IND vs NZ Preview:
- Rohit Sharma has been displaying exceptional form recently, with scores of 131, 86, and 48 in his last three innings. In the match against Bangladesh, he played a crucial role in establishing an 88-run opening partnership with the returning Shubman Gill. The right-handed captain has been prolific, hitting 13 sixes and 29 fours in the tournament, boasting an impressive strike rate of 137.30. These statistics are remarkable and would be highly regarded in T20Is. Our prediction is that Rohit will be India’s top run-scorer against New Zealand.
- Jasprit Bumrah is widely recognized as one of the most menacing bowlers in the world, particularly in ODI cricket, where he poses a constant threat throughout the innings. In the 2023 Cricket World Cup, he has maintained an outstanding average of 13.40 wickets per match. We believe that backing Bumrah as India’s leading wicket-taker in this match is a wise choice.
- Devon Conway has an impressive track record at the crease in India, with an average of 83.00 from his four innings in the tournament. Before the Saturday fixtures, he had recorded the highest number of fours in the competition, totaling 30. As an opener, he consistently positions himself for substantial scores for the Black Caps, and we anticipate him being the top run-scorer for New Zealand on Sunday.
- Trent Boult, the pace bowler, continues to demonstrate exceptional skills, displaying not only control but also an array of variations in his bowling. In a recent victory over Afghanistan in Chennai, he dismissed two batters. Our prediction is that Boult will be New Zealand’s top wicket-taker in Match 21 in Dharamsala.
- Jasprit Bumrah has been consistently effective, taking at least two wickets in all four games of this campaign. We strongly recommend considering him to claim over 1.5 wickets in this upcoming clash.

Weather & Pitch Report:
The upcoming game is expected to be notably cooler than some of the previous matches in this competition. The weather forecast indicates cloudy conditions and a maximum temperature of 17 degrees, with a slight possibility of rain.
The pitch at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium is likely to provide a well-balanced challenge for both batsmen and bowlers. We anticipate that a competitive score on this pitch would typically fall in the vicinity of 300 runs.
In the 2023 Cricket World Cup, the team batting first has emerged victorious in the last two matches played at this venue. Therefore, we anticipate that both team captains will opt to bat first in this upcoming game.
IND vs NZ Team NEWS:
IND Team News:
Hardik Pandya, who seemed to have twisted his ankle while bowling against Bangladesh last week, hasn’t made the trip to Dharamsala. However, he is anticipated to recover in time for the next match. Stepping in for him, we anticipate Suryakumar Yadav to join the team.
NZ Team News:
New Zealand made just one alteration before their victory against Afghanistan. Captain Kane Williamson was sidelined due to a thumb injury, and in his place, Will Young took his spot at the opening position. While Tim Southee has recuperated from his hand injury, it’s improbable that he will feature in this particular match.

Before the Saturday fixtures, both of these teams have established a comfortable four-point lead over the pursuing competitors, underscoring their outstanding performance. New Zealand is renowned for consistently surpassing expectations in World Cups, underpinned by the fact that they possess a squad brimming with world-class talent. India, similarly, boasts remarkable depth but tends to infuse more flair into their gameplay, aiming to captivate the crowd. Nevertheless, in this match, entertainment value takes a backseat to the final outcome. We anticipate a closely contested battle, with our bet on India as the stronger team to maintain their unblemished record.

The right-handed batsman delivered a Player of the Match performance against Bangladesh, sealing the victory with a six, concluding his innings at an unbeaten 103 from 97 balls.
In the previous game, the right-arm fast bowler took down two seasoned players, Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim. As he enters this match, he carries a notable strike-rate of 22.20 in the tournament.
The all-rounder with a bowling specialization maintains remarkable consistency across various cricket formats. In his recent three games, he consistently conceded 38 runs and secured two wickets in each of the last two matches.

The in-form batting all-rounder, who had an unusual off-day during Match 16 in Chennai, faced only 7 balls and scored a mere 1 run. Nevertheless, considering his impressive ODI average of 48.45, we anticipate him making a strong comeback with a substantial run tally in this upcoming game.
In the previous match, the opening bowler displayed exceptional skills, delivering figures of 2-18 in 7 overs. Whether bowling around or over the wicket, he maintains the same level of menace that has made him formidable in previous World Cups.
