New Zealand’s Captain Kane Williamson has won the toss and elected to bat first against England in the ICC World Cup final at Lord’s on Sunday.
The toss has been delayed due to the drizzle, by a quarter of an hour (to 10.15am), and so has the start (to 10.45) of the final of the 2019 World Cup between England and New Zealand at Lord’s. There was a sharp downpour this morning, and the groundstaff need a bit more time to dry the coin. Only in England.
The umpires post inspection of the outfield and square decided that the toss would take place at 10.15 a.m. instead of 10 a.m. and the match would start at 10.45 a.m. instead of 10.30 a.m.
While it wasn’t a heavy outpour, the drizzle was a constant one. The forecast was for just clouds post 10 a.m. and there should be no problem in the game being started at 10.45 a.m.
England captain Eoin Morgan paid tribute to former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum ahead of his side’s ICC World Cup final against the Black Caps at Lord’s on Sunday (July 14).
