It's all on the England batsmen now - they need 242 runs to win the 2019 World Cup final on home soil at Lord's. Today we'll see a first-time champion crowned - hosts England or last time's losing finalists New Zealand. It's all set to be an unforgettable match and you can read on how to discover how to watch your England vs New Zealand live stream options for the Cricket World Cup final.

Having dominated one day cricket for the last few years, it will likely seem just reward to many cricket watchers should England win their first ever World Cup title at Lord's on Sunday. Their ruthless dismantling of Australia in the semi-final at Edgbaston showed a coolness under pressure that bodes well ahead of a game that offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for glory.

Standing in England's way of making it into the history books are a New Zealand side who will themselves have been buoyed by a glorious semi-final win. Having come through as underdogs in the semi-finals to beat India, arguably the tournament's strongest team, they too must fancy their chances at Lord's.

Live stream England vs New Zealand - where and when

The 2019 Cricket World Cup final takes place - wher else? - at the legendary Lord's in London.

Play began at 10.45am BST on Sunday, July 14 after a short delay. For those tuning in from New Zealand that's a 9.45pm NZST start. 

The match marks the the fourth time England have reached the final. Having beaten New Zealand in the group stage and with a partisan home crowd urging them on, Eoin Morgan's side unsurprisingly go into the match as clear favourites. Kane Williamson's side nevertheless have shown their capability for causing an upset with their win over India, and will be out to ensure they are not runners-up once again after losing the 2015 final to the Aussies.

England made relatively light work of the Kiwis in their round-robin stage clash earlier in the tournament, winning by 119 runs, with Jonny Bairstow smashing 106.

Key to any Black Caps' victory will be a good knock from Kane Williamson - an early takeout of the talismanic batsman will likely hand the trophy to the hosts.
