Watch: Fans go crazy over Jonny Bairstow's "Trent Boult moment" from the 2019 World Cup


England and New Zealand faced off each other in the 1st semi-final of ICC T20 World 2021. Having a look at the match, the New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and asked the opposition to bat first.

Both Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow gave a good start to their innings. However, Adam Milne removed Jonny Bairstow for 13 runs. After that, Ish Sodhi removed the dangerous Jos Buttler before he gets settled.

Then Dawid Malan and Moeen Ali played a crucial role in the middle and added 63 runs for the 3rd wicket partnership before Tim Southee removes the right-hander for 41 runs.

But Moeen Ali looked unstoppable on the other end and remained unbeaten on 51 runs and Liam Livingstone played a quick cameo of 17 from 10 balls. In the end, England posted a challenging total of 166 runs on the board.

Summary of the match between England vs New Zealand:

Daryl Mitchell

Chasing the target of 167 runs, both Martin Guptill and skipper Kane Williamson returned to the pavilion with a single-digit score. Then Daryl Mitchell and Devon Conway played an important inning in the middle for New Zealand and added 82 runs for the third wicket partnership.

But Liam Livingstone gives the breakthrough for his team by removing the well-settled Devon Conway for 46 runs. He continued his good flow with the ball and went on to remove Glenn Phillips for 2 runs.

However, the game-changing innings come from Jimmy Neesham's bat when he smashed 23 runs in the 17th over bowled by Chris Jordan and completely turned the face of the game. Still, Adil Rashid sent back the dangerous Jimmy Neesham and put his team back on the track.

However, Daryl Mitchell who was playing an anchor role for New Zealand smacked back-to-back sixes in the 19th over bowled by Chris Woakes. In the end, he finished the match for his team and took them to the finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

Besides, there was an incident that occurred during the 17th over off Chris Jordan, as Jonny Bairstow grabbed the catch but his knee touched the boundary line. The same happened way back in the 2019 ICC World Cup when Trent Boult took the catch of Ben Stokes and stepped on the boundary rope.
