The opening match of World Cup 2023 is less than 48 hours away and if you're looking for the England vs New Zealand head to head record, you're in the right place. 

England and New Zealand delivered arguably the greatest match when they clashed in the final of the previous World Cup edition. Now they are slated to kick off this edition with the curtain raiser on October 5th at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. 

The defending champions, captained by Jos Buttler, have shown good form in the build-up to this World Cup opener. Recently, they hammered New Zealand by 3-1 in a four-match series at home. However, their warm-up games in India haven't been ideal. The first game versus India was washed out without a ball being bowled and the second game against Bangladesh was also impacted by rain. England chased down 197 in 24.1 overs but lost six wickets and were in trouble at one point. 

New Zealand, on the other hand, are dealing with a few issues. They will be without their captain Kane Williamson for this game as continues his recovery. New Zealand are a side that always manages to exceed expectations in ICC tournaments. They did well in the warm-ups, chasing down 346 against Pakistan by five wickets and then beating South Africa by seven runs on DLS method.
