World Cup stakes are high as India and New Zealand are the only 2 teams left with all win record at the ongoing world cup. Let’s see who will be the first to blink today.
When India’s No.4 problem was solved there is a new hurdle in the store. After a heroic inning against Australia, Shikhar Dhawan is sidelined with a thumb fracture and India will have to start with a new opening pair. Which does not only mean Rahul will go on top of the order but the selectors must choose between Shankar,DK, Jadeja to fill the spot.
On the other hand the Kiwis look in impeccable form and have registered easy wins in all 3 games against AFG,SL &BAN. Jimmy Neesham, Lockie Ferguson, Kane Willamson & the rest of the team are playing their career best cricket. NZ has always been one team which has created upset for India in ICC tournamnets. Although India will draw confidence from their 4-1 series win in New Zealand earlier this year and if they win today’s match there’ll be no doubt that India will be the favourites to lift the World Cup.
