After a record breaking performance in the opening Royal London One-Day International at Edgbaston, England will be looking to take a 2-0 series lead in the second game against New Zealand at the KIA Oval this afternoon. Eventmasters are delighted to offer official Trent Bridge hospitality packages for the fourth ODI on Wednesday 17th June, along with official cricket hospitality packages for The Ashes.
While it seems unlikely that Eoin Morgan’s side will score 400+ runs for the second time in three days, they will be aiming to maintain the aggressive style of play which saw Joe Root and Jos Buttler both score centuries in 71 and 66 balls respectively. After a drab World Cup where they were bogged down by a conservative approach it was so refreshing to see players like Buttler and Adil Rashid throw off the shackles and really take it to the Kiwi’s.
Rashid who has long been thought of as a star of the future showed his quality, smashing 69 runs with the bat before taking 4-55 with the ball. Buttler’s superb 129 was the second fastest England ODI century in history. There is no doubt that the Black Caps will be looking to bounce back after a below par performance where they hardly troubled the hosts, with bat or ball. If Brendan McCullum can get in then he could easily take the game away from England in a hurry.
The third ranked ODI side in the world are set to recall fast bowler Tim Southee who performed so well in the World Cup and the recent test series. This game has the potential to be even more explosive than the first. With England riding a wave of confidence and New Zealand determined to show their class, we could see some big scores posted. Can England’s new dawn continue or will the Kiwi’s reassert their dominance?
