New Zealand win toss and bat against England

GROS ISLET, Saint Lucia: New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori won the toss and elected to bat against England in a World Twenty20 Super Eights match at the Beuasejour Stadium here on Monday.

England, already through to the semi-finals regardless of this result following champions Pakistan''s 11-run win over South Africa, made one change to the side that beat the Proteas by 39 runs in Barbados on Saturday.

Ravi Bopara replaced Kevin Pietersen after the in-form batsman returned to London to attend the birth of his first child.

New Zealand also made one change to the team that beat Pakistan by one run in Barbados last weekend.

With the side struggling for top order runs, Aaron Redmond came in for fellow batsman Martin Guptill.

Victory for New Zealand in this final Group E fixture would see them into the semi-finals but a defeat would likely see them lose out to Pakistan on net run-rate.
