England lost warm-up match against Pakistan as well. So it’s been really frustrating for them so far. Frustration can be increased more as they are up against the side which is in superb form and playing in their home conditions. New Zealand have won their two matches of world cup played so far and they defeated Pakistan in a two ODI matches series earlier this month.
Blackcaps are too much dependent on their batting line-up. Kane Williamson is at the pick in his small cricketing career so far and playing like a boss. On the other hand Captain McCullum, Taylor and all-rounder Corey Anderson are playing aggressive cricket. But the way New Zealand lost 7 wickets in the small runs chase against Scotland, it proved that their batting line-up can get under pressure at some times.
This is a good news for England as their bowlers are in good form. Steven Finn took hat-trick against Australia. Stuart Broad was also getting rhythm correct in that opening match. What about James Anderson, he is always a key bowler in the English attack and at the front he can take quick wickets. So it’s going to be good battle between these two nations tomorrow. Let’s have a look at the probable playing XI teams.
