Records of the last five finals in the ICC White-ball World Cup.

India has not reached any of the last five finals in the ICC White-ball World Cup, while New Zealand have never won one despite reaching three finals in seven years. They will have something to give when they meet in the semi-final stage of the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

India vs New Zealand is an exciting prospect as the first semi-final of the tournament will be a repeat of the 2019 semi-final at Old Trafford, Manchester.

On that occasion, New Zealand denied India a thrilling contest, with the comebacks of Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni not enough to prevent the Kiwis from making the final.

India’s progress in this semi-final has been even more steady than England’s four years ago, with Rohit Sharma’s side winning all nine games and rarely looking like they were going to be challenged in the knockout stage.

There’s no better place for this semifinal than the one where India won its last Cricket World Cup (2011), making history for the Indian squad hoping to win a major tournament for the first time in twelve years.

This generation of New Zealand cricketers is almost the norm in the white-ball game, with many of the players who lost the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup final in 2021 and Cricket World Cup finals in 2015 and 2019 still featuring in the set-up.

India VS New Zealand Semi-Final 1 Match Key Players:

India Key Players:

Captain Rohit Sharma: Virat Kohli has scored more runs, but Rohit Sharma’s excellent form at the top of the order has set the tone for India time and again throughout the tournament.

His 503 runs have come at a strike rate of 121.49, helping India get the kind of starts that ease the run-rate pressure on the middle order. Getting Rohit out early will be crucial for New Zealand’s hopes of defeating the tournament hosts.

Fast Bowler Jasprit Bumrah: India’s bowling superstar has consistently excelled throughout the tournament to date.

Bumrah’s powerplay numbers are exceptional, and if he can squeeze out the New Zealand openers it will go a long way in containing the Black Caps with the bat. Bumrah is an all-round package – brilliant up front, threatening in the middle and skilled in the death overs.

And his numbers in the tournament are excellent – 17 wickets in nine matches at an average of 15.64 and an impressive economy of 3.65. No bowler who has played more than one match can have better than that economy rate in the tournament.

New Zealand Key Players:

All-rounder Rachin Ravindra: The breakout star of this World Cup is undoubtedly New Zealand’s Rachin Ravindra. The spin-bowling all-rounder was a known talent, but few would have guessed how brilliant his batting has been for the Kiwis. A useful team member at the start of the campaign, Ravindra is now included in the first XI and will look to get India back into attack. Only Quinton de Kock and Virat Kohli have scored more runs than New Zealand’s 565 runs in nine innings. If Ravindra wins against the country where his parents come from, New Zealand will have a big chance.

Medium Fast Bowler Tim Southee: The loss of Matt Henry was a significant blow to the New Zealand attack, and there will be pressure on Tim Southee to perform well on the big stage.

Southee has no shortage of experience and will know that he will have to provide quality support to Trent Boult with the new ball and keep Lockie Ferguson as safe as possible for the middle overs.

If Southee is expensive then India will already have a huge advantage before they target the combination of all-rounders that will provide the fifth set of 10 overs for the Black Caps.
