Team India Analysis
Well, there is no doubt about India’s chances of winning the world cup. They are absolutely brilliant so far in the tournament. They have won their 8 matches out of 9 and ended the league stage at the top of the table. England is the only team who have beaten India. In their last match against Sri Lanka, they were put to bowl after losing the toss. Indian bowlers bowled really well in that match and restricted Sri Lanka to 264 runs and gave 265 runs to chase. Champion bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled really well and grabbed 3 wickets and gave away just 37 runs in 10 overs. Apart from him all other bowlers one wicket each and showed good bowling skills.
India’s batting in this tournament is very powerful and they can chase any score on any sort of wicket. Their openers are doing a wonderful job by giving a good start and playing very sensibly. After the injury of Shikhar dhawan, KL Rahul was asked to open the attack and he didn’t disappoint. In their last match against Sri lanka, he played a brilliant knock of 111 runs in 118 balls. Rohit Sharma also scored a century in just 94 balls and is in the best form of his life. He is the leading run scorer in the tournament with 647 runs. King Virat Kohli filing to convert his half-centuries into a big one and everyone will be hoping a century from him in the knockout matches.
Team New Zealand Analysis
New Zealand started their tournament very well with 5 back to back wins and as a result of this, they entered into the semis despite having same points i.e 11 as of Pakistan. They had a better net run rate than Pakistan and were lucky to get into the semis. They lost their last 3 matches against Australia, Pakistan and England and they looked a lot more dependent on their skipper Kane Williamson. In their last match against England, their bowlers performed really bad as they conceded too many runs and England gave them a target of 305 runs to chase. Trent Boult, Matt Henry and James Neesham bowled well with 2 wickets each. Other bowlers were very expensive and gave too many runs.
Their batsman is not looking good in the tournament. It seems they are heavily dependent on their captain Kane Williamson. Every time when he came into bat he gave his team a fair hope to win the match. But whenever he failed, their batting lineup looked uncomfortable. In their Last match against England, they were all out by England in just 186 runs and lost by a huge margin of 119 runs. Tom Latham was the only batsman with a half century. England completed ripped apart their batting lineup. They need to perform very well with the bat if they want to win against India.
