New Delhi: The first semi-final of the sixth edition of the ICC World Twenty20 is between New Zealand and England, which is scheduled to take place at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Wednesday.

Spinners have been the key for the Black Caps thus far in the tournament. And in the semis too, Kane Williamson-led side will rely heavily on -- Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi.

Even though the Kiwis have reached this far without losing a single game, batting is a concern for the team as they have crossed the 150-run mark just once in the tourney.

As far as England's batting is concerned, it is largely dependent on Root, but on their day, Alex Hales, Stokes, Buttler and skipper Eion Morgan can also turn the tables single-handedly.

All-rounder Moeen Ali can also play a crucial role on Kotla's slow track, both with bat and ball.

Squads:

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Ross Taylor, Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Luke Ronchi (wk), Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Mitchell McLenaghan, Nathan McCullum, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne.

England: Eoin Morgan (captain), Alex Hales, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Adil Rasheed, Chris Jordan, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, James Vince, Reece Topley, Liam Dawson, Sam Billings.

Date: March 28, Monday

Time: 7 pm (IST)

Venue: Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
