New Zealand will look to seal the series when they take on England in the fourth T20I in Napier tomorrow. They're currently leading 2-1 in this five-match T20I series.

After two back to back wins New Zealand has momentum and confidence with them and also they are playing good collective cricket. Though they will hope that Colin Munro and Tim Seifert come among runs and Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor will convert their starts into big knocks. In the bowling Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Mitchell Santner and Lockie Ferguson have done well so far, though Ferguson has been replaced by Trent Boult for the last two matches. 

On the other hand, England must be gutted after throwing away a good opportunity in the last match and to stay alive in the series they need to improve their fielding and death overs bowling. They have rotated their squad throughout the series and this trend should continue and Jonny Bairstow, Chris Jordan, and Adil Rashid might come to the playing XI for this must-win contest.
