|Venue||Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai|
India are just two games away from a World Cup title. The Men in Blue have been on a roll in the World Cup, winning all nine games they played in league stage. India qualified for the semis as the table toppers. Rohit Sharma’s India does not have a great record in ICC tournaments against New Zealand but they will back themselves to break the jinx this time around.
New Zealand, on the other hand, reached the semis with 10 points. The team has blown hot and cold and will have to be at the peak of their abilities to beat India.
Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction for this match.
The wicket is flat and tailor-made for run scoring. Wankhede has produced some high scoring matches in the tournament and once again a run feast can be expected in Mumbai.
The weather will be bright and clear, with zero chances of rain. The temperature will range in high 20s.
Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Glenn Phillips, Tom Latham (wk), Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
It is time for semis and no team will make any change to the combination unless they have injury concerns. Expect both teams to go in with same combination.
India have won 59 ODI games against New Zealand. However, they have lost all the three ICC knockout games against the Kiwis.

|Bowlers||Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson|
Rohit Sharma has been brilliant in the World Cup 2023. He has scored 501 runs in 9 games at a strike rate of over 120. Rohit has been brutal at the top and put India ahead early in the match. Rohit will be eyeing another big knock at his home ground.
Virat Kohli has been terrific form, in the World Cup. He is the leading run scorer of the tournament with 594 runs in 9 games. Kohli has scored two centuries and five fifties in the tournament. Kohli scored 95 when India played New Zealand in Dharamsala earlier.
Kuldeep Yadav has bowled beautifully in the tournament. He has taken 14 wickets in the tournament but has looked like taking a wicket on every delivery. Kuldeep can be India’s trump card in the semifinal.
Rachin Ravindra has been magnificent for the Kiwis. He has already scored three centuries in the tournament. Rachin at the top will be a key for the New Zealanders.
Trent Boult is not the same bowler he used to be a few years ago but he is still a big threat for India. Boult is an expert in taking early wickets and India’s strength lies in their top order. If he can get Kohli, Rohit out early, it will be great for New Zealand.
