ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023- New Zealand vs England 1st Match Prediction Who will win today’s match?

On October 5, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the ICC Cricket World Cup’s opening match would pit New Zealand vs England. England appears to be in excellent shape for the World Cup as they have not lost any of their last five games. On the other hand, New Zealand has played well lately, winning both of their most recent matches.

Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat when England faced them in their most recent match, a World Cup warm-up game. Bangladesh got off to a rough start as they cheaply lost two of their wickets, but Tanzid and Mehidy were able to calm the situation. They scored 188 runs in a rain-affected contest of 37 overs per side, but as the partnership ended, they started losing wickets once more. England easily defeated their opponent by four wickets by chasing down this total without breaking a sweat.

In their most recent game, New Zealand faced South Africa and decided to bat after winning the toss. Following a respectable opening stand, New Zealand went on to have a run of outstanding partnerships. With nearly their whole batting lineup significantly contributing. They scored a substantial total of 321 runs, to which South Africa responded by losing a wicket early but recovering effectively with the next wicket. Rain, however, prevented the game from continuing and forced its suspension; New Zealand went on to win by a score of 7 runs.

ENG vs NZ Best Performers:

The Best Batter:

Devon Conway – (New Zealand): Devon Conway, one of the most consistent batters across formats, will be crucial for the Kiwis at the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. He sets the stage for big hitters like Daryl Mitchell and Glenn Phillips by batting deep. New Zealand hopes to start well, and Conway is their best shot.

The Best Bowler:

Mark Wood  – (England): The tall fast bowler has great speed and can make things happen on even the flattest pitches. England will have a great wicket-taker if he can stay healthy during the event. Wood can get wickets at any point in a game and is impactful in ICC ODI World Cup 2023, which will boost the confidence of England’s captain Buttler and the fans.
