Preview

On October 5, in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, England and New Zealand ENG vs NZ will square off in the opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup. England has gone undefeated in their previous five games and appears to be in excellent shape for the World Cup. On the other hand, New Zealand has performed admirably recently, winning their last two matches.

Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat during Bangladesh’s last match against England, which was a World Cup warm-up game. Tanzid and Mehidy calmed the storm after Bangladesh’s rough start, during which they cheaply lost two of their wickets. In a rain-affected contest of 37 overs each side, they scored 188 runs after the partnership ended but then started losing wickets again. As they easily won the game by four wickets, England did not struggle to reach this target.

In their most recent encounter, when South Africa was the opponent, New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. Following a respectable opening stand, New Zealand went on to have a run of outstanding partnerships, with nearly the entire lineup of batsmen contributing meaningfully. They scored a formidable total of 321 runs, to which South Africa responded with a powerful response after losing an early wicket. However, because to rain, the game had to be called because it could not continue. New Zealand won the game by seven runs.
