case of an England victory, Sri Lanka are in with a chance to go ahead depending upon the overall net run rates. So keeping in view all the permutations, it's hard to predict anything as yet. England have been playing really well beating both Sri Lanka and South Africa. They looked a completely different team than the one which recently lost to Australia 6-1 at home. With a winning streak on, England will be going all out for a win. The batting has clicked well and Owais Shah and Paul Collingwood's good form give good hope. While Eoin Morgan has proved to be a revelation for England scoring consistently and briskly. England will hope that their openers score more runs as the tournament gets into the business end. In bowling it has been a case of so far so good for England but they will have to keep working hard as New Zealand batsmen will be giving it their all today. After a good show against Sri Lanka, Black Caps have got their destiny in their own hands now. However, the loss of Jesse Ryder will be a big one who will miss out due to injury. New Zealand need to give another fine all round display as it's a do or die game for them. In bowling they need some more oomph as Shane Bond hasn't been able to make a substantial impression. Daniel Vettori has been playing really well and will be required to play another captain's role. Keeping in view the form, England are favourites. But it is expected to be close game given the fact that both teams are more or less equally matched. Players to look out for Owais Shah has been termed as England batting's mainstay for long but hasn't been able to deliver consistently. He played a fine knock against South Africa the other day and England will be hoping that he keeps up his good form as England aim to keep up the winning spree. Skipper Daniel Vettori will be the main man for New Zealand in this important game. Vettori has developed into a capable batsman and his bowling has always been tidy. He has the ability to see Black Caps through to the semi-final and will be one to watch out for today both with bat and ball.
