Dream11 Prediction: New Zealand vs England Final Playing 11, Captain and Vice-Captain World Cup 2019

first_imgEngland will certainly start as favourites against New Zealand with perhaps the most destructive 50-over batting line-up comprising Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.However, New Zealand will leave no stone unturned to beat the hosts and claim their maiden World Cup title.Whichever team wins at Lord’s, a new World Champion will emerge on Sunday (or Monday if the game goes into a reserve day) as neither team has won the World Cup before. Curiously, the winner will also be only the 2nd side to have won the World Cup after losing more than 2 matches in the tournament.While both teams have quality bowling attacks, the batting of the New Zealand outfit is something that will definitely bother the Kiwis, especially the poor form of experienced opener Martin Guptill.BatsmenEngland’s opening pair of Jonny Bairstow (496 runs) and Jason Roy(426 runs) are occupying 7th and 10th position in the highest run-getters list. Considering their form, Bairstow and Roy must be the first names in your dream 11 team.Kane Williamson should be an automatic choice as the No.3 batsman with the New Zealand captain averaging over 90 in the tournament with 548 runs to his name already. In-form Ross Taylor and Joe Root can be good options to complete the batting list.All-roundersBen Stokes is averaging over 50 in this World Cup with the bat and 32.28 with the ball so he walks into the side 9 times out of 10.James Neesham is in the form of his life with bat and ball for New Zealand in this World Cup. He has already picked up a five-wicket haul in the tournament and has been decent with the bat whenever he has got the opportunity.advertisementWicket-keeperJos Buttler is currently the best batting keeper in the World Cup 2019. He has the ability to get going from the first delivery as he holds a strike rate of 130.41, which is the best among of all England batsman, who has played more than 5 innings.BowlersJofra Archer and Lockie Ferguson would be the best bets in the bowling lineup. Archer is the third in the list of highest wicket-takers in World Cup 2019 with 19 scalps off 10 games whereas Ferguson ranks 5th with just one wicket less than the English pacer.New Zealand’s Trent Boult should be your third pacer as he has taken 17 wickets off 9 matchesNew Zealand vs England Dream11 suggested Playing XI: Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Kane Williamson(VC), Joe Root, Ross Taylor, Ben Stokes (C), James Neesham, Jos Buttler, Jofra Archer, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.New Zealand vs England squads:England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, James Vince, Liam Dawson.New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Colin de Grandhomme, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult, Tom Blundell, Matt Henry, Colin Munro, Tim Southee.ALSO READ | New Zealand vs England, London Weather Forecast: Will rain play spoilsport in World Cup final?ALSO READ | World Cup 2019: England’s road to the finalALSO WATCH:last_img read more
