England's fluctuating form has been the subject of much debate across the cricket world and they need to beat third-placed New Zealand to guarantee their progression in the Cricket World Cup 2019. If England lose, they will rely on Bangladesh beating Pakistan on Friday. You can follow live coverage of England versus New Zealand through live streaming, live TV and live cricket score. England vs New Zealand is scheduled to start at 3 PM IST at Chester-le-Street on July 3 (Wednesday). (FULL COVERAGE) (ENG v NZ HIGHLIGHTS) (SCORECARD)
England will have their tails up after defeating India by 31 runs at Edgbaston on Sunday. Jonny Bairstow's century and his 160-run opening wicket stand with Jason Roy laid a solid platform for England to score 337/7 in their 50 overs. The duo will face a trial by pace and swing when they face New Zealand bowlers, spearheaded by hattrick hero Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson.

New Zealand, who had a great start to the tournament and looked certain to make the semifinals, put themselves in a hole after losing back to back matches against Pakistan and Australia. Against the Aussies, Kiwi batsmen failed to come good and given England's quality of attack, Kane Williamson's team will have to bring out their best against the hosts. New Zealand have been too reliant on Williamson and that's the team's weakest point.
