Pitch Report & Toss Prediction:
The pitch at Birmingham is fairly balanced and not too one-sided. Both the departments will not get much help from the condition but at the same time, the team that wins the toss will look to bat first and put runs on the board.
New Zealand Team News:
New Zealand had an amazing 2015 World Cup where they won every match except the final against the Aussies. The 2017 Champions Trophy was a disappointing one for the Kiwi’s where they did not win a single match. This time they have decently balanced squad will be hoping to go further in the tournament. The team will be led by Kane Williamson, Tim Southee, and Trent Boul will form a deadly bowling pair.
