New Zealand suddenly fell from the mountain. They were an unbeaten team in this World Cup just a week ago and now their situation is totally dull as they lose two consecutive matches against Pakistan and Australia. New Zealand will face host England in their next game in ICC World Cup 2019. It will be a big challenge to them especially for their confidence issues as their semi-final berth is almost secured.

Black Caps stars who must need to gear up to back in winning ways

Although Kiwis all but secured their semi-final spot but alarm already ringing after their consecutive losses. The match against Pakistan and Australia exposed their weaknesses. Now, it’s up to them to find back their mojo as the semi-final stage are looming soon.

On the other hand, England comfortably beat India by 31-runs in their last game and get back their confidence. English players will surely try to beat the Kiwis to confirm their semi-final berth.

Here, we want to discuss a few players of NZ who can fight back and bring out a positive result against the host England.

  • Kane Williamson

The ”Captain Cool” of New Zealand failed to justify his coolness as his team poorly surrendered to Pakistan and Australia. Since the beginning of the tournament, Kane Williamson is the main pillar for New Zealand in their batting lineup. Although his team failed to bring out a positive outcome from their last two games, the captain played good innings as usual and it’s easy to assume his team will rely on him again versus England.

Kane Williamson has to lead from front row against England.
  • James Neesham

Another reliable batsman for the Black Caps. James Neesham is the best hope for Kiwis in their middle order. If English pacers can make damage on Kiwis openers and top order the main responsibility to carry the team will fall on him. He is a proven player who can take responsibility.

  • Trent Boult

Trent Boult should loose his bolt against England. As English batsmen especially their openers already showed how much danger they can possess if they settle on the crease. They will show no mercy and if in case, if England gets batting first, they will surely try to make a big score and NZ players could find it difficult to chase it. The responsibility will be huge over Trent Boult. He took 4 wickets against Australia. Its time he should show up again and prove his worth to get back his team on the track.

Trent Boult is the main hope for NZ against mesmerizing English batsmen.

Although New Zealand was unbeaten in most of the part in this World Cup, their overall performances were not that convincing. Finally, their weaknesses get exposed versus Pakistan and New Zealand. Despite they almost secured their place in semi-finals, this is the match which will be a catalyst of their confidence ahead of the round-robin stage.
