New Zealand Playing 11 vs England
New Zealand faces an early setback as their captain, Kane Williamson, won’t be able to play in the opening game against England. Williamson got a knee ligament injury during the IPL 2023, and he’s not completely ready for a full ODI game yet. He did well in the warm-up games, scoring a total of 91 runs from 101 deliveries.
To replace Kane Williamson, New Zealand can choose either Rachin Ravindra or James Neesham. Ravindra scored 97 runs in the warm-up games, which might make the management consider him over the experienced James Neesham.
In the absence of Williamson, Tom Latham will lead the team, and Devon Conway will open the innings alongside Will Young.
