New Zealand: The Unyielding Opponent to India

Nasser Hussain tips India as overwhelming favorites for the 2023 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. However, he warns that the Kiwis will not bow down easily. Speaking to Sky Sports, Hussain highlighted his excitement to watch Rachin Ravindra and Virat Kohli bat and praised New Zealand’s tough cricketers. Ravindra has been a standout performer in the 2023 World Cup, scoring 565 runs in nine innings. New Zealand famously defeated India in the 2019 World Cup semi-final, but Team India’s recent form should give them confidence heading into this clash.
