On Thursday at 14:00 local time, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the 2023 Cricket World Cup. ( England and New Zealand ).

The 132,000-seat facility is a suitable location for the opening of this competition. And Match 1 will feature a matchup between the two tournament winners from 2019. In July 2019, England and New Zealand squared off in a historic encounter at Lord’s that resulted in a tie before England went on to win the tied Super over thanks to more boundaries scored during the main portion of play! Continue reading as we preview this World Cup match’s opening game.

England is the holder of this World Cup as well as the T20 World Cup and has one of the best batting line-ups in the tournament. They will expect a tough match but will be confident of victory over New Zealand.

New Zealand have once again brought a strong squad to a World Cup but they have struggled against England in this format in recent times. We expect them to be competitive but they will need to be at their best to win.
