ENGLAND Vs NEWZEALAND ICC ODI World Cup 2023, Cricket Live Score: Check Both The Squads
On Thursday, October 5, England will face New Zealand in the first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The game will be held in Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi stadium.
This will be a replay of the ICC World Cup 2019 final, which England won in exciting fashion. Eoin Morgan has handed over the baton to Jos Buttler, who will captain a magnificent side as the defending World Cup champions.
New Zealand will be without captain Kane Williamson in the first game because he has not fully recovered from his injury. In Williamson's absence, the Black Caps will be led by Tom Latham.
The match will mostly pit New Zealand's star-studded batting against England's aggressive batting unit, which includes Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Joe Root, and Jos Buttler. Another topic of discussion will be who bowls the fastest ball between Lockie Ferguson and Mark Wood.
