Kane Williamson breaks another record at World Cup

World Cup captains gather round pre-tournament for

World Cup finals tend to be low-scoring matches and this is likely to be no exception, if previous matches at Lord's are anything to go by.

England and New Zealand will meet at Lord's on Sunday to compete for their first Cricket World Cup trophy. After all, World Cup final appearances feel a rarity in the world of men's sport. Two consecutive World Cup finals is an awesome achievement for that group and they'll have some experiences to take out of that last final, whereas none of the England players have played in a final before.

In contrast, New Zealand played in the final of the 2015 edition.

Despite shock losses against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia, tournament favourites and top-ranked ODI side England finished third before resoundingly beating defending champions Australia by eight wickets in the semi-final.

Onyekuru, Osimhen could play against Algeria, says Rohr
Algeria must be hoping to dispatch the Super Eagles early but that could just play into Nigeria's smart play. It would take a huge effort to knockout this rampant Algeria side, thus Nigeria need to bring their A game.

"I think it's important to recognise the work that has been done and the foundations that have been laid". If you ever get ahead, it always seems to bite you in the backside.

Kane Williamson - New Zealand captain: "I think England rightly so deserve to be favourites". Coming into this tournament from the start, they were favourites and they've been playing really good cricket.

"But at the same time there's a real commitment to that which is a really positive thing and it's held us in good stead to this point, so the focus for us is about the cricket that we want to play and we want to be proud of the performance that we put on the board".

The next question was a bit weird as a British journalist asked whether he loves winning more or does he hate losing, Williamson curtly replied: "I prefer winning than losing (smiling)".
