The match scheduled in Old Trafford, Manchester at 3.00 PM IST.

In the history of the world cup matches, both the teams met each other in 8 matches where New Zealand won in 4, India won in 3 and 1 of the matches was declared to be no result because of rain. In this semi-finals match it is the time for both the teams to prove themselves and enter into the next level of the World Cup 2019.

Key players to look for
The “hitman” scored his first century in the tournament against South Africa and how he is the only player who has scored 5 times centuries in the single world cup. In them, it was also a hat trick centuries in the last three matches. Now, he has become a threat to the opponent bowling team.
He is at the top third place in the wicket-taking list with 17 wickets in the World Cup 2019. In the last match against Sri Lanka, with the last wicket, Bumrah also became second Fastest Indian player to complete 100 wickets. It is expected he has to give his best for the success of the match for today.
Team New Zealand’s most consistent batsman, Kane Williamson now have a high responsibility for anchoring the innings when the team is facing against Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvebndra Chahal. There is nothing wrong in saying that Williamson’s innings will decide the outcome of the match. He is the most significant player to be watched out.
Trent Boult is the player who blew away the entire batting line up in the first warm-up match. He has potential and expected to do the same thing in the current match as well. He once again has to show his performance against Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli and the left arm fast blowers need to bowl as if the heat out to present Kiwis a chance.
It is expected that the toss-winning team would choose to bat and present a high score on the scoreboard to make a tough chasing. To More upcoming cricket league TNPL 2019, please visit on freecricketbettingtips.co.in
