IND vs NZ: New Zealand will lock horns against India in 1st Semi-Final of the ICC Cricket World Cup, 2023 on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
India is the only team that remained undefeated in the group stage, winning all nine matches they played. Most of their matches were one-sided, thanks to their brilliant batting and bowling. They enter this game with the sole aim of avenging the heartbreaks they suffered against New Zealand back in 2019.
Team India, led by a potent top order including Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer, brings a surge of confidence into this game.
Supported by the formidable trio of Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah in the bowling department, along with Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja, they aim to continue their winning spree and advance to the finals.
New Zealand, on the other hand, clinched a semifinal berth by winning five of their nine matches, securing the fourth position on the points table. The team began the tournament strongly with four consecutive wins but encountered a tough phase with four back-to-back defeats. Their recent victory against Sri Lanka in the last match is likely to boost their confidence for the upcoming challenge.
