The viewers of ICC World Cup 2019 series are going to witness another interesting combat between India and New Zealand on13th June. It is not merely a match but in fact a Clash of Clans that is going to be witnessed in Trent Bridge, Nottingham. It is the 18th match of the series and both the teams seem in high spirit to carry the day.
Comparative View of India and New Zealand
If we see the previous performance of New Zealand, it has played 3 matches in ICC World Cup 2019 series and has won all three. With 6 points, it is leading the points table. However, New Zealand faced weaker teams in the previous three matches of ICC World Cup series. It was not a great job to defeat Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka because all these are lower ranked teams.
But still, the Kiwis are at top position due to their exceptional performance in previous matches. The perfect partnership of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro can be proved a stunning opening for New Zealand.
This opening partnership scores at a faster run rate and really gives a very tough time for the opponents. In the middle order, the performance of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor add more sensation for the players.
In the end, Jimmy Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, and Tome Latham prove their batting capabilities to take the team towards success.
Not only the batsmen but also the bowlers of New Zealand show stunning performance. Trent Boult always gives a tough time to Indian bowlers, particularly to Rohit Sharma. In the same way, Matt Henry and Lockie Ferguson show exceptional performance.
Here is the team Squad of New Zealand
|Batsmen||Bowlers||Wicket Keepers||All Rounders|
|Kane Williamson (Captain)||Trent Boult||Tom Blundell||Colin de Grandhomme|
|Martin Guptill||Matt Henry||Henry Nicholls||Colin Munro|
|Ross Taylor||Lockie Ferguson||Tom Latham||James Neesham|
|Tim Southee||Mitchell Santner|
India has shown a mind-blowing performance in the previous two matches of ICC World Cup 2019 series. In 8th Match of the series on June 5, 2019, India beats South Africa by 6 wickets. It completed the target score in 47.3 balls. Similarly, in the 14th match on June 9, 2019, India defeats Australia by 36 runs. So, it is its strong batting and bowling line that it won two matches from big teams. Unluckily, Shikhar Dhawan will not be available for this match. He is out of the game for three weeks due to his finger injury. KL Rahul will play as an opener instead of Shikhar Dhawan. In the middle order, Dinesh Karthik is immensely popular due to his stunning batting.
Not only the batsmen, but bowlers are also ready to show their performance. Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal are considered the most popular bowlers due to their stunning performance.
Here is the Team Squad of India.
|Batsmen||Bowlers||Wicket Keepers||All Rounders|
|Rohit Sharma||Kuldeep Yadav||Lokesh Rahul||Vijay Shankar|
|Virat Kohli (Captain)||Mohammad Shami||Dinesh Karthik||Kedar Jadhav|
|Shikhar Dhawan||Jasprit Bumrah||MS Dhoni||Hardik Pandya|

Pitch and Weather Conditions
While seeing the performance of both the teams, we can say that both of them are equally strong. However, the pitch of Trent Bridge, Nottingham is suitable for the batsmen due to the humidity in the air. This week, the weather in the UK remained very bad and still, there is a forecast for rain on 13th June in Nottingham. So, the pitch is not suitable for the bowlers. The batsmen would be able to score up to 330 due to a suitable pitch.
Where the Teams Stand
It is difficult to say which team will win the match on 13th June. However, seeing the performance, batting and bowling strategies of both the teams, we can say that New Zealand will win this match. India has also shown exceptional performance in previous matches, but still, some batsmen of the team are under the influence of Kiwis’ stunning bowling. In short, the overall performance, pitch, battling and bowling orders predict that India has 66% chances to win the game and New Zealand has 34% chances to win this match.
