Cricket Match Preview:

After a complete performance against Australia, India will now move to Trent Bridge, where they will be taking on the current number one team on the points table, New Zealand. Both teams are unbeaten so far and the streak is going to end for one of them after this cricket game.

It could be argued that New Zealand have got the easier games at the start of this tournament. Three of their opponents so far were Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The format is such that each team is required to play everyone so no team can claim to have a disadvantage. But if we compare the opponents of a team like South Africa so far, they have had to play against England, Bangladesh and India, two of which have been widely touted as trophy contender.

India, on the other hand, have been clinical. After getting the advantage of playing after one week of tournament initiation, India have been in excellent form. While against South Africa, their bowlers hit the mark and set up an easy victory for their batsmen. In the second cricket game against Australia, the game was setup by the batsmen for their bowlers. It must be pleasing for skipper Virat Kohli as there is no obvious weakness in display from them.

One thing every New Zealand side does consistently well is planning. They are an astute planner of their game and are widely known to find out the weaknesses of their opponents. That is the main reason why they have almost always made it to the semifinals without much fanfare. They would be wary of India though. In the bilateral ODI cricket series played at home, they were beaten convincingly by India and, more importantly, they were outthought by India.

India have been hurt in the past World Cup as well by New Zealand teams. They will have to continue to stay at the top of their game as their scheduling requires them to stay focused. This game is also coming after a relatively less break time and with Pakistan in store in two days after this game, India will have to be careful to avoid burnout.

Cricket Match Information:

India will take on New Zealand in their third cricket game of the competition. New Zealand, on the other hand, will be playing their fourth game. So far, both these cricket teams have been unbeaten. Each cricket team is supposed to play nine group games and the top four cricket teams will go through to the semi-final.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India are being led by Virat Kohli in this tournament. They are coming into this game after two back-to-back wins. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last game.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • KL Rahul
  • MS Dhoni
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Hardik Pandya

New Zealand

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

New Zealand are being led by Kane Williamson in the World Cup. They are coming into this game after three back-to-back wins. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:

  • Martin Guptill
  • Colin Munro
  • Kane Williamson
  • Ross Taylor
  • Tom Latham
  • Jimmy Neesham
  • Colin de Grandhomme
  • Trent Boult
  • Mitchell Santner
  • Matt Henry
  • Lockie Ferguson

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Trent Boult has had wood over Indian top order players, particularly against Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. If he can once again trouble them, it will be a huge advantage for New Zealand. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket ODI cricket played here was between Australia and West Indies recently. Australia won that cricket game by just 15 runs after scoring 288 runs on batting first. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 in this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be cool and rain is expected to play a spoilsport.

Our Prediction:

India will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They beat New Zealand recently in the ODI cricket series played in New Zealand. Also, after beating two tough opponents in South Africa and Australia their confidence would be sky high. Hence, our prediction is of an Indian victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Virat Kohli (IND) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Yuzvendra Chahal (IND) -2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Hardik Pandya (IND)
