After the loss against Pakistan, Team India’s eyes are now on the match against New Zealand. The Twenty20 World Cup match between India and New Zealand will be played on October 31 in Dubai.
If Kohli & Company wants to stay in the tournament, they must win this match. However, before the match, some figures are coming out for the Indian team and fans, which is really worrying. A total of seven ICC matches have been played between India and New Zealand since the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup to the final of this year’s World Test Championship, during which the Kiwis have won six matches. Also, one match ended in a draw due to rain. During the T20 World Cup, the two teams met twice in total and both times the Indian team lost. New Zealand had beaten India by 10 runs in the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup and by 47 runs in the 2016 Twenty20 World Cup.
In the 2003 ODI World Cup, Team India last defeated New Zealand in an ICC tournament. India won the match by 7 wickets. Since then, India have never beaten the Kiwis in major tournaments. In the semi-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup, it was New Zealand’s team that shattered the country’s dream of winning the World Cup in an instant by beating India. Williamson & Company beat India by 18 runs in a two-day semi-final match due to rain. This year too, in the final of the World Test Championship, New Zealand defeated India by 8 wickets to win the first title of the Test Championship. Even during the WTC, a two-Test series was played between the two countries, in which New Zealand tasted victory in both.
