New Zealand – Brazil Match Prediction | 25-08-2019 08:00

Virat Kohli continues to hold his position as the world's best ODI batsman. With a century and a half-century in the two respective matches, Rohit Sharma is currently India's leading run-getter in this World Cup 2019. MS Dhoni's calmness at the crease and Hardik Pandya's brute force will be crucial in the middle order. And with Shikhar Dhawan out of action for three weeks, the onus will be on him to provide a good start to the Indian innings. The skipper is coming off a fine knock of 82 against Australia and he will look to follow that up with another strong performance.

The top 3 batsmen gave a good start, with openers scoring 44 each, followed a fifty from Babar Azam at number 3. This match promises to be an exciting and close encounter between the two teams, and will be a matter of nerves and temperament. Pakistan has a very strong chance of winning this match against New Zealand, given their team composition. Pakistan are still in the hunt for semi-finals and if they continue to put up a fight, playing good cricket against NZ bowlers, they would likely put up a decent total on the board.

The way Australia beat New Zealand by packing the entire team for an overall score of 157 at 43.4 overs is extremely distressing for New Zealand. On the other hand, England played beautifully against India in their previous match by putting up a chasing score of 337. This match is expected to decide the clashing teams fate in the CWC 2019.

They have won their first two encounters in the tournament rather convincingly and are currently placed third on the CWC 2019 points table with four points. After beating South Africa by six wickets in their campaign opener at Southampton, India got the better of Australia by 36 runs at London in their last game. India have won 10 out of the 15 one-day internationals they have played so far this year. They lost to Australia 2-3 in a five-match ODI series at home before coming into the World Cup.

Ross Taylor is ranked third in the ICC ODI rankings for batsmen. The veteran scored 82 and 48 against Bangladesh and Afghanistan respectively and the Kiwis will be looking forward to another big knock from him. The top four - Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor - have all hit a half-century in this World Cup. Kane Williamson has scores of 40 and 79* in his two innings and he will be expected to lead from the front again.

Following their mortifying group stage exit in 2015 World Cup, where the team won just two games, the England ODI team has undergone an implausible transformation. England has set the two highest scores in the international history by passing 400 four times.

Australia is all set to take on New Zealand in the 37th match of the ICC World Cup 2019. The only match they lost was against India. They are the defending champions after all and have also been playing extremely well. After beating England in the 32nd match of this edition of the world cup, Australia is the first team to enter the semi-finals.

IND vs NZ Head to Head

These are three batsmen we think are best placed to be able to make the most of the opportunity to score runs. Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan are two more players that we think have the mental capacity to come play freely in the World Cup final. Batsmen: We have picked just three batsmen in our Dream11 team for the England vs New Zealand world cup final. Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow, and Eoin Morgan. Williamson is averaging 91.33 in the tournament so far and is in excellent form.

New Zealand crushed India when the two teams faced each other in a warm-up match before the start of the World Cup and the Kiwis have a big psychological advantage from that win. The Black Caps have not been pushed much until now and it won't be wrong to say that their real World Cup campaign begins from this game. However, all three of those encounters have come against weaker oppositions - Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. They also have plenty of momentum with them having won their first three matches on the bounce. India, on the other hand, are coming on the back of impressive wins over two very strong contenders for the title - South Africa and Australia.

There could be plenty of rain-interruptions which means it won't be easy for the team batting first to set up a total. So despite four of the last seven completed one-day internationals played at the Trent Bridge having been won by the side batting first, the team that wins the toss here on Thursday is more likely to bowl first.
