2:21 pm IST: The scene at the Cardiff Wales Stadium on match eve was not pleasant. Neither team could have an outdoors training session, with heavy rain confining them indoors throughout. The silver lining to those clouds is that the forecast for Tuesday is better. But the famously fickle English weather could still have a say in how this match ends.
2:09 PM IST: Both England and New Zealand are coming into the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 on the back of series wins, though England beating South Africa will admittedly give it greater confidence than New Zealand got out of beating Bangladesh and Ireland – though admittedly without most of its ODI core.
The last time these two sides met in a 50-over International Cricket Council event, New Zealand inflicted a humiliating eight-wicket defeat upon England in Wellington during the 2015 World Cup. (RESULTS | SCHEDULE)
Not content with dismissing England for 123, the Blackcaps raced to their target in a mere 12.2 overs, with then skipper Brendon McCullum hitting 77 off just 25 balls, including seven sixes.
One consolation for England is that Brendon McCullum has since retired from international cricket.
Tuesday’s match takes place against the backdrop of a terror attack in London on Saturday that killed seven people and injured dozens more
England pacemen Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett had to head down to Cardiff by bus after their cars were parked in a police exclusion zone near their London hotel.
