India vs New Zealand ICC ODI World Cup 2023: The semi-final match of ODI World Cup 2023 will be played between India and New Zealand. Last season also the semi-final match of the World Cup was played between the two teams. Then New Zealand had won by 18 runs. Team India had won 9 consecutive matches in the group stage. The Kiwi team has made it to the semi-finals by winning 5 matches. Both the teams have an army of star players, who can change the course of the match in just a few balls. There have been a lot of changes in Team India since the last semi-final in the World Cup.
Team India has changed so much
In the ODI World Cup 2019, the command of Team India was in the hands of Virat Kohli and the responsibility of vice-captain was being handled by Rohit Sharma. But this time the captain is Rohit Sharma. Six players who played the semi-finals against New Zealand in the ODI World Cup 2019 will not play in the semi-finals for the Indian team this time. These include Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni took retirement from international cricket in the year 2020. On the other hand, star wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant is not fit due to injury and was not available for selection in the World Cup. Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Dinesh Karthik could not make it to Team India this time due to poor performance. Hardik Pandya was selected in the team for the ODI World Cup 2023, but due to injury, he was ruled out of the entire tournament. Prasidh Krishna has got a chance in his place. There are five players who played against New Zealand last time, who will be seen playing in the semi-finals this time too. These include Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah.

Such is the record of both teams
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, Team India is performing amazingly in the current World Cup. The team has won 9 consecutive matches and made it to the semi-finals. On the other hand, the New Zealand team started the ODI World Cup 2023 with a bang, but after this the team’s train derailed.

So far 10 matches have been played between India and New Zealand in the ODI World Cup, out of which India has won 4 and New Zealand has won five. One match has no result.
