NZ vs IND : New Zealand, on the other hand, would aim for lifting their hopes with a win after losing the ODI series against India. The hosts have only lost two ODIs since losing to South Africa in 2014-15, but their losses in the first three games must have raised doubts in the minds of the hosts ahead of the World Cup.
India will be stepping into this game without their skipper and ace batsman Virat Kohli and his absence might pave way for young gun Shubman Gill who averaged over 60 in List A games during the Indian domestic season in 2018-19. The Indian camp have further been bolstered by the return of all-rounder Hardik Pandya who pleased with his all-round show in the Bay Oval.
