This match is a must win for England to progress to the semi-final stage. Alastair Cook’s men will be eliminated from the tournament if they lose to the Kiwis, regardless of the result in the final game of the group – between Australia and Sri Lanka. England currently sit in 2nd place and a victory will enable them to acquire the top spot in group. England side would need Stuart Broad to step up now who has had a poor tournament so far. The probable English lineup will include: 1 Alastair Cook (capt), 2 Ian Bell, 3 Jonathan Trott, 4 Joe Root, 5 Eoin Morgan, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Ravi Bopara, 8 Tim Bresnan, 9 Stuart Broad, 10 Graeme Swann, 11 James Anderson.
New Zealand currently sits in 1st and a win will put them through to the semi while a loss will mean they have to rely on Australia narrowly beating Sri Lanka. Martin Guptill had a fantastic series against England only a few weeks ago and will be looking to repeat the same performance in this fixture. The likely Kiwi squad will include: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Luke Ronchi, 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Ross Taylor (capt), 5 James Franklin, 6 Brendon McCullum, 7 Daniel Vettori, 8 Nathan McCullum, 9 Doug Bracewell, 10 Kyle Mills, 11 Mitchell McClenaghan.
