England vs New Zealand Previous results: The SportsRush present before you the Head to Head record for ENG vs NZ 2019 World Cup match.
The final of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between New Zealand and England at Lord’s on Sunday. While England will be banking on their home advantage, New Zealand would be boosted after beating India in the first semi-final at Old Trafford.
Talking about both the teams’ performance in the league stage, England had finished third after winning and losing six and three matches respectively. On the contrary, New Zealand had only won five out of their nine matches and qualified on the basis of a better Net Run Rate than Pakistan.
In the league stage, both the teams had faced each other just over a week ago. In what was the last match of both the teams in the league stage, England had thumped New Zealand by 119 runs at Chester-le-Street.
After England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and chose to bat, England posted 305/8 in 50 overs on the back of opening batsman Jonny Bairstow scoring 106 (99) with the help of 15 fours and a six.
Other than New Zealand wicket-keeper batsman Tom Latham’s 57 (65), no other Kiwi batsman scored significantly. England fast bowler Mark Wood’s bowling figures of 9-0-34-3 played a key role in bundling out the opposition for 186 in 45 overs.
