India vs New Zealand Match Preview

The only two teams that have not lost a single match so far are India and New Zealand. Today, one of them will fall, barring a tie, which would be the first time for the teams in the history of the tournament.

When they play New Zealand, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team will be looking for their fifth victory after triumphing over the likes of Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh. New Zealand has also won all their four tournament games thus far, whereas India has also won their last four games. But that is going to change today.

India will have to face New Zealand at the ICC World Cup Dharamsala on Sunday (22 October) as they will be looking to get their first win over New Zealand in 20 years. India will be concerned about their playing 11 after Hardik Pandya was ruled out of the match. It will be a big challenge for India management to replace Hardik Pandya. If they replace him with a batter, then their bowling will definitely miss the services of a 6th bowler and replacing him with an extra bowler can only be done at the expense of a batter, which also seems like a difficult decision. In all likelihood, Suryakumar Yadav or Ishan Kishan will get a game with the possibility of Mohammad Shami replacing Shardul Thakur.

IND vs NZ Pitch Report

Fast bowlers have a habit of doing well on the pitch in HPCA Stadium, but it can also be a batsman’s paradise late in the innings. Interestingly, Bangladesh’s spinners had a great run in their last match against Afghanistan, so the pitch can be interpreted in different ways. If Hardik Pandya is ruled out, India will probably go with Mohammed Shami, as the pitch looks good.
