Before the semi-final, let’s know about 3 players from New Zealand who can be a burden on the Indian team.
The Indian team has won 9 out of 9 matches in the World Cup this year. But the New Zealand team should not take it lightly. In the 2019 World Cup, this team defeated India by 18 runs and entered the final. First of all let’s talk about Rachin Ravindra. Racine has been the most impressive player in this World Cup. So far, Rachin has scored 565 runs at an average of 70 in 9 matches. He has 3 centuries and 2 half centuries to his name. He also scored 75 against India in this World Cup. It can be a threat to India.
Team India will have to be most wary of New Zealand’s explosive batsman Daryl Mitchell. Daryl Mitchell badly knocked the bowlers of Team India in the match against India. He scored 130 runs with the help of 9 fours and 5 sixes. This is Mitchell’s only century. Apart from this he has also spent 2 fifty. Mitchell has so far scored 418 runs in 8 innings at an average of 59. In such a situation, India has to be wary of them.
Trent Boult has always dominated Team India. Indian players are often seen struggling while bowling in the opening overs. Virat Kohli will have to be careful with him. He dismissed Kohli for 1 run in the 2019 World Cup. Let us tell you that Bolt has taken 13 wickets in 9 matches so far in this tournament. Its economy has also remained below 6 during this period.
