India-New Zealand: India captain Virat Kohli was at it again! It seemed he did not like the pace of the match and hence started entertaining himself, rather than depending on someone else. Kohli seemed to be making some actions or we could say he was trying to egg the crowd at Old Trafford. This is not the first time that Kohli has been spotted making others chuckle. He was trying to imitate Sarfaraz during the Pakistan match and was spotted copying Bumrah’s action ahead of the semi-finals.

At the time of filing the copy, the Kiwi’s were reeling at 162/4 in 41 overs. Williamson top-scored with 67 off 95 balls.
Meanwhile, New Zealand have made one change in their line-up — Lockie Ferguson comes in place of Tim Southee.
India have also made one change to their playing XI which featured against Sri Lanka. Yuzvendra Chahal has been included in place of Kuldeep Yadav.
“We’re going to bat. It looks like a good surface. We have played a number of games here. A toss-up with the overheads, but it’ll be around all day, so we need to get the job first up. We are used to the routine, but we have a great opportunity to put up a good performance against a side like India. Ferguson comes in for Southee,” said Williamson after winning the toss.
“We’ve played really good cricket in Manchester, two good games, and it’s about focussing on the basics. We need to remember why we are in the semis. Chahal comes back in for Kuldeep Yadav,” said India skipper Virat Kohli.
