Dream11 Team IND vs NZ ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Today’s 1st World Cup Semifinal India vs New Zealand at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester: India will take on New Zealand for the first time in the World Cup since 2003. After rain played the spoilsport last month in India’s third league game of ICC World Cup 2019, the two teams now get a chance to lock horns once again in the 1st semifinal at the iconic Emirates Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester. It has been a contrasting scenario for both the teams as India are in the middle of a rampaging run in the tournament as they finished the league stages on the top of the pile. A loss against England was a minor blip in an otherwise supreme run. However, New Zealand haven’t been in good form of late, with three consecutive losses. In their last World Cup league encounter, the Kiwis were thrashed by hosts England by a massive margin of 119 runs. But this blip in form had been preceded by a string of victories. At one point, New Zealand was the only undefeated team, alongside India. Also Read - Royal Challengers Bangalore Match Dates IPL 2021: Check Out The Full Schedule For RCB

It began its campaign with a 10-wicket victory over Sri Lanka. A nervy win over Bangladesh followed, before the team put up a commanding performance against Afghanistan.
