And now T20 world cup 2016 means real business. Four teams have progressed to the semi-finals and others have packed bags and returned home. Bad luck to them and all the best to India, New Zealand, England and West Indies who have managed to reach the semis. The first semi-final match will be played today between New Zealand and England. HotStar continues its quality live streaming and score coverage for ICC T20 World Cup 2016. Watch New Zealand vs England match live streaming and scores on HotStar online. Live telecast with Hindi and English commentary will be available on Star Sports and DD National in India.
For ages, New Zealand was never considered as favourites before any ICC event kicked off. Things have changed drastically. Thanks to players like Brendon McCullum who changed the whole mindset for the team. While he is no longer available, the team led by Kane Williamson is still progressing on the same path. They are playing some quality cricket and they have been the only unbeaten team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 so far. They defeated India, Australia, Pakistan and Bangladesh. They would now face the semi final challenge from the in-form England team.
New Zealand have made it to the semi-finals many a times in the past. But they reached the finals of 2015 cricket world cup to change the whole perception. They are now well capable and confident to book a berth in the finals that would be played on 3rd April 2016.
England could be considered a relatively weaker side today but not much on this ground. They have played couple of matches on Feroz Shah Kotla stadium, faced tough challenge from Sri Lanka and Afghanistan; still managed wins.
England's biggest strength is the batting line up. It goes down till Moeen Ali and David Willey. Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Jos Butler - too many good T20 batsmen out there in the batting department.
The second semi-final would be played tomorrow at the much beloved venue - Wankhede Stadium, between India and West Indies. What a match that promises to be. You can enjoy India vs West Indies live streaming and scores too on HotStar and Star Sports.
