After that amazing batting by Shikar Dhawan in the last match(117 runs in 109 balls against Aussies), he has been ruled out for next week because of a thumb injury. This is going to be great loos for team India as the set batsman like Dhawan is out of the series. Team India is thinking to get Rishab Pant (Wicket-Keeper, Batsman) into the series after appealing to ICC.
So far the WC Series is going good for Virat and the boys and the match against NZ will be interesting to watch as they have won all the three matches in the series (against Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) and ruling the points table so far with highest Net Run Rate(NRR).
Trent Boult is in full form and is going to be a threat to the Indian batting line up as there is going to be a big change coming up after Shikar Dhawan’s injury.
New Zealand is the only other unbeaten team in the tournament and it could remain so if the weather stays the way it has been over the last couple of days in Nottingham. We hope it doesn’t rain and all the cricket fans get to watch an entertaining match.
INDIA Team :
There are more chances that three pacers may take place in the playing 11 and most probably Vijay Shankar would get a chance to play.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Vijay Shankar/Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav/Mohammed Shami , Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
NEW ZEALAND Team :
So far the team has remained unchanged for the Series and there are chances of Tim Southee getting a chance in the team. If Southee gets a chance and he gets to take the wicket of Rohit Sharma then it would be history and record of Tim getting Rohit out 5 times in ODIs.
Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
