Previous Performance Review


If England thought that life would be easier once they left Melbourne they had better think again. The stadium Westpac the Cake Tin as it is known to people may not have the ability of the MCG but passionate followers 33,000 New Zealand ensure the atmosphere remains just as hostile.

In the elaboration of the two hosts of the World Cup in its first two games England were presented with a difficult start to the tournament. Either that his fragile confidence has recovered from the landslide in Melbourne still remains to be seen but if it is not the problem only will be aggravated on the one hand of New Zealand with ability belief and support to make it your year.

The difference in mentality between the teams is illustrated with its objectives. While England talk of trying to qualify for the quarter finals and then take it from there New Zealand are trying to win with a good rate of net screening to ensure that they qualify as high as possible in the group.

Although New Zealand have named their 11th  the same team that won their first two matches  England sent a side at the MCG which had never appeared together before and are keeping their options open ahead of this match.

Although New Zealand know that with two victories behind them another victory will give them one foot in the quarterfinals England will know that if they lose they have no margin for error that remains in the competition. Losing a match against a team associated or even rain and that they could be facing a way out embarrassingly early.

And while New Zealand look experienced with hunger and well balanced England look uncertain his team his tactics or his ability to win these types of games. Above all they are dependent on the experience in a small group of players of which not all are in the best of ways.
But while New Zealand is the main favorites entering the game the teams are really tied to 104 points on the leaderboard of the ICC.

New Zealand, however have two batters in the top 10 of the votes (Kane Williamson at six) and Ross Taylor eight while England has one in its top 20 (Joe Root to 15). England has three players in the top 20 ranking ODI (James Anderson at four, Steven Finn 12 and James Tredwell which is unlikely to play, at the age of 17) while in New Zealand highest rating is Kyle Mills, who is unlikely to play 20. Trent Boult, who seemed so dangerous against Scotland, has been reduced in number since 56.

Equipment news

New Zealand has confirmed that they will play the same eleven that beat Sri Lanka and Scotland. Although it might have been a temptation to rotate the squad this will be his third match in seven days McCullum gave satisfied with a team that featured aggression at the top of the order " Also have a well balanced offer attack swing pace and the left and right arm diversity. The only quarrel for change might have been giving some of the players of a game support where needed in a late stage of the tournament.

After having shaken their XI settled at the last moment before the Australia match anything can happen for decided this time. But it seems improbable England will make another change. Gary Ballance adds some strength to the batting and to miss the option offered by skills all horizon of Ravi Bopara, Joe Root may help few surpluses if necessary. Alex Hales has impressed the management of networks and Chris Jordan enjoyed a spell with the ball and the bat in practice but it is difficult to see a way of for any of them today.
