India will face New Zealand in the first semi-final of the current World Cup on Wednesday. Team India is entering the home field from the front. However, the Indian camp is extra cautious before going down against Kane Williamson. The memories of the last World Cup are still fresh inside the Indian team. Bharti is planning to kill New Zealand by learning from that mistake. Team management goes without saying. Only time will tell which captain’s face will be victorious in the end.
Team India has kept its undefeated record intact in this year’s World Cup stage. The Indian team has won all 9 matches of the league stage. Indian team also defeated New Zealand there. Along with that, Indian team’s batsmen and bowlers are in devastating form. In the last few matches, no cricketer could raise his head in front of the batsmen and bowlers of the Indian team. Bowling.com has the likes of Mohammed Sami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja in devastating form.
Similarly, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Lokesh Rahul and Shreyas Iyer continue to show their best performance with the bat. Shreyas Iyer played a century innings against Netherlands in the last match as well. Along with this, Lokesh Rahul also scored his second century on the World Cup stage. Virat Kohli, Rohit Rama also scored runs with the bat. Also, Mohammed Sami, Jasprit Bumrah are in excellent form.
On the other hand, New Zealand is also in good form in this World Cup. From Rachin Ravindra to Trent Boult, Team Southies are in rhythm. Mitchell Santner, Devon Conway are also giving good performances. It remains to be seen whether they can maintain that trend against the Indian team.
This year’s pitch at Wankhede Stadium has gone most of the time in favor of the batters. However, it goes without saying that batting on this pitch at Alor Beach is causing quite a problem. Batting first, close to 340 could be the run to win. It is believed that after winning the toss, the captain can decide to bat first.
