India vs New Zealand Predictions


India are heavily favoured to win this after nine successive group victories. However, knockout cricket is where New Zealand thrived, it is also where New Zealand knocked India out in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

That said, on home soil with a packed house behind them, I feel India will have too much quality. My best bet is for Virat Kohli to put aside his poor knockout form at the Cricket World Cup and score big.

  • India have won their last 9 matches.
  • India have won their last 4 matches against New Zealand.
  • India’s Virat Kohli has scored 95, 88, 101* & 51 runs in 4 of his last 5 innings.
  • New Zealand have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • New Zealand’s Rachin Ravindra has scored 75, 116, 108 & 42 runs in 4 of his last 5 innings.

Head to Head


India have won their last four ODIs against New Zealand. That includes a four-wicket win earlier in this Cricket World Cup.

India Form


India are overwhelming favourites to win the Cricket World Cup on home soil. They were slight favourites ahead of the tournament but their form in the competition has made it difficult to look past them.

They have won each of their nine group matches and topped the table with ease. In their last match they amassed 410 runs against the Netherlands with Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli scoring 50+ runs.

It was however Shreyas Iyer (128*) and KL Rahul (102) who dominated the innings. The bowlers didn’t have it all their own way but managed to bowl Netherlands out for 250 runs.

India Injuries & Team News


The pitch could force changes to the Indian side but for all intents and purposes, it would seem they will be largely unchanged.

New Zealand Form


It has been a very strange World Cup for New Zealand to date, but as history would suggest, they always find a way. They started the tournament with a bang, winning their opening four fixtures.

That was however followed by four straight defeats. They needed to win their last game against Sri Lanka to be sure of qualification. The bowlers did the job, dismissing Sri Lanka for 177 runs.

The Black Caps made slight work of the chase, reaching the total inside 24 overs. Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell all scored quickfire 40+ scores.

New Zealand Injuries & Team News


The Black Caps have suffered one injury after another at the World Cup. But I don’t see them making any changes ahead of the semis.

Verdict

I am backing Virat Kohli to score 50+ runs and top score for the hosts.

For New Zealand, Rachin Ravindra holds some value.
