Eng vs NZ Weather Report

It will be a pretty cold day at the Chester-le-Street on Wednesday with temperature between 14 and 18 degrees Celsius. Humidity is expected to be around 65%. There will be quite a bit of cloud cover during the first period of play and the sun is likely to make its way out in the second-half.

Eng vs NZ Pitch Condition

The pitch at the Riverside Ground should be a good one for batting. Seam bowlers are expected to find a bit of movement early on with the new ball due to the cloud cover and the gentle breeze.

Eng vs NZ Toss Prediction

Since the side batting second has won more often than the side batting first at this ground in the game's 50-over format, the toss-winning skipper will probably elect to bowl first.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Jason Roy, who missed the last three games due to hamstring injury, returned in England's win over India at Birmingham. He replaced James Vince who looked out of sorts in the three opportunities that he received and will continue to open the batting alongside Jonny Bairstow. The home team also made a tactical change, bringing in pace bowler Liam Plunkett in place of spin bowling all-rounder Moeen Ali. Plunkett impressed with his three-wicket haul and is likely to be retained. England, after their clinical performance in the last game, are expected to go in with an unchanged line-up.

ENG Key Players

Joe Root: England's number three is amongst the top five batsmen in this World Cup having scored 476 runs in eight matches at an average of 68. He has cracked two centuries and three half-centuries in the tournament and has been scoring consistently for his team.

Ben Stokes: One of the best all-rounders in the world, Ben Stokes is the second-leading run-getter for England in the tournament and has also been amongst the wickets. He has hit four fifties (including the 54-ball 79 in the last game against India) and has six wickets at an economy of 4.99.

Jofra Archer: The Barbados-born fast bowler has been England's star performer with the ball this World Cup. He is one of the tournament's best bowlers with 16 wickets at an economy of 5.01. He failed to pick up a wicket last time but is expected to hurt New Zealand with the new ball.

ENG Recent Form

After suffering two consecutive setbacks - against Sri Lanka and Australia - England pulled off a convincing 31-run win over India in their last match and have re-ignited their hopes of finishing in the top four. With 10 points in the bag, the hosts are currently sitting in the fourth place on the CWC 2019 points table after having won five and lost three out of eight matches. England were clinical with the bat last time out, posting a challenging total of 337 on the board.

New Zealand Team News & Playing 11

NZ Team News

New Zealand made a couple of changes to their side in their heavy defeat to Australia last time out; they dropped opener Colin Munro and fast bowler Matt Henry for Henry Nicholls and leg-spinner Ish Sodhi respectively. Nicholls failed to make the most of his opportunity being dismissed for 8 runs after consuming 20 deliveries, and it remains to be seen whether the Kiwis will give him another shot or bring back Munro. Matt Henry will likely return for this crucial encounter against England, if New Zealand decide to go in with just the one spinner in Mitchell Santner.

NZ Key Players

Kane Williamson: The New Zealand skipper is leading from the front and is one of the leading run-scorers in the tournament with 454 runs at a stunning average of 113.50. He has smashed a couple of centuries and a fifty and has not scored less than 40 in any match in this World Cup.

Lockie Ferguson: The fast bowler has taken the most wickets after Australia's Mitchell Starc in this World Cup - 17 wickets in seven matches at an economy of 4.96. He has taken at least one wicket in every game and picked up key scalps of David Warner and Steven Smith in his previous outing.

Trent Boult: New Zealand's premier pace bowler now has 13 wickets in seven matches at an economy of 4.55. Boult has a couple of four-wicket hauls in the tournament, the latest of which came in the last game against Australia at the Lord's where he became the first Kiwi bowler to take a World Cup hat-trick.

NZ Recent Form

New Zealand, with 11 points, are third on the CWC 2019 leaderboard with five wins, two losses and a washout from eight matches. After sharing points with India in the rained-out encounter at Nottingham, the Black Caps beat South Africa and the West Indies in back-to-back matches before suffering defeats in their last two matches - against Pakistan and Australia. New Zealand had a good outing with the ball last time, restricting the Aussies to 243/9, but an ordinary performance from their batsmen resulted in a heavy 86-run loss.

ENG vs NZ Dream11 Team Prediction

We have picked more players from England than New Zealand as the former stand a better chance of winning this match.


Jos Buttler is an explosive batsman but he generally bats too low down the order which is why we have picked Tom Latham in our team. Latham is yet to make a mark with the bat in this tournament but we are backing him to play a good knock in this match.


Joe Root and Kane Williamson are in sublime form and are the leading run-getters for their respective sides. Apart from these two, we have also picked Eoin Morgan and Jason Roy who smashed a half-century on his return from injury last time.


Our Dream11 line-up consists of two all-rounders in Ben Stokes and Jimmy Neesham. Stokes is the danger man with the bat due to his big-hitting skills and he can also provide breakthroughs with the ball at crucial junctures.


Jofra Archer has been in wicket-taking form for England this World Cup and there should be no hesitation in picking him. Lockie Ferguson is going great guns for the Black Caps and we have included him along with Liam Plunkett and Chris Woakes who is a big threat with the new ball.


We have picked Joe Root as the captain of our Dream11 team.


We have picked Kane Williamson as the vice-captain.

England vs New Zealand Prediction

This is a crucial game for both the teams as the winner will confirm a place in the semi-finals. England will be under slightly more pressure as they currently have 10 points in their kitty while New Zealand have 11. So a loss here for the home team will leave them in a rather precarious position. England, however, have garnered plenty of confidence after their fine win against India whereas the Kiwis have lost all their momentum with back-to-back losses. The hosts have fared well at this ground in ODIs and we are backing them to secure a couple more points and seal their semi-final spot.

Final Verdict

England to beat New Zealand at 1.39 with Betrally and 1.40 with Betway and Bet365.
