World Cup 2019: India Vs New Zealand


Match details

India vs New Zealand, 18th Match, World Cup
June 13th 2019, 3:00 PM IST

Venue : Trent Bridge, Nottingham

details

Established in 1841, Trent Bridge has undergone a lot of renovation in recent times that has made the outfield even smaller and left it in an unusual shape. The boundary is straight instead of being curved on one side and it can be terrifyingly short.  The pitch at Trent Bridge has been described as flat and does not assist with a lot of swing. In that light, it is ideal for heavy hitting and has become a paradise for batsmen.  

Preview

Both the teams are unbeaten in the tournament so far but one has to take the defeat as New Zealand will take on India on 13th June 2019 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The match will be live from 3:00 pm IST.

Securing convincing wins against South Africa and defending champions Australia would have boosted the confidence of team India. The team have been dealt a big blow as Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the World Cup for three weeks due to a fractured thumb. Men In Blue will be looking to continue their form against the Kiwis also.

New Zealand have had two comfortable victories so far, against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan respectively. However, they had to battle hard to secure a win against Bangladesh. The bowlers have largely been at the forefront of their success so far, bowling out oppositions cheaply and setting things up nicely for the batsmen.
