As the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 reaches the semi-final stage, all eyes are on the intense clash between India and New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. In this high-stakes encounter, the absence of Matt Henry puts the spotlight on New Zealand's Tim Southee, who must deliver a stellar performance to support Trent Boult and contain India's formidable batting lineup. Jasprit Bumrah, India's bowling maestro, has been exceptional throughout the tournament, boasting outstanding numbers with 17 wickets at an average of 15.64 and an impressive economy rate of 3.65. Can he disrupt New Zealand's top order and pave the way for India's success? Watch out for the breakout star of the World Cup, Rachin Ravindra, whose brilliant all-round skills have been a game-changer for the Kiwis. On the Indian side, Rohit Sharma's remarkable form at the top of the order has been setting the tone for the team's success.
