New Zealand held their nerves admirably to make it a hat-trick of ICC event final entrances, trumping England in a see-sawing semi-final clash in Abu Dhabi. You would feel they are too nice to believe in revenging anything, even if it is as bitter as the fateful 2019 ODI World Cup loss, so let’s put it this way: the scores are settled. And in doing so, New Zealand have made it to the finals of a tournament no one counted them as the favourites of.
After being inserted, a Jason Roy-less England managed 166/4 largely on the back of Dawid Malan (41 off 30), who got back his mojo at the right time, and Moeen Ali (51 off 37), who proved it for the umpteenth time what a marvellous short-format asset he is.
