Finally, we came to the decisive stage of the T20 World Cup, with the first semifinal to review now. Both teams managed to take eight points in their groups, where England topped their sextet, while the Kiwis finished second after undefeated Pakistan.
The Super 12 stage was quite different for both teams. England was dominating everyone in the group until the last round, where they could relax a bit in the game against South Africa due to the great run rate. On the contrary, New Zealand had to fight in the opening duels with Pakistan and India, and the victory over the Men in Blue allowed them to grab the second spot in their sextet.
