So what will happen to India - New Zealand cricket match now?

Regarding form players, India have the batsman of the tournament in Rohit Sharma. The match will be played at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester. The group stage encounter between India and New Zealand was already washed off, and the Indian fans are anxious about the probable outcome of the semi-final match in case of such an event.

It was, without a doubt, a disappointing day - India were on top on a slow pitch in front of a vociferous crowd, and returning for a second day will be a logistical challenge for some fans. New Zealand had struggled against India earlier this year when they lost the ODI series 4-1 in their own backyard. And this is bound to get even more intense as India is now going to play the semi-final match. But little will it matter on Tuesday as it will be a fresh day and both sides will be itching for a victory.

New Zealand won the toss and had elected to bat first. Now after three defeats the Kiwis come into this semi-final clash as massive underdogs.

Once the spinners came on there was more turn than expected and New Zealand continued to find it hard to score. He had congratulated the team when it reached the semi-finals last week.

India Today TV is India's leading English News Channel. "Now he's controlling the tempo of the game for NZ in every game he plays".

Taylor eventually kicked into gear, launching Chahal over deep mid-wicket for the first maximum of the innings to get to his 50 as New Zealand took 18 from the leg-spinner's final over. Let us begin with Hotstar, the digital arm of Star India and probably the most popular option among viewers in India. "I haven't enjoyed the games where a side makes 350 batting first and the chasing team is out of contention".

Despite half-centuries from skipper Kane Williamson (67 off 95 balls) and veteran Ross Taylor (67 not out off 85 balls), the Black Caps could not force the pace against tournament's best bowling attack.

"We've played really good cricket in Manchester, two really good game, it's just about doing the same things again".

"I've been very happy with holding one end and letting guys express themselves, striking at 150, 160 or 200 if the team needs".
