(Sporting Alert) — New Zealand have won the toss and will bowl first in their ICC 2014 World Twenty20 clash with England in Group 1 at Chittagong.
England captain Stuart Broad, who has overcome a knee injury and will lead his team today, said he would have also bowled first had he won the call.
Brendon McCullum decided to have a go in the field first because he wanted to take advantage of the early dew, which is expected to give something to his bowlers.
