England will be out in the field to defend their crown when they take on New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2023 opener at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium on Thursday, October 5. Jos Buttler-led side will be facing the team they beat in the 2019 edition final and will be looking for a positive result to open their campaign on high morale.
New Zealand management has decided to rest their star batter and captain Kane Williamson for the first game while the Three Lions might miss their star all-rounder Ben Stokes. Tom Latham will be leading the Kiwis who produced dominating performances in the warmup matches. Buttler might go with Harry Brook for the no.4 position to keep Stokes fresh for the rest of the tournament.
England enter this game as favourites having lost just one of their last five ODI encounters against New Zealand but the latter's performance in the practice games will surely take the game to the wire.
