New Zealand captain Kane Williamson says the unpredictability of cricket's shortest format means his team are taking nothing for granted ahead of Wednesday's World Twenty20 semi-final against England. 

The Kiwis have breezed into the last four of the competition with four straight wins, but will take on an England team that look to be peaking at the right time after hard-fought wins over Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

England are also more familiar with the conditions, having won those games at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi - where the two teams will meet on Wednesday - while New Zealand played their four group games in four different venues.

"I know that going into tomorrow, it's a big, exciting match but our feet are firmly on the ground and we going to be running to perform our plans as best as we can," said Williamson. 

"We need to look at the condition before we decide on our final side. Naturally we'll consider the track we're playing on, the ground size and also the opposition.

"England have been fortunate to play on these conditions a couple of times but I think in Twenty20 cricket, anything can happen."

Williamson made light of his side's city-hopping itinerary, adding: "That's great, we've been out to see more of India than most opposition sides. 

"Surely it happens just by coincidence. The guys embraced the flights and enjoyed the variety of hotels."
