New Zealand – Brazil Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

The defending champions Australia were absolutely manhandled by the hosts at Edgbaston. Everyone expected England to be in the final and here they are, ready to keep the coveted trophy in England. But after a lot of twist and turns, their qualification was guaranteed only after winning the last league game. England entered the tournament with the tag of being the firm favorites. But the momentum they got with late victories helped them in the semi-final. Lets find out who will win the world cup 2019 final between New Zealand vs England today match prediction.

We have picked Mitch Santner and Jimmy Neesham as well because both of them will bowl most of their quota of overs and can bat also. All-rounders: Ben Stokes is back to bowling in every match and has also been the best batsman for England in the tournament up until now. Santner could be given the new ball in an effort to get Roy early.

The whole world will keep an eye to welcome the newest rulers of the game. One of these teams will be crowned for the first time in history. The biggest game of the cricketing world at the Mecca of cricket the Lords, it just doesnt get more royal than this. The time has arrived to find out the new champions in cricket.

India have been dealt a big blow as Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the World Cup for three weeks due to a fractured thumb. Since overcast conditions are expected at the Trent Bridge, India may consider bringing in Mohammed Shami in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The opening batsman sustained the injury while batting in the last match against Australia. Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik are the two probable replacement options for Dhawan and one of them will have to bat at number four as KL Rahul is likely to partner Rohit Sharma at the opening position.

India, on the other hand, are coming on the back of impressive wins over two very strong contenders for the title - South Africa and Australia. The Black Caps have not been pushed much until now and it won't be wrong to say that their real World Cup campaign begins from this game. They also have plenty of momentum with them having won their first three matches on the bounce. However, all three of those encounters have come against weaker oppositions - Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. New Zealand crushed India when the two teams faced each other in a warm-up match before the start of the World Cup and the Kiwis have a big psychological advantage from that win.

The Kiwis have made a perfect start to their World Cup campaign, winning each of their first three games, and are leading the league standings with six points. They decimated Sri Lanka by ten wickets in their opening game at Cardiff, then pipped Bangladesh by two wickets in a close encounter at London before brushing aside Afghanistan with a seven-wicket win at Taunton. They have won 10 out of their 14 one-day internationals this year including the last six straight. New Zealand have been very impressive in the game's 50-over format over the last couple of years.

Both have taken five wickets apiece and that too at very healthy economy rates of under 5. Jasprit Bumrah, the world's best ODI bowler, along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the bigger threats since conditions will be conducive to seam bowling. Yuzvendra Chahal has been India's top performer with the ball so far with six wickets in two games. The leg-spinner derailed the South African innings with a four-wicket haul and picked up two key Australian scalps last time.

At least two and possibly more out of these batsmen should be able to make a significant contribution in this match. Manchester is a good batting pitch and these players are going to be leading the attack for their teams. We would advise against picking him as captain since that is going to be the obvious move. Batsmen: This is where we have spent the bulk of our points quota. We have selected Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson, Virat Kohli, and Ross Taylor, and Lokesh Rahul, Henry Nicholls are all in our team for this match. Rohit Sharma is just in terrific form and has to be picked.

India will dearly miss their opener Shikhar Dhawan who returned to full flow against the Aussies, but they still have enough firepower in the tank to overcome the New Zealand pace threat. This will be one of those contests in which the team that bats better will emerge victorious and India's superior batting strength makes them the favorites to win this battle.
