Although New Zealand did not win any of the ICC cricket World cups until now, however, they have progressed into the Final multiple times in the history of world cups.

New Zealand faced Australians in the Final, despite their victories throughout the World Cup, they could not make it to the Final. Finally, Australia crumbled them in the Final with a massive margin of 7 wickets. Currently, the New Zealand cricket team is not really up to the Mark they once were. However, they have acquired some players like Williamson, Guptill and Trent Bolt who helped New Zealand cricket Team to touch the new heights of limited over cricket.

In the captaincy of Williamson, New Zealand Cricket Team has revamped the way they adopt in the field which might help them to progress in the ODI ranking.
The players Like ROSS TAYLOR, MARTIN GUPTILL, WILLIAMSON, and TRENT BOULT will be their frontline players to smash the opponents in the coming world cup as recently they have shown how they took the match away single-handedly. in the recent series, all these players have shown what they are popular for.
In addition to that, they have strengthened the batting Line up as it was collapsed after the retirement of McCollum then comes to the aggressive and fiery batsman Colin Munro, who has the potential to keep the momentum up from the early overs. He will be joining Guptill to start the Inning. This incredible opening pair can be a nightmare for the opponents. The only thing they need to conscious about is their spin department. Though they have versatile spinners but the quality of bowling, a spin department demands to tackle the opponents is missing here in the team.
On the other side, the Afghan team has its first World Cup appearance. But the way they qualified for the World Cup by beating the West Indies team. The Afghan teams’ strength is their spin bowling attack. They have the right combination of bowling which can break the top batting order of any team in no time.

Not only the spinner but Seamers also had to play their role on the flat tracks of England. They also have the batting order with an amazing hitter Muhammad Shehzad. He is in form and he can cause serious harm to the bowling line of any team.
