New Zealand vs England, Final - Live Cricket Score, Commentary || Live Match || Cricket
New Zealand weren't the most impressive side through the course, with issues aplenty. In fact, with rules other than NRR, the kind that Pakistan would've liked, they would've probably not even made it to the semis. When they lost, they lost badly, and when they won, in most cases it was simply a scrape through. But when it all bottles down to that one nerve-jangling moment in that one nerve-jangling match, recent history should leave them warmer of the two.
What England have to their favour in a match-up is the contest between their pace attack and New Zealand's under-firing batting line-up. Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes have been deadly with the new ball, backed-up well by Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood in the middle overs. New Zealand's batting, barring the occasional rescue acts by Colin de Grandhomme and James Neesham, has largely been shouldered by Williamson and Ross Taylor. The tournament is one game away from shutting shop, but the openers and Tom Latham are yet to find their footing, which makes England's attack, even in the absence of a left-armer exploiting the Lord's slope, potent.
