India will take on New Zealand today, as the teams play against each other at Trent Bridge Nottingham at 3:00 PM IST. These are the only two teams that have remained undefeated, so far, in the World Cup 2019. It should be a nail-biting finish, as both India and New Zealand refuse to buckle down. Stats say that across 101 encounters, India lead 51 to 45 against New Zealand.


KL Rahul is all ready to come to the top, with Shikhar Dhawan injured. Again the no.4 spot is out for takes. A day ahead of the game, both Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik were at the nets, practicing. So, one of them is reckoned to take the position on the numbers’ ladder.

Probable Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Vijay Shankar/Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

New Zealand

With three wins in a row, their lineup is bound to remain the same. Tim Southee could be back. But still there is little to alter. In the ODIs, Southee already got Rohit Sharma five times and this could a point to ponder as far as match-ups are concerned.

Probable Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Jamesh Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult

Pitch Report:

Both pacers and batsmen have been able to benefit from the Trent Bridge pitch. Most of Thursday is predicted to be wet and fans can expect a lot of seams and swings. You might even see a curtailed game due to rain. Historically, sporting wickets for the World Cup 2019 at the very pitch include West Indies vs Pakistan where the Windies’ pacers did a fantastic job with their deliveries. Again on June 6th, Australia registered a win in the 3rd World Cup 2019 match.
