England kick off their journey in ICC World Twenty20 today, March 22, against New Zealand at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong at 19:30 local time (13:30 GMT).
Although England has undergone immense practice for the format, they are yet to gain form. Their unexpected losses and injury problems kept them under pressure.
While Joe Root will miss the tournament for his thumb fracture, Ben Stokes is dealing with a broken wrist. To add to the woes, skipper Stuart Broad is not in form.
However, England has James Tredwell for the spin department and can rely on Jos Buttler for getting quick runs.
