England and New Zealand are all set to face off in the third match of their four-match T20I series. Edgbaston in Birmingham will host this clash on Sunday, September 3.
England, led by Jos Buttler, took an unassailable lead in the series after winning the second match by 95 runs at the Old Trafford in Manchester. In both matches, the Three Lions have looked dominating, to say the least.
After opting to bat first in Manchester, England put up a huge score of 198 for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs. Jonny Bairstow was absolutely stupendous as he stayed not out on 86 runs off 60 balls with eight fours and four sixes.
Harry Brook continued his impressive run in the series, having notched 67 runs off 36 balls with five fours and as many sixes. Ish Sodhi picked up two wickets, but ended up leaking 44 runs.
Chasing the big target, the Black Caps were bowled out for 103 in 13.5 overs. The Kiwis have looked lacklustre in both matches and they somehow would want to ensure that they avoid a series defeat.
