They faced a close defeat in the first warm-up fixture against Australia while England outplayed them in the second warm-up fixture. Their fast bowling has been a concern in T20 internationals.

They have covered up most of the bases in the squad but their spinners do not look the most threatening which is going to be key in UAE. They play their first game against Pakistan on Tuesday and it will be interesting to see if they could snatch up a win against them. Group 2 looks the easier of the two and they should fancy their chances for the semifinals. Here is New Zealand Squad And Schedule, Groups, Time, And Venue in ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
