Abu Dhabi: Kane Williamson won the toss and decided that New Zealand will bowl first against England in the first semifinal of the ICC men's T20 World Cup at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Wednesday.
England skipper Eoin Morgan said that he would have looked to bowl first too. "But hopefully the toss doesn't decide the result of the game," said Morgan. Jonny Bairstow will open for the English in place of the injured Jason Roy.
