The 2nd T20 Practice Match of the England Tour of New Zealand is scheduled to be held today. In the last played match yesterday, England XI has washed off New Zealand XI by 6 wickets. Once again, both teams will be facing each other in Lincoln today’s morning. Hopefully, all the teammates will be getting a chance to play on the pitch today as it’s being a warm match. New Zealand XI has to work more and need to put more effort to be in the lead, else England XI will take off the series.
