England-New Zealand clash in World Cup final
New Zealand stunned table toppers India in the semifinals to progress through to the finals of the World Cup. The experienced batting duo of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor has been shouldering the responsibility after consistent failures from the top order. Meanwhile, their bowling attack, powered by the intensity of Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry and well-supported by disciplined Trent Boult has been producing match-defining results in the tournament. The Kiwis will look to put another all-round effort against England in the final to cross the final hurdle in the competition.
On the other hand, England’s top-order has been in significant form throughout the World Cup. The top three of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root, have amassed 1,471 runs between them and will look to do the job one more time. The bowling – Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes also look in good shape with everyone chipping in with crucial contributions throughout the tournament. England, who have produced some outstanding cricket in the last four years and will need one more win to reach the pinnacle of success.
