The series is poised at 1-1 as the 3rd One-day international is set to take place between England and New Zealand at Oval on 13th September. England looked in massive trouble before Liam Livingstone’s brilliance along with cameos by Sam Curran, Moeen Ali, and Jos Buttler helped the hosts post a decent total on the board. Reece Topley and David Willey picked 3 wickets rattling Kiwis winning the match comfortably by 79 runs.
New Zealand bought in Trent Boult into the playing XI and produced a magical opening spell before they could not capitalize and let England post a decent total. Daryl Mitchell was the top scorer for New Zealand but lost wickets in a heap to be bowled out cheaply.
Details– England vs. New Zealand, 3rd ODI
Venue– Kennington Oval, London
Date and Time– 13th September, 5.00 PM IST
It is a great pitch to bat on where they can play stroke freely and put enough pressure on the opponent bowlers. Fast bowlers can make use of the conditions to keep the batters guessing initially.
The team batting first has won only 30 times while the team batting second won on 42 occasions while three games have ended in no-result. It promises to be another high-scoring affair and provide entertainment to the crowds.
The captain that wins the toss would likely field first and then chase down the target. England and New Zealand have top-quality batting lineups that can put on an excellent display of batting.
