New Delhi: Live Streaming Cricket, England vs New Zealand at Hotstar and Star Sports: We are at the business end of the tournament and three semi-final spots are still vacant. England, after beating unbeaten India by 31 runs in their last encounter, are high on confidence and will eye a semi-final berth when they take on New Zealand in Durham in a World Cup 2019 league stage match on Wednesday.New Zealand, who are one point above England and are sitting in third place, have suffered back-to-back setbacks against Pakistan and Australia. Even a defeat would not spell the end of either team’s chances of emerging as one of the top four from the 10-team round-robin phase. Were England to lose in Chester-le-Street, Pakistan could leapfrog them into the top four with victory over Bangladesh. Given that they play each other in their final pool match, only one of Bangladesh — who also still have to face India — or Pakistan can draw level with New Zealand in the event the Black Caps lose on Wednesday.ICC World Cup 2019, 41st match: England vs New ZealandWhat time does the live coverage of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash between England vs New Zealand start?The 41st match of the ICC World Cup 2019 between England vs New Zealand will start at 03:00 PM IST.Where will the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash between England vs New Zealand be played?The clash between England vs New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street.Where to watch online live streaming of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 game between England vs New Zealand?You can watch the live streaming of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash between England vs New Zealand on Hotstar from 03.00 PM onwards.When is the game between England vs New Zealand in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019?The game between England vs New Zealand in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played on Wednesday, July 3.Where can I check the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash between England vs New Zealand?You can follow Live updates and Live Score on english.newsnationtv.com.

New Delhi: After getting knocked out of 2019 World Cup, the men-in-blue are set to travel West Indies for a full bilateral series which is scheduled to begin on August 3. The sudden semi-final exit have led the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to look for some answers from the skipper and management. It is reported that Virat Kohli along with the head coach Ravi Shastri will meet Committee of Administration (CoA) to discuss World Cup stint.Further, the Indian selectors will meet on Friday, 19 July to pick the squad for the Windies tour and since the limited-overs series is scheduled before the Tests, the Dhoni question will have to be answered soon enough. Although sources close to the BCCI recently indicated that the former India captain MS Dhoni will not be an automatic choice again and is less likely to board the Caribbeans-bound flight but yet there is no finality on that issue.The first two T20Is will be played at Lauderhill in Florida, United States, and the first match is scheduled on August 3.“The selectors will meet in Mumbai on July 19. We have not heard from Dhoni but what is relevant is the communication between the player and selectors. If you ask me, Dhoni did well in the World Cup but he is his own man. Only he can decide whether he wants to carry on or not,” India Today cited reports quoting a BCCI official as saying following after the Committee of Administrators’ meeting in New Delhi.It is reported that Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to miss the limited overs series and return during the Tests which starts from August 22. The two Test-series will be a part of the inaugural Test Championship. There are also contradictory reports that Kohli might as well play the full tour after a disappointing conclusion to the World Cup campaign.With this, BCCI may well be tempted to try some new faces which eventually gives them a chance to build the squad for 2023 World Cup. It is highly likely that Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, and Khaleel Ahmed will find their name into the squad in place of Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, and Jasprit Bumrah. Kedar and Dinesh had a forgettable run during the course of the tournament which makes their selection case weak.  highlightscenter_img India will tour West Indies for full series. Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to miss the limited overs series. New Zealand upstaged India in World Cup semi-final. last_img read more

first_imgCANTERBURY, England (CMC) – Rookie left-hander Shimron Hetmyer shone but opener Kraigg Brathwaite suffered his third straight failure as the three-day tour game against Kent finished in a draw here yesterday.Before lightning and bad light ended play abruptly, West Indies were enjoying batting practice and had reached 132 for four at the Kent County ground.They slumped to 50 for three before the 20-year-old Hetmyer stroked an enterprising unbeaten 43 while Shai Hope got 30 and opener Kieran Powell, 23, to lead the Caribbean side’s revival.Brathwaite, however, fell without scoring to follow up his first-innings eight and two in the second innings of the opening tour game against Essex at Chelmsford.Opener Kieran Powell once again got a start with 23 but failed to carry on.Seamer Charlie Hartley was among the wickets with two for 44 to follow up his first-innings four-wicket haul.Batting coach Toby Radford said afterwards the Windies batsmen had received a good workout during the contest.“Kent bowled in good areas and kept coming at us,” the Englishman said.“They swung it away to the right-handers and whenever we batted in this match there was cloud cover and a little bit of juice around.”Trailing by 66 after Kent declared their first-innings on 331 for nine in the final over of the previous day, West Indies were quickly in trouble following an 80-minute delayed start due to rain when they lost Brathwaite – caught at the wicket off Hartley in the second over with one run scored.With the score on 24, seamer Matt Hunn claimed Kyle Hope also to a catch at the wicket for nine as West Indies slipped further.Shai Hope then anchored two small partnerships to halt the slide, putting on 26 for the third wicket with Powell and a further 38 for the fourth with Hetmyer.The left-handed Powell had faced 59 balls and struck two fours when he too was taken at the wicket, this time off left-arm quick Adam Ball and Shai’s innings ended when he was caught at cover off Hartley.Hetmyer and Jermaine Blackwood, who finished unbeaten on 18, then came together to add 44 and deny Kent any further success.Hetmyer, who made his Test debut recently against Pakistan, faced just 39 balls and counted seven fours and a six.West Indies will face Derbyshire in their third three-day tour game starting Friday in Derby.

first_imgNorwich 2 QPR 1Grant Holt’s 73rd-minute goal gave Norwich victory at Carrow Road.The striker bundled home fellow substitute Wes Hoolahan’s right-wing cross only three minutes after the pair were brought on.AdChoices广告Norwich had taken the lead when Anton Ferdinand’s miscued clearance from Andrew Surman’s corner fell to Russell Martin, who smashed home.Ferdinand had earlier been rescued by Radek Cerny after the defender’s hesitation gave Steve Morison a sight of goal.Third-choice keeper Cerny played because Paddy Kenny, whose deputy Brian Murphy is sidelined, was himself ruled out with a muscle problem.Rangers were denied permission by the Premier League to sign a keeper on an emergency loan deal ahead of the game after learning that Kenny could be out for several weeks.Without Kenny and captain Joey Barton, who was suspended, the R’s battled spiritedly and equalised just after the hour mark, when Luke Young netted from the rebound after Jamie Mackie’s shot hit the post.But seconds after having a header blocked on the line by Shaun Derry, Holt was set up by Hoolahan for the winner.“I feel like we should have won that game,” said R’s boss Neil Warnock.“At half-time I said to the players I’d be disappointed if we drew, never mind lost. I feel robbed.“But then when you defend like we did, you probably don’t deserve to win. For the second goal we had chances to clear the ball.“The disappointing thing for me is that Norwich didn’t have to work for the goals – they were given them.”last_img read more
