Rain, cloudy conditions and Trent Boult would be three of the greatest threats to ending India’s series of wins in the ICC World Cup 2019 as the Men in Blue land in Trent Bridge to take on New Zealand on Thursday. The gloomy weather is set to make it hard for Virat Kohli’s men who were fixed by the left-arm pace bowling of Boult in comparative climate conditions during the primary warm-up game a month ago.
Aside from India, New Zealand are the only other unbeaten team in the World Cup however the different sides’ difficulties so far have been quite different. While Kohli’s men have beaten two top sides as South Africa and Australia in their two matches up until now, Williamson has driven his team to triumphs over Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan – apparently three of the weakest sides in the tournament.
Shikhar Dhawan’s injury is the greatest hit to India as the left-hander’s nonappearance denies the team of impressive quality. While KL Rahul is a proficient substitution in the opening department, it’s the No. 4 options – Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik – that the team wouldn’t be as confident of.
