Who’s going to win: Kohli’s India or Williamson’s New Zealand?
Both India and New Zealand desperately need the win. This has become a Do-or-Die situation for the team as the match has become an unofficial Qualifier. Pakistan has already qualified for the Semis from the Group, and the next could be either India or New Zealand.
Whoever wins the match will have hopes to proceed while the other would be virtually knocked out. Both India and New Zealand seem very strong on paper but got betrayed in reality.
India will have hopes from their batting as well as bowling department to step up after a horrendous start to the tournament. Whereas, New Zealand will seek for their top order to deliver a solid start.
For picks, we’d pick India over New Zealand. However, India hasn’t been able to defeat New Zealand in an ICC tournament since 2003. Let’s see if they can break the losing streak!
