New Zealand and England match at the Twenty20 World Cup came to a dramatic finish. New Zealand emerged victorious over England by 5 wickets in the first semi-final in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Over the last five years, this has emerged as one of the fiercest rivalries in the lCC Championships. Be it World T20 in 2016 or the ODI World Cup in 2019, Eoin Morgan’s marauders and Kane Williamson’s team have faced each other in nail-biting knockouts.
As soon as NZ registered their come-from-behind win, Twitterverse could not believe what had just happened and there were some really good reactions to the win.
Most New Zealand fans saw the win as sweet revenge against England.
It was in the 2019 ODI World Cup when New Zealand lost the trophy to England via the boundary count rule. It was a controversial end to an epic final.
Many NZ fans believed the Black Caps deserved the win that day. However, as per the rules, England was declared the winner.
On Wednesday, NZ managed to get back at England in the T20 World Cup and knocked them out of competition.
