Will New Zealand Seal a Win in the Finals?
The NZ performed exceptionally well against the heavy favorites of the semi-finals India as they knocked them out of the tournament by 18 runs. India stood on top of the table in the group stage, having lost just one match against England and had high hopes to reach the finals.
Though the match went on for 2 days, it was an easy target for India to chase down but the initial wickets of the key players of the team gave New Zealand the chance to turn the match in their favor. The partnership between Dhoni and Jadeja showed a little bit of hope but they were unfortunate for a run-out and a catch respectively.
Trent Boult and Matt Henry were in their best form against India as they took the first 3 main wickets in less than 5 overs. Ferguson, Mitchell Santner, and the other 2 all-rounders are in good bowling form this season. NZ has to work on batsmen as they are too dependable on Williamson and Taylor.
Will it be a First-Win, Home-Win for England?
England played their biggest match of the season in the semis against Australia as they were on a 2 game winless streak against the Aussies. England proved their competence, having won the semi-finals by 8 wickets. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first and gave 224 as a target to reach.
Aaron Finch, the captain of the team was bowled out in the first ball by Jofra Archer and the only player of Australia to score more than 50 in the semis was Steve Smith -95. At the 49th over the final wicket was taken by Mark Wood. England’s opening batsman Jason Roy scored the highest 85 runs for the team and was sent out by Pat Cummins.
Bairstow scored 34 runs and was sent out by Starc, who took his 27th wicket of the season. JE Root and Morgan maintained a perfect partnership as they finished off the match sealing a win against Australia. Chris Woakes of England was awarded player of the match, which shows that England has both strong bowlers and batsmen.
The Blues or the Blacks? – Our prediction
New Zealand lost 3 matches in the group stage and was likely to be beatable in the semis but they proved it wrong by winning over the team that topped the table this season. For the second consecutive time, the NZs have reached the cricket world cup finals and this time they look confident enough to clinch the title.
By beating India in a thriller, would have given them the confidence that is needed to defeat England. England looks strong enough with batting in the 2019 Cricket world cup with Roy, Bairstow, JE Root, Stokes, Morgan, and Buttler all in their best forms and therefore chasing a target might be favorable for England this Sunday.
It is for sure that a new name will be added in the list of World Cup winners this Sunday. Will it be the 3rd consecutive time that the host nation wins the Cricket World Cup? Considering the teams’ performances so far, chances are high for England to lift the trophy this season.
