ENG vs NZ
England will take on New Zealand for the upcoming encounter of the ICC Men’s World Cup. The blackcaps got off to a flying start but two consecutive defeats have put them in a risky proposition and they have not qualified for the semis yet. Their counterparts England have also not qualified yet for the semis and a win today will give them an opportunity to get into the knockouts.
New Zealand hunt to get their campaign back on track
New Zealand have 11 points under their belt while England have amassed 10 points so far. A win against India have revived the hopes of latter and they will look forward to take advantage of their confidence and carry it forward against the black caps. England have been bolstered with the return of Jason Roy. He put a partnership of 160 runs with Jonny Bairstow and he would be eager to replicate in the next match too.
New Zealand come into this match after suffering two back to back defeats against Pakistan and Australia. While bowlers have delivered goods for the team, there are a few problems that have left the black caps yearning for more. When they meet England, they would hope to avoid a hat-trick of losses.
