New Zealand Cricket Team Review
New Zealand have qualified for the semi final of Cricket World Cup 2019 on the basis of run rate. They have equal points with Pakistan but their net run rate was in positive which makes them qualify.
New Zealand have played very bad cricket in the second half of the tournament as they were beaten by Pakistan and England. They are quite fortunate to be their in the semis.
Most of the batsmen from their batting lineup are out of form. Ross Taylor is one of their premier batsman but he failed to score heavily in this World Cup so far. It is hoped that he will score some very good runs in the all important game.
Kane Williamson is the only batsman who si scoring consistently and New Zealand is relying quite heavily on him. New Zealand will be hoping that Kane score a beautiful century in this game for New Zealand.
The New Zealand strength is their bowling lineup. Boult and Southee are their champion bowlers. But are they good enough to bowl great Indian batting lineup? This is a very important question that will be asked on 9th of July.
India Cricket Team Review
Most of the Cricketing legends think that India had lost the match deliberately so that Pakistan could not make it to the Semis. The body language of the Indian players were not the same as appeared in the other matches.
This makes the match suspicious and people thought that India have played negative cricket which is against the sportsmen spirit of the game. Most of the senior players including Nasir Hossain, Sourav Ganguly, Micheal Holding, Ramiz Raja have also criticized Indian Cricket Team for not playing the good cricket and let England qualify for the Semi Finals.
Millions of people have criticized MS Dhoni for not played attacking cricket in the ending overs of the game. This type of act is against the nature of MS Dhoni who is known by one of the best finishers of the game.
Coming back to the game that will be played on 9th July, India will now play their heart out to win this match and qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup Finals. Virat Kohli have already expressed his feelings in the press conference on Monday. He was quite sure that his team is ready to repeat the history of ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, where India have won the title. This was the last World Cup of the Cricketing Legend Sachin Tendulkar.
We think that India will go without any change in the match. They have made some very important changes in their batting and bowling lineup in this World Cup so far but all of the changes they made have performed very well in the form of Shami and Rahul in the top batting order.
Indian Captain Virat Kohli will be pleased with the way their bowlers and batsmen have performed so far. Rohit Sharma has set a recorf for the most number of centuries by any batsmen in Cricket World Cup. He has scored 5 centuries in this World Cup so far which is a record by itself.
Virat Kohli have not scored a century in this World Cup so far but we all know how devastating a batsman he is. He is a big match player and he will surely make his impact over the game in the all important match of Tuesday.
