India scripted a record as Top 5 batters ended up scoring 50+ against Netherlands and New Zealand should take it as a warning sign ahead of the semifinals.
37 boundaries, 16 sixes, 3 half-centuries, two centuries and 410 runs — India Cricket Team has sent warnings to New Zealand ahead of the big IND vs NZ Cricket World Cup semifinal on Nov 15. India’s top five batted in the IND vs NED game, with Rohit Singh, Shubman Ghll and Virat Kohli each hitting half-centuries. Shreyas iyer and KL rahul then smashed some impressive centuries. It was a positive sign for Team India, as Kiwis have always been a problem for them.
India Cricket Team might have a slight advantage in bilateral cricket over New Zealand, but that is not true in ICC tournaments. India lost their last semifinal against New Zealand in ODI World Cup, and they also lost the WTC Final 2020 to New Zealand.
New Zealand has a 5-4 edge over India in the ICC Cricket World Cup.
