ENG vs NZ ICC World Cup Match Prediction Today – Match 41, 2019
ICC World Cup 2019, London: World cup hosts England and New Zealand are in the same situation as they lock horns to have a good chance to make it to semifinals here at Chester-le-Street!
Both teams started their world cup campaign on a strong note but have struggled lately with back to back to losses respectively. With one more game remaining for both sides, they would be looking to progress into semifinals for World cup.
England Team Updates :
England has been backed as favorites to win this world cup. But much to their agony, they suffered a rude shock with two losses against Sri Lanka and Australia respectively. But they bounced back strongly with a win against tournament hot favorites India in their last match.
Jason Roy returned from the injury and played spectacular innings which proved to be a magic tonic for England.
Their openers Roy and Bairstow were exceptional throughout the maTCH while Stokes and Root performed exceptionally well with their batting.
Coming to their bowling unit, Jofra Archer Archer and Woakes were providing a good start and preventing the batsman from scoring runs especially in first and death overs. Plunkett and Mark Wood pace have troubled opposition batsman and would be looking to fire again!
New Zealand Team Updates :
Currently, the Kiwis team is sitting third place in the points table, will try to gain two more points by winning against England. But much to their shocker, they suffered a humiliating defeat against Australia and Pakistan respectively.
SO having lost two matches, they would be eyeing for a win against England on Wednesday to book a semi-final spot in World cup.
But if we go through kiwis performance, it is evident that they were pretty much dependant on Captain Williamson and Ross Taylor. If both batsmen fail in the upcoming match, it would be difficult for them to sustain in this World cup.
Meanwhile, their bowling unit looks impressive with the likes of Boult, Henry, and Ferguson.
