Ahead of the match, the five-clash affair was perfectly poised at 2-2. The fans were expecting another nail-biting clash in the decider but another Super-over was beyond assumption. With this victory, England have added salt to New Zealand's wounds and continued their dominance in white-ball cricket. With the ICC World T20 2020 being less than a year away, Eoin Morgan and Co look all prepared to add another trophy to their name. On the other, the Kiwis will look to get better of their opposition in the showpiece tournament.
