Trent boult

Quick left arm

Boult is the tournament’s leader in wicket catch among closers, with 11 to just 10 apiece and an excellent economy rate of 5.84.

He is Kane Williamson’s man of reference under pressure: Boult defeated the super in the 2019 World Cup final against England, and the 32-year-old has learned a lot from six seasons in the IPL. Be careful swinging early.

Trent Boult is the tournament's leading wicket taker and the man to go to under pressure.

Tim southee

Quick right arm

An ideal foil for Boult, with the stitching and swing of the right arm and clever use of the fold. No New Zealander has more than his 106 T20 wickets, and his World Cup economic rate of 5.70 is the best of any sailor who has thrown at least 20 overs.

Southee is consistency personified: In five Super 12 games he conceded 25, 26, 24, 15 and 24.

Adam milne

Quick right arm

A late replacement for the injured Lockie Ferguson, Milne, a T20 Blast regular with Kent, provides pace and precision, although he has been limited to two wickets in four games. But his four overs of 17 helped put down Afghanistan in Sunday’s essential match in Abu Dhabi.

Adam Milne provides speed and precision and helped put down Afghanistan last time.

Ish sodhi

Leg twist with the right arm

Their broken legs, thrown from a great height, have been one of New Zealand’s main weapons, and their lands of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli prepared them for the crucial early victory over India. Sodhi played Moeen Ali in Worcestershire, so at least England has an inside court.

Mitchell santner

Left arm finger twist

He backs up Sodhi with his precise left arm swing – four overs of 15 helped India slow down. He took 11 wickets in five T20s when England toured New Zealand in 2019-20 and has only closed once in the entire tournament, when two overs against Afghanistan cost 27.

Mitchell Santner takes a left arm swing and took out 11 England wickets on his 2019-20 tour.

James neesham

Right half arm

Largely the sixth pitcher, although he exceeded his full quota of four overs against Afghanistan and conceded just 18 of three against Pakistan. His medium pace is accurate, but he can be beaten for that.
