Preview –

England is the favorite to win this match from our point of view. This is the 5th match of this series and truth be told, its England that showed more dominance than New Zealand. The memory of the world cup is not that far where New Zealand basically shamed England but the British have bounced back and are looking more dominant than ever. They won the 4th ODI with ease and showed that they are ready to take this trophy to their home. They will be looking for something like their last match here as well.

New Zealand is barely hanging on. They are doing well in almost every match but they are just outclassed by their opponents. After the semi-final of cricket world cup, they haven’t been seen on form and they are loosing quite easily matches after matches. Perhaps the real problem lies with their mentality and they still haven’t recovered from the shock of loosing the world cup. What ever the cause is, they need to do better and go for the win. They will be playing this match as the underdogs.

Prediction –

We predict that England will win this match but the match will be close and anything is possible in a close match.
