England Vs New Zealand ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Final: The bad weather in England has played a spoilsport in several games including the first semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand. Prior to the semi-final, as many as as four games were washed-out due to rain or wet outfield. All the eyes are on the weather in London where much-awaited final will be played between tournament pre-favorites England and New Zealand.

The weather gods have predicted a clear weather on Sunday, saying that no rain is expected and the temperature will be between 21 to 23 degree celsius. Unlike, earlier games, they have forcast the clear skies throughout the game. So the spectators do not need to worry, they will be enjoying a full 50-over match.

Earlier, the overcast conditions have proved to a be nightmare for teams like Pakistan which faced a World Cup exit with 11 points. Their one match against Sri Lanka was rained out. Pakistan would have made it to the semi-finals, had they won the clash. They were knocked out of the tournament after winning five games out of nine. Even the first semi-final was moved into the reserve day which proved fatal for India and beneficial for Kiwis bowlers.

Meanwhile, both England and New Zealand have never won the World Cup title despite reaching to the finals several times. Kiwis will be playing World Cup final for the second consecutive time. They lost to Australia in a one-sided match in 2015.
