  • Up till today’s date, Canada and New Zealand cricket team have only encountered each other on the cricket world cup battle field only twice.
  • 1979 Cricket World Cup, both Canadian cricket team and New Zealand cricket team participated but they did not play a match against each other.  Both teams were in different groups.  New Zealand made it to the semi finals where as Canada didn’t even make it to the knock out stage. New Zealand cricket team played incredibly well against English cricket team giving them a tough time but failed to make it to the finals.
  • New Zealand cricket team has been more consistent than Canada when it comes to participating in world cups.  In 1992 Cricket World Cup, New Zealand cricket team again made it to the semi finals reflecting the element of competitive team spirit.
  • In the Cricket World Cup 2003, both these teams belonged to the same pool. New Zealand cricket team received a trouble-free victory over Canada in just 23 overs after fulfilling the given target of 196 runs with 3 overs still in hand.
  • For the second time, New Zealand cricket team played against Canada in the ICC Cricket World cup 2007 when both the teams were again in the same group. New Zealand won by 114 runs which again seemed like an effortless triumph. As a result of this, Canada failed to qualify for the super 8 stage.

 In 2011 cricket world cup match, New Zealand scored very high. Batting first, they put a total of 358 on the board. It was a formidable total even for a team stronger than Canadian cricket team. Another important point was the fact that New Zealand also had a strong balling line up as well. As a result, the Canadian cricket team could only score 261 in 50 overs at the loss of 9 wickets. As it was a high scoring game, it was an entertaining match to watch.
