Cardiff: Jun 16, 2013

The England-New Zealand ICC Champions Trophy 2013 Group A encounter at Cardiff on Sunday has been delayed due to rain.

Earlier, New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum won the toss and elected to field.

England need to beat New Zealand in order to qualify for the semi-finals.  The hosts have brought in James Tredwell in place of Graeme Swann. New Zealand have brought in Corey Anderson in place of Geoff Elliot.

New Zealand will be in a better state as they have a chance of qualifying even if they lose.
