Hosts England will take on New Zealand in the final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Lord’s. The last two ODI World Cup finals have been won by home teams – 2011 by India and 2015 by Australia while the four ODI World Cup finals have been won by "away" teams at Lord’s. Therefore, it will be intriguing to see who will come out on top.

England have won seven of their last nine ODIs against New Zealand. However, New Zealand have defeated England in both the ODIs played at Lord’s. England’s record at Lord’s is of 5-5 in the last 10 ODIs while New Zealand’s win/loss record at Lord’s in ODIs is 3-1.

Kane Williamson vs Eoin Morgan - the battle of the skippers

Kane Williamson will be key for New Zealand as he currently holds the record of scoring most runs in an ODI World Cup among New Zealand batsmen and the joint most runs in an ODI World Cup among captains. However, Eoin Morgan has also played some crucial knocks for England this World Cup. He is the only player to hit 20-plus sixes in this World Cup so far.

Both Kane Williamson and Eoin Morgan have been instrumental with the bat. Will that continue in the final? (Stats: Umang Pabari)

England have the advantage but the big question still remains that will they be able to bring it back home in-front of the home crowd under pressure?
