The only team New Zealand is that it has not lost a match thus far in the edition of the World Cup 2019. While Kiwis have not played cricket of the last ten days such as their previous match which is against India at Trent Bridge in Nottingham get washed off because of rain. The three resounding victories are under their belt. In the meantime, the Black Caps have an incredible net run rate of +2.163, and it is the highest among all the teams.
The team of New Zealand is Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson (Captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (wk), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, and Trent Boult.
Their team is Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis (Captain), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Lungi Ngidi.
The Protease is likely to bring in Lungi Ngidi. Who has recovered from the cripple injury he sustained during the match versus Bangladesh. The speedster may replace left-armor Beuran Hendricks, and he also replaced Dale Steyn in the squad. Moreover, their batting is yet to get in a move down. After the three failures, Hashim Amla gets an undefeated 41 in the previous match. But he takes the 83 balls to score those runs.
The Quinton de Kock has arguably their better batsmen with the 186 runs at an average of 46.50. Their bowling has sensible. Further, Imran Tahir is the leading wicket-taker with eight scalps. Andile Phehlukwayo and Chris Morris have made progress. The concern reclines with Kagiso Rabada, who is yet to find his rhythm, though the youngster has picked up five wickets.
The Black Caps would not want to change their winning conjunction from the last match. Colin Munro and Martin Guptill started with a group of half-centuries. Both the succumbed to low scores in the previous two encounters. Furthermore, the Kane Williamson has scored runs at an average of 119. While he needs to work on his strike-rate and which is currently at 69.59. The Ross Taylor has their most unbeatable batsman with a strike-rate of 90.90.
Tom Latham has not got going further. In the bowling sector, experienced Trent Boult is yet to come into his own. The Lockie Ferguson has bowled with speed and venom. Neesham also gets his first five-wicket haul against Afghanistan. Similarly, both Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner are the other all-rounders in the lineup along with Needham. Of course, Matt Henry also has with the wickets.
