Rain clears at Lord's ahead of World Cup final between England and New Zealand

A new cricket champion will be crowned on Sunday as England and New Zealand face off in the final of the Cricket World Cup at Lord’s.

The final is set to start at 2:30 pm.

While the morning at Lord’s was met with rain, skies have since cleared up.

New Zealand made it to the final after a dramatic win against India in the first semi-final of the tournament which went into a second day of play due to rain. England secured their place in the final following an 8-wicket victory against defending champions Australia in the second semi-final.

Neither side has won the World Cup before.

Probable teams:

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (captain), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Ken Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Jimmy Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.
