Manchester, July 09, Tuesday at 03:00 PM IST
After an enthralling five weeks league round, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 advances into the business end as it’s time for the semi-finals. The first semi-final will be played between India and New Zealand at Old Trafford, Manchester on Tuesday.
With seven wins and a draw in nine games, India clinched the top spot from Australia in the league stage points table and will lock horns with fourth-placed New Zealand. Their league stage game was washed away due to rain and team India will leave no stone unturned to be the finalist in World Cup 2019. With both the openers smashing a century against Sri Lanka and Jasprit Bumrah picking up three wickets, the team looks in a good rhythm.
The 2015 runner-ups New Zealand, on the opposite, would be low on confidence after facing three successive losses in the league stage. The Kiwis will have to put up a strong team performance to counter the high flying Men In Blue.
The clash will begin at 03:30 PM IST.
