England take on New Zealand at the T20 World Cup today as the battle for a place in the final on Sunday.
England finished top of their Super 12s group despite a defeat to South Africa in the final match, while New Zealand finished second in their group behind the only team with a 100 per cent winning record, Pakistan, who take on Australia tomorrow in the other semi.
The fixture stirs memories of when England won a dramatic match against New Zealand two years ago in the ODI World Cup final at Lord’s, which went down to the final ball of the Super Over.
New Zealand meanwhile are the current Test world champions, but it is England who come into this short-format game favourites, with Australia and the so-far unbeaten Pakistan to play in Wednesday’s other semi-final.
Here is everything you need to know.
When is the match?
England vs New Zealand starts at 2pm GMT today, Wednesday 10 November, at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
How to watch it

England are without Jason Roy after he suffered a calf injury against South Africa, with James Vince coming into the squad to replace him. New Zealand are likely to be unchanged from the XI which cursed past Afghanistan on Sunday.
England: Eoin Morgan, Moeen Ali, Jonathan Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Reece Topley, Adil Rashid, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
New Zealand: Kane Williamson, Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Devon Conway, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Kyle Jamieson, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee.
England have been explosive throughout the tournament but without Jason Roy the task just got a bit tougher. Much will depend on the brilliance of Jos Buttler, and if he performs then England have a good chance to prevail. But without Roy, Buttler is now the only Englishman to have totalled more than 100 runs in the tournament so far, and the pressure is on the rest of the batting line-up to step up. New Zealand to win, but only just.
