Chris Woakes will not be in contention and the selection process will be the showcase in the Champions Trophy after picking up a side strain against Bangladesh. Steve Finn has replaced him in the squad and the rest number of the matches will be displayed now.
Now England will be focusing on their bowling after Woakes injury and Jake Ball will be delivering their bowling as per expectation. The ball was smashed for 82 runs in his 10-over spell against Bangladesh; as a result, he can be dropped in front of Kiwis with David Willey and he will be also getting the chance to perform.
A lot will be depended on Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood which will be showcasing the England’s pace attack. Plunkett was the most impressive of all, and also he takes four wickets in the last match in his 10 overs. The young and talented leg-spinner Adil Rashid is likely to make his appearance in the tournament replacing Moeen Ali.
England’s destructive batting poses will be proved the threat for the opposite team. The depth in their batting and the ability to hit huge sixes at any stage of the game will be making them balanced in the New Zealand.
Jason Roy was the only player to get dismissed in single digits against Bangladesh and some stars like Alex Hales and Joe Root delivers extraordinary batting for the team England.
Captain Eoin Morgan’s blistering form and he are consecutively doing best balling since his last match. And with the likes of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Jonny Bairstow, having a great chance for their second match and make a spot in the semifinals of the Champions Trophy.
New Zealand, on the other hand, will be heading with a lot of confidence and their performance is also yet to see in the Australia for their first match. New Zealand scored a challenging 291 after Luke Ronchi and Kane Williamson show at Edgbaston, a magnificent century by Ronchi and crucial 72 runs by the captain so the Australia can be in pressure.
New Zealand batting line-up including Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Corey Anderson, is full of power-hitters and by this, the match can be easily turn around and with the struggling England bowling, we can see another run-feast on Tuesday.
But, New Zealand is hoped to perform well in their middle order after the late collapse they had against the Kangaroos. They might go with Tom Latham in the next match. The New Zealand bowling is somehow impressive as they take to pieces the Australian top-order at 57/3 before the rain gods played spoilsport forcing both teams to share points.
New Zealand pace attack — Tim Southee, Adam Milne, and Trent Boult will be having benefit from the conditions are expected to suit swing bowling. And it will be obvious to see that if the Kiwis go with Colin De Grandhomme in the next match, watching the pitch conditions.
A win will put New Zealand in the driving seat and they will be also qualified for the semi-finals match of the Champions Trophy 2017.
England: England’s top seven will remain same, including the out-of-form Jason Roy who Morgan gives continues to support even after his failure against Bangladesh, but there may be a change in the bowling attack to and it will also provide some interesting stuff in the first match.
The ball may be replaced by either the swing of David Willey or the pace and bounce of Steven Finn, and they also joined the squad as a replacement for Chris Woakes but there will likely the player Adil Rashid will be new for the team.
Probable XI: Moeen Ali, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Jake Ball, Steven Finn/David Willey, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler (WK).
New Zealand New Zealand could opt to bring back opener Tom Latham and he missed the game against Australia with injury although they perhaps can be loathed to move Ronchi down the order after his blazing 65 off 43 balls at Edgbaston. Corey Anderson looks most vulnerable having gone 13 ODI innings without a half-century and having Ronchi at number five would provide more balls in the middle order.
The seam attack can be strong too if conditions dictate with Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell McClenaghan the options.
Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Luke Ronchi (WK), Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Neil Broom, Corey Anderson/Tom Latham, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne, Tim Southee, Trent Boult
