New Zealand have beaten India in the warm-up game with Trent Boult leading the way with 4 wickets as the Kiwi bowlers bundled out India for a mere 179, before chasing the target with 77 balls to spare. With overcast skies in Nottingham expected to aid swing bowling, India need to plan their batting plans accordingly.
India must be aware of their head-to-head record against the Kiwis in World Cup matches, which is 4-3 in favour of New Zealand. Not just this, but NZ’s overall record in the biggest ICC tournament is also impressive as they are the team to have won the most WC matches after 5-time winners Australia.
However, India must be feeling confident after beating defending champions and five-time world champion Australia in their last game to show they are termed tournament favourites for a reason.
: 2 wins from 2
