New Zealand were off to a steady start against hosts England in their second successive final of the ICC Men’s World Cup at Lord’s on Sunday.

The Kiwis won the toss and opted to bat first. They scored 91 at the end of the 20th over with the loss of a wicket. Henry Nicholls and Kane Williamson were batting at 40 and 27 respectively. 

Martin Guptill scored 19 off 18 balls with two fours and one six before he was trapped lbw by Chris Woakes.
