England (50 over) Runs 282/9 )
New Zealand (36.2 over / 283/ 1 )
New Zealand won by 9 wickets (with 82 balls remaining)
New Zealand started the World Cup with a bang at 9 pm. They found a new hero in Rachin Ravindra. Had Ferguson been fit, he might not have played. He has now made himself irresistible. Thanks for tuning in today. Until next time, this Devarayan Muthu is signing for Andrew Miller. Take care and cheers
8.40pm No Williamson. No Southee. No Ferguson. No Bracewell. No problem for New Zealand as they send defending champions England to Ahmedabad. NZ won the toss and restricted England's power-packed line-up to 282 for 9, thanks in no small part to Mitch Santner and Matt Henry. Sam Curran struck on his first ball to dismiss Will Young for a wicket. Conway scored a career-best 152* while Ravindra became New Zealand's youngest World Cup centurion at 23. Stay tuned for the post-match presentation.
Rachin Ravindra, Player of the Match: Sometimes it's unbelievable, but it's great to have a great day. The bowlers bowled well and got the lucky Devon out. I've spent a lot of time with Dev and we're very, very close mates. I was a bit more relaxed and had a lot of chats with Deb - great to be able to do that in between. For sure, if you ask us four-five years, we all knew what kind of player Dev would be. Like Hyderabad's warm-up matches, the surface was very good and pleasant to bat on.
Jos Buttler, England captain: A disappointing day. New Zealand will be heavily beaten and will have to take a tough loss. It's still a loss in a long tournament. I think a lot of the lads in our team have played a lot of cricket - we're not going to get too down on ourselves and get too high on the other side. I thought we were below par. We were aiming for somewhere around 330 and it [the pitch] was playing better under some light. We lacked clinicalness with your execution. Some dismissals were accurate shots but not properly executed. I think New Zealand played some great cricket shots and got great value for them. Devon Conway - Can't think of big shots but he scores quickly. He and Rachin made a great partnership together and we were well beaten. I think the pitch skied better under the lights but we played well below our best. Don't assume there are any questions around the route. He has been the best player in our team for a long time. We will wait and see (Ben Stokes?) Fingers crossed, he can be fit as soon as possible.
Tom Latham, New Zealand captain: Obviously, a great partnership between Rachin and Devon. From the 30-over mark, restricting them to 280 was superb. It's been a quick build up - Bangladesh warm up and boys. We played in these conditions a bit and I thought we adapted to the conditions pretty well. The two pacers - Henners and Boulty - did brilliantly and took wickets at crucial times. Restricting them to 280 was outstanding. Perhaps, the most pleasing thing was the way Devon and Rachin reacted to what was bowled. Rachin played a great innings and proud of him. Looking forward to getting close to her tonight.
Mitch Santner talks to Star Sports: Obviously, England are a tough opponent and probably a good one to win the toss. It looked like it skidded under the lights. Hats off to Devon and Rachin. Loki was hurt and it changed the balance of the team. Racine made the most of his opportunities and showed that he is a world-class player. These two love to bat together. They do it domestically and love it. We've seen Conway's quality for a while and Racine played well in the warm-up. They just want to keep batting, which is good for us. I thought we got wickets at important times and Matt Henry's wicket of Jos
