We’re set for an epic at the Cricket World Cup tonight as host nation England fight for survival and New Zealand attempt to stem a run of two-consecutive losses.
England seemingly got the campaign off to a strong start by beating South Africa on opening day, but that form certainly was not franked and disappointing losses to several nations have followed.
New Zealand were undefeated until they were stopped in their tracks by Pakistan early last week, before another loss to Australia compounded the result and ultimately saw the Blackcaps slip to third. They remain a mathematic chance of missing the final four, but it appears extremely unlikely.
Both teams are clearly eager to win and I think this will be a terrific contest. The Blackcaps are over the odds in head-to-head betting and I’m eager to take the value.
