47 matches and 46 days after ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 started, it all comes down to one match. England vs New Zealand may not be the World Cup final everyone imagined when the tournament kicked off at The Oval on May 30th, but no one would begrudge the two teams their day out in the sun — if the weather staus clear — at Lord’s on Sunday. History will be made, as neither England nor New Zealand have won the ICC Cricket World Cup before. New Zealand will be hoping to go one better than last time, when they lost in the final to Australia. England have made the World Cup final three times, and ended up as the losing side on all occasions. In 1979, they lost to the all conquering West Indies side, while in 1987, Gatting’s men lost to Alan Border-led Australia, to give the latter their first World Cup victory. But the defeat that will probably hurt them the most was against the Imran Khan-led Pakistan side in 1992, when they went into the final as the favourites. Eoin Morgan would want to succeed where Brearley, Gatting, and Gooch failed, and lift the trophy above his head, come end of the World Cup Final 2019.
England entered the tournament as favourites, and while their path through the league stage turned out to be tougher than they would’ve liked, a comprehensive victory against old rivals Australia in the semi-finals means England will fancy their chances against New Zealand in the final. The Kiwis, on the other hand, managed to scrape into the top four on net run rate, and find themselves in the final after edging out India in a low-scoring semi-final at Old Trafford. But England will underestimate New Zealand at their own peril, as Virat Kohli’s men discovered earlier this week.
