England vs New Zealand: Durham Weather Update, Riverside Pitch Report and Stadium Records
For the upcoming clash between England and New Zealand, the weather is predicted to be partly cloudy. So mornings, afternoon and even the evenings are subjected to clouds.
After defeating India by 31 runs, hosts, England are all set to take on New Zealand in their last match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Riverside Country ground in Chester-Le-Street Durham on July 3 at 3 pm. Eoin Morgan and his men, who are currently at the fourth position on the points table, will have to win their upcoming match, if they want to secure their semi- final spot. However, even after failing to register a win, England can still qualify if Bangladesh beat Pakistan but lose to India. Meanwhile, Kane Williamson-led New Zealand, who have lost two consecutive matches, will look forward to regain their dominance on field while sealing their own spot in semis.
For the upcoming clash between England and New Zealand, the weather is predicted to be partly cloudy. So mornings, afternoon and even the evenings are subjected to clouds. The maximum temperature estimated is 19 degree Celsius and 10 degree Celsius is estimated to be the lowest.
Pitch at Riverside is more suitable for batting as seen in the previous Sri Lanka vs West Indies match. However, if take previous fixtures into consideration then team batting second have won four of the last five matches. So, the team winning the toss might opt to bat first but with West Indies losing the previous match, captains of both sides will rely heavily on weather conditions to make a decision.
Scheduled at Riverside, this is the last ICC World Cup 2019 match at this venue.. One of the interesting fixture to be held at this venue will be England's clash with 2015 World Cup runner-up New Zealand.
Also known as Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground, this venue was first established in 1995 and can accommodate up to 5,000 people. However, the capacity can be extended to 17,000 for international tournaments. The first match played at this ground was between Durham and visiting New Zealanders in 1992. However, an international stadium was constructed soon after some infrastructural development. So in 1999, Durham hosted their first ever World Cup match between Pakistan and Scotland. Following this, the next year this venue also staged England NatWest Series game.
So if we take a look at the ODI statistics, then this venue has staged 16 matches in total. Out of it, 5 times the team batting first have won while the team chasing has triumphed 9 times. This venue hasn’t witnessed any tie breaker as of yet.
