After losing their first matches, India and New Zealand will face to face in a crucial T20 World Cup match. The winner of this encounter has a better chance to enter the semi-final stage considering Pakistan in Group 2 is almost certain to find a place in the next level after winning the first two clashes.
In the first match, India suffered a humiliating defeat against Pakistan. The Babar Azam's side convincingly beat the Men in Blue. Whereas New Zealand lost their first match to Pakistan by five wickets.
Both India and New Zealand have realised what went wrong for them in the previous matches and will be looking forward to correct the mistakes. The Men in Blue will be trying their best not to lose early wickets and put a score which could give confidence for the bowlers to defend.
Whereas Kiwis will be expecting better performance from the middle order. New Zealand will be happy to start the game with the fact that they have won 8 out of 16 matches with two matches ending in tie.
In the World Cup, New Zealand has won both matches. Let us not forget, how the Kiwis defeated the Men in Blue in the World Cup semi-final in 2019.
