England vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Match Prediction – Who’ll Win?

After a 2-2 tie in the T20I series, England vs New Zealand will face off in a four-match ODI series starting on Friday, September 8 at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Even though they were up 2-0 in the T20I series. England would be disappointed that they were unable to win it. The Jos Buttler-led team will therefore be eager to humiliate the Kiwis and start their World Cup preparations.

The hosts were defeated by 74 runs and six wickets in the last two games, respectively, as a result of New Zealand’s stunning comeback. Notably, the Kiwis enjoy an advantage over England in one-day internationals, having defeated them 43 times out of 91 games. Therefore, they’ll try to keep up their winning streak and further extend their lead.
