India vs NZ

India have not defeated the Black Caps in ODI World Cups since 2003

Head-to-Head in marquee event

The Men in Blue have faced the Kiwis 9 times since the 1975 edition

NZ have noses in front!

The Black Caps have won 5 out of those 9 World Cup encounters

India's marginal wins

The Men in Blue have 3 victories to their name, while one game ended in no result

2019 World Cup semifinal

The nightmare no Indian can forget, from 5/3 to 221-all out led to India's ouster from the WC

NZ bowling vs Indian batting

The Kiwi bowling attack has all bases covered while India's batting has never looked more formidable

Bowlers to watch out for

While Mitchell Santner's in stellar form, India will be wary of Matt Henry and Trent Boult - the two bowlers who brought about their downfall in 2019

Indian batters in terrific form

Rohit, Virat are among the top 5 run-getters of 2023 WC & with Gill & Rahul also in good form, this is perhaps India's best chance to beat NZ

Will India break the jinx?

India and NZ are the only 2 undefeated teams in 2023 WC, but Sunday will end with a blemished record for one!
