The biggest game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is here. Hosts England take on New Zealand at the Mecca of cricket on Sunday. New Zealand go into this game after a morale boosting win over India at Old Trafford, Manchester whereas, Eoin Morgan led side thrashed the defending champions to book their place in the finals. Kane Williamson led side will be the underdogs but they might manage to shock the hosts if they get things in place.

For New Zealand, skipper Kane Williamson has been in amazing form throughout the tournament and has scored 548 runs at an average of 91.33 including 2 hundreds. The major concern for the black caps would be the form of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro at the top of the order. Otherwise, they look a settled unit with almost every player contributing at different situations. In the bowling department, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult and Matt Henry will pose a threat to the English batsmen. The trio has picked 48 wickets between them. They would be keen to break the backbone of England's batting order by picking up quick wickets early on in the innings just like the semifinal game against India.

On the other hand, England have all bases covered. Though they had some minor hiccups in the group stage with losses against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, they came back strongly to secure a spot in the top four after beating India and New Zealand in successive games. Their hopes would rest upon the top three comprising of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root. On the bowling front, their newest addition Jofra Archer has had a memorable World Cup outing picking up 19 wickets at an average of 22.05. He has been ably supported by Chris Woakes and Mark Wood.
