India and New Zealand will play the semi-final on November 15 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. It will be difficult to beat New Zealand in the semi-finals. Therefore, we will share formulas that can help Team India beat the Kiwis.
India vs New Zealand Semi Final in World Cup 2023: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will feature a semi-final match between India and New Zealand. India and New Zealand will play their semi-final at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday, November 15. The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma reached the semi-finals after nine straight wins.
New Zealand won five matches to reach this point. Rohit Brigade defeated New Zealand by four wickets in their last World Cup match. Group matches are very different from knockout matches.
It will be difficult to beat New Zealand in the semi-finals. Therefore, we will share formulas that can help Team India beat the Kiwis.
Kane Williamson must leave quickly.
Kiwi captain Kane Williamson may be India’s biggest threat. Williamson missed India’s group stage match against New Zealand due to injury. Williamson averages 43.12 in 28 ODI matches against India, scoring 1078 runs. Williamson’s batting troubled India in the 2019 World Cup semi-finals and 2021 World Test Championship final. It will be easier to reach the final if India eliminates Williamson early.
Bolt-Ferguson will have to be attacked
Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Lockie Ferguson are dangerous Kiwi fast bowlers. In particular, left-arm bowler Trent Boult can threaten Indian batsmen. Bolt usually takes one or two early wickets against India. This disintegrates the Indian batting order. Indian batsmen can win the semi-final if they pressure Bolt and Ferguson early.
Openers will have to be out quickly
In the World Cup, New Zealand openers Rachin Ravindra and Devon Conway have done well. 23-year-old Rachin Ravindra has excelled. Ravindra scored 565 runs in 9 World Cup 2023 matches. His bat produced three centuries and two half-centuries. Ravindra scored 75 runs in the group match against India. These two players must be bowled soon by India. Only by dismissing both openers can India pressure the middle order batsmen.
Phenomenal performance by Team India at the #CWC2023! 🇮🇳💙 9 out of 9 wins in the group stage – what an exceptional performance! Kudos to our batters for a record-breaking show, with the top 5 scoring 50s – a FIRST in @cricketworldcup history! Special mention to @ShreyasIyer15 &… pic.twitter.com/59W6FnBZkQ

Kohli-Rohit must rain runs
Captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli excelled in the World Cup. Captain Rohit Sharma has 503 runs at 55.88 in 9 World Cup matches. Virat has the most runs (594 at 99) after 9 matches. India’s chances of winning will improve if these two experienced batsmen score big against New Zealand.
Shami-Bumrah and Siraj must persevere.
The fast bowlers Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Jasprit Bumrah will be most responsible for winning. These three will be responsible for destroying New Zealand’s top order. In the World Cup, Bumrah, Siraj, and Shami have taken 45 wickets. Shami took five wickets for 54 runs in the last match against New Zealand. Additionally, middle over spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja will be crucial.
