ICC World Cup 2019:Semi Final 1:Playing XI and match preview

Finally we are here in the Semi Finals after over a month of League stage matches as Black Caps are ready to take on Men in Blue in the first one of the two semi finals.

India had a consistent run throughout the series as they only lost one match against England.In the other side New Zealand started really well in league matches and lost all their last few matches.

Clearly and Surely India is having the upper mindset going into the match but given the day and conditions New Zealand is strong enough to beat India at any day.

Indian batting order looked bit weak for us given that they had only 6 specialist batsmen upfront.But addition of Jadeja gave them that much needed cushion going into the Semis.We are hoping that he will stick with the side today if they do not surprise us.

In New Zealand perspective,Ferguson is expected to come back into the team instead of Tim Southee.

Expected team for today's game is as follows;


1.Rohit Sharma
2.KL Rahul
3.Virat Kohli (c)
4.Rishabh Pant
5.MS Dhoni (wk)
6.Hardik Pandya
7.Dinesh Karthik
8.Ravindra Jadeja
9.Mohammed Shami
10.Yuzvendra Chahal 
11.Jasprit Bumrah


1.Martin Guptill
2.Colin Munro
3.Kane Williamson(c)
4.Ross Taylor 
5.Tom Latham(wk)
6.James Neesham
7.Colin de Grandhomme
