The 2023 ODI World Cup has reached its knockout stage, where hosts, India, will lock horns with 2015 and 2019 finalists New Zealand in a highly anticipated semifinal. The match is slated to take place on November 15, Wednesday, at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Speaking of their individual campaigns, the Men in Blue are running on an undefeated streak, whereas the Kiwis became the fourth team to enter into the semifinals.
Rohit Sharma and Co. locked horns with the Kane Williamson-led squad during the league stage of the tournament. During that match, it was the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma who had won the toss over New Zealand’s stand-in captain Tom Latham. For the forthcoming match, we think the visiting skipper Kane Willaimson will win the toss over Sharma.
India and New Zealand share an ODI history of 117 matches, where the Asian giants have won 59 games, while the previous finalists managed to win only 50 games. Not only this, but if we have a look at the ongoing edition of the marquee ICC event, the 1983 and 2011 champions didn’t lose any of their fixtures.
In addition, during the league-stage fixture between India and New Zealand, the Rohit Sharma-led squad registered a four-wicket win over the Blackcaps. The record suggests that the home team are clear favourites to win the forthcoming game.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has hosted a total of 27 ODI matches. Speaking about the ongoing season of the World Cup, the cricketing venue will host its fifth and final match of the tournament. The average first inning score of the venue is 245, and we think it will hover around 280-290 in the next game. Speaking of the powerplay, it is expected to lie somewhere between 45-50.
