The stage is set for tonight’s Cricket World Cup final when New Zealand takes on tournament favourite England at the Lords Cricket Ground in London.

Both New Zealand and England have never won the ICC Cricket World Cup.

The closest New Zealand has ever come to winning the trophy was in 2015 when they were beaten by traditional rivals Australia.

New Zealand Coach Gary Stead says his team will have to play a smart and calculated match to win the tournament.

New Zealand beat India in a nail bitter of a semifinal by 18 runs to qualify for the finals.

England will be playing their first Cricket World Cup final in 27 years.

England Captain Eoin Morgan is ready for the final and looking forward to emulate the women team who won the world cup on the same field two years ago.

England beat Australia by 8 wickets in the semifinals to reach the final.

The final will begin at the historic 205 years old Lords Cricket Ground at 9.30 tonight.
