Having finished as the runner-ups four years ago, fourth-ranked New Zealand will look for a repeat of what they did in the previous edition of the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup when they head into this year's mega event, which is slated to take place in England and Wales from May 30 to July 14. 

Despite being one of the strongest performers at cricket’s biggest event, New Zealand have never managed to cross the mark and pick the World Cup glory in eight appearances they made since their inception. 

New Zealand, who have made it to the semi-finals six times and the final four years ago, will definitely look to know how it feels to be a winner when they go into 2019 edition of the cricket's showpiece event.

As far as squad is concerned, fit-again Kane Williamson was named as the captain in the 15-member New Zealand squad while the likes of Martin Guptill, Colin Munro and Trent Boult boasting stacks of experience were also included for the World Cup.

Ross Taylor, whose good form with the bat off-late has moved him to the third position in the ICC ODI rankings, has also been named in New Zealand's World Cup squad.

On Saturday,  New Zealand defeated India by six wickets in their first warm-up match for the ICC World Cup at the Oval in London.

The Williamson-led side will play their second warm-up match against West Indies on May 28 before kickstarting their campaign against Sri Lanka on June 1.
