The first one day international match of New Zealand tour of England 2015 is going to start today and after seeing a cracker of a test series earlier which unfortunately ended at a tie both the teams will give their every bit to get the better of each other. In this tournament about 5 ODI’s will be played between both the sides and we are hoping to see full matches without any kind of rain delay. English side has a lot of gain from this competition after they gave a very shameful performance in the recently held ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in which they got eliminated in the group stages. They faced a lot of criticism after that from the media and its a great chance for them to find their own identity.
The toss for the first one day international 2015 between ENG vs NZ has already happened and New Zealand has won the coin battle after which they have chosen to field first. The weather condition are quite good here but we are expecting some little showers at regular intervals. Speaking about the pitch we here are hoping for a high scoring game and after the Skipper Brendon McCullum and his boys have won the toss so they will definitely have a upper hand in this game for sure.
