India vs New Zealand ODI records: The SportsRush present before you the Head to Head record for IND vs NZ 2019 World Cup semi-final match.
The first semi-final of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between India and New Zealand at Old Trafford tomorrow. While India ended the league stage as the table-toppers, New Zealand qualified majorly because of a better run rate than Pakistan.
It is the same reason why India are being considered as the favourites going into this match. Having said that, the No. 1 team in the league stage wouldn’t be taking anything for granted in Manchester tomorrow.
The league stage match between both the teams was abandoned due to rain which means that India will have an advantage if the semi-final is also washed out due to inclement weather conditions.
In the last ODI that the two nations played, India defeated New Zealand by 35 runs. Despite being reduced to 18/4 in the 10th over, India posted 252 in 49.5 overs on the back of Ambati Rayudu scoring 90 (113) with the help of eight fours and four sixes.
New Zealand’s new-ball pair of Matt Henry (10-1-35-4) and Trent Boult (9.5-2-39-3) had excelled for their team. Led by Yuzvendra Chahal (10-0-41-3), Indian bowlers restricted New Zealand to 217 in 44.1 overs. Other than Chahal, Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya also picked a couple of wickets.
