Cardiff: Jun 16, 2013

Alastair Cook-led England take on Brendon McCullum’s New Zealand in a do-or-die Group A match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 at Cardiff on Sunday.

Stunned by an inspired Sri Lanka in their last game, hosts England find themselves in a spot of bother when they take on New Zealand in a must-win Group A match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 at Cardiff on Sunday.

England, one of the strong contenders for the trophy, had themselves to blame as their strong bowling attack failed to defend an imposing 293 for seven against Sri Lanka.

The English bowling attack, termed as second best in the competition aftRer Pakistan, came a cropper against Sri Lanka the other day as Kumar Sangakkara hit an unbeaten century to ensure an emphatic seven wicket win for the island nation with 17 balls to spare.
