India takes on New Zealand in a clash of Top 4-ranked ODI teams in Match 18 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. 

India was the last team to see action in the current tournament as the 2017 Champions Trophy finalists didn’t play until June 5th when they handed South Africa their third straight defeat of the tournament. India also defeated Australia in Match 14 on June 9th. So the highly confident Indian Team are ready to face black Caps.

New Zealand meanwhile was the first team to go 3-0 in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The Kiwis posted a dominant win over Sri Lanka in their tournament opener. Then they survived a thriller against Bangladesh in their second match of this World Cup. New Zealand also won their third match against Afghanistan easily but this time they have to face India who already beaten SA and Australia.

This time the competition is tough for New Zealand as India is the favourities to win this world cup and all the players are back in form. But the Bad news fo India is that shikhar dhawan is ruled out of the world cup for 3 weeks till now beacause of fracture in his thumb as he was hit by a bouncer during the last match. So probably KL Rahul might out the innings for India instead of SHikhar Dhawan.

New Zealand has made the semi-finals in four out of the last five editions of the Cricket World Cup. The only time they didn’t make it was in 2003 when they forfeited their match against Kenya due to security concerns. The current world #4 ODI team is hoping to finally go all the way this year.

Pitch report & Weather forecast

Weather Report : Weather will be light drizzle with daytime temperature reaching 15 °c. Night time temperature are expected to be 9 °c.We expect around 26.1 mm of precipitation to fall. We expect around 26.1 mm of precipitation to fall and cloud covering 92%of the sky, the humidity will be around 89%.

Pitch Report :   The boundaries at Trent Bridge are short, making it a very good venue for batting. New Zealand will have to get their other batsmen to help Ross Taylor with the scoring if they want to beat a superb batting team like India. This is going to be high-scoring game because of the venue and with the world’s #1 ODI bowler on India’s side, I don’t think that the Kiwis can outscore them in this match.
