England enters the World Cup riding on the wave of five consecutive victories. Their recent form was on display against Bangladesh, chasing a total with ease in a rain-affected warm-up match. Conversely, New Zealand has also shown mettle, particularly with their recent triumph over South Africa in a match that unfortunately saw rain interruptions.

Narendra Modi Stadium promises a treat for batsmen, presenting a friendly wicket. Batsmen can capitalize by rotating the strike and meticulously building their innings. Contrarily, fast bowlers will need crafty variations to make an impact. Spinners, though, have an advantage; the wicket’s spin-friendly nature can pose challenges for the opposition batsmen.

Key Players to Watch

In the shifting dynamics of England's cricket team over the past four years, Adil Rashid remains a cornerstone. Only Moeen Ali has played more ODIs than Rashid since the 2019 final, and Rashid tops the wicket-taking chart. Although England boasts varied seam options, Rashid’s consistency is unmatched. The team's depth allows for alternatives if players like Jonny Bairstow or Dawid Malan falter, but there's truly no backup for Rashid’s invaluable role.
