KATHMANDU: England and New Zealand have faced each other on nine previous occasions at the World Cup and the Black Caps hold a narrow advantage 5-4. England, who reach their fourth final, the first since 1992, are the favorites to win ICC Men Cricket World Cup 2019 when they take on underdogs’ New Zealand in the final at the Lord’s on Sunday.
Whatever happens at Lord’s on Sunday there will be a new team lifting the ICC men’s Cricket World Cup trophy.
Either hosts England at the Home of Cricket or New Zealand, in their second successive final, will be celebrating.
The tenth meeting between the two teams in ICC men’s Cricket World Cups will undoubtedly be the most important, with New Zealand holding the most slender of leads.
If England are looking for good omens though, they can reflect on their record against the Kiwis over the last four years since their World Cup nadir in Wellington.
