India vs New Zealand World Cup 2023 TOSS Semi Final: India win and skipper Rohit Sharma chooses to bat. Both teams announce unchanged XIs for the high-octane clash at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
India vs New Zealand LIVE Score, World Cup 2023 Semi Final: The day of reckoning is here. India have never beaten New Zealand in the final of an ICC event but they must do so on Wednesday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai if they are to reach the final at home. If New Zealand have history on their side, India have form. The Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue won all nine matches in the group including a win over New Zealand to reach the semi-finals. They will now hope to continue the winning momentum as they look to win the World Cup for the first time since 2011 when the competition was last held in the country.
Another block for India is their poor overall record as they have lost eight knockout matches in ICC events since 2013 and have not won a world title in 10 years. India captain Rohit Sharma, however, is not worried about the past.
“That’s the beauty of this team. We weren’t even born when we won the World Cup in 1983. Half of them weren’t playing when we won in 2011. I don’t see them talking about how we won the World Cup before,” he said on the the night before the game.
“The focus is on how we can improve and how we can improve. That’s the beauty of the current top players. From game number one, the focus is on winning today.”
While it is about to become World Champion again for India, for New Zealand it is about continuing what has made them this consistent force in world cricket. They reached the finals of the 2015 and 2019 ODI World Cups and will be hoping to do the same in 2023.
