ABOUT THE MATCH
The ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final lineup is set and the four best teams of the tournament have made it through. Fans of Pakistan might disagree with that since they ended up on the same points as New Zealand in the end and had actually beaten it in their head to head encounter but that is a discussion for another time.
The first semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played between India and New Zealand. India finished at the top of the table and lost just one game in its entire campaign. New Zealand finished fourth and was slightly lucky to have scraped through to the semi-final on the basis of net run-rate.
Interestingly, the only game that was washed out for both India and New Zealand was against each other. They played against each other in a warm-up game before the start of the actual World Cup 2019, a match that was won by New Zealand.
India comes into this match full of confidence with most of its players in form while New Zealand comes after three straight defeats in its last three matches.
India vs New Zealand ICC World Cup 2019 semi-final is going to be played at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.
