New Zealand lose top wicket taker Lockie Ferguson for England showdown

New Zealand lose top wicket taker Lockie Ferguson for England showdown”

Hello and welcome to Sportstar's Live coverage of ICC World Cup 2019, Match 41 between England and New Zealand. The first game, I wasn't playing but it still felt different for me. Hopefully, he will recover quickly'.

Skipper Eoin Morgan said that pitch and overheads were the decisive factors, ESPNcricinfo reported. There is more on the line so there is more excitement. We were allowed to do that at the beginning, the way the two guys played. The host remains unchanged.

The English challenge for Kane and Co.

Venue: Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.

If England lose in Chester-le-Street, Pakistan could leapfrog them into the top four with victory over Bangladesh, whose own semi-final hopes ended with a defeat by India on Tuesday that sent Virat Kohli´s men through.

England have arrived in the northeast buoyed by a 31-run win over an India side that were previously unbeaten. He resumed his imperious opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow against India and added 160 runs for the opening wicket.

Against a tough New Zealand side, England needs to play with intensity.

New Zealand, on the other hand, have suffered batting collapses. On a surface which could aid the batsmen, Guptill - who batted at the nets for long - will be keen to strike form. They will then have to look for favourable results from Pakistan's next match against Bangladesh.

England's male cricketers have to deliver a win today or this World Cup will have been a total failure.

England is looking to avenge an embarrassing eight-wicket loss to New Zealand at the 2015 World Cup, which captain Eoin Morgan described as the "rock bottom" moment of his career. But New Zealand's chances, in that scenario, get a boost since it has a far better NRR than Pakistan.

A Black Caps spokesperson confirmed to Stuff that Ferguson missed training the day before the England match due to the injury. Guptill is out of sorts and needs a score.

"It's a matter of staying in the moment, identifying what we can do in order to contribute to the next game, which is tomorrow".

But the pleasing aspect for England, other than the result, was that the defeat of India was built on numerous factors that have been key to their one-day worldwide revival since a first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup.
