New Zealand vs England : England stormed into their first World Cup final since 1992 after dispatching Australia, setting up a showdown against New Zealand at Lord’s on Sunday. England face New Zealand in Sunday’s 2019 Cricket World Cup final at Lord’s with both teams aiming to lift the trophy for the first time.
The tournament hosts are into the final for a fourth time and will be confident of victory having beaten New Zealand in the group stage.
However, the Black Caps have already produced a shock by beating India in the semi-finals and will want to avoid being beaten finalists for the second World Cup in a row.
A comprehensive eight-wicket victory over their oldest rivals was England’s first in the knockout rounds of the tournament in 27 years and they now have a first global 50-over title firmly in their sights.
In the knockout stages, England have looked imperious, but in the group stages they left it late to ensure qualification.
Here, Nick Hoult (England) and Tim Wigmore (New Zealand) analyse the form of the likely starting XIs ahead of Sunday’s showpiece event:
Cricket’s global crown will find a new resting place today when perennial bridesmaids England and New Zealand square off in the 2019 World Cup final at Lord’s. By the end of the final, cricket will have first-time world champions for the first time since 1996, when Sri Lanka etched its name into cricketing folklore.
