After opting to bat first, the New Zealand team could manage 241 for 8 in their quota of 50 overs in the first innings of the World Cup 2019 finals against England. 

After the early loss of Martin Guptill's wicket, Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls steadied the ship and took the score over 100. The opener Nicholls got a fifty, but the Kiwi skipper was unable to carry on and was dismissed by Liam Plunkett for 30. 

Regular wickets thereafter meant that the Kiwi innings never really took off, and despite Tom Latham's 47, the Black Caps managed 241 in the first innings. 

For the English team, Plunkett and Chris Woakes starred as they picked up three wickets each. Jofra Archer, hwoever, was the star in the last ten overs, as he gave away only 22 runs in the death.

England need 242 to win their first ever World Cup title, and while the target looks an easy one, the Kiwis have some of the best bowlers in the business, and the first ten overs of the run-chase is what will decide the outcome of the finals.
