India who top the table in ICC world cup 2023 where team has been seen in great form in all of his aspects whether its bowling department or batting department they just game their all to the game and made it to the top of the table in this world cup . where as on the other side New Zealand also started on a positive note until their clash against india in the league round where india beat New Zealand and take their half revenge against them and after the loss against India New Zealand also lose some games but in the end they made it to the semi – finals .

Mike Hesson said – “I guess it’s a little bit of the David and Goliath scenario. Isn’t it? India have been through the tournament unbeaten and are in fine form — so many match-winners against a team, who just keeps fronting up,”

“The Wankhede is actually a good ground for New Zealand. If you’re going to play India at any ground, Mumbai is not a bad one. I think our bowling attack will get some bounce there. So therefore if we get bounce, we’ve got to take early wickets.

“New Zealand’s had some success there (at the Wankhede). I remember an ODI not so long ago chasing after being in trouble there (in 2017, they beat India by six wickets chasing 281). I think Tom Latham got 100 (103 not out), so he’ll have fond memories of the venue and he’s probably one of that top order who probably hasn’t been in vintage touch. The rest of the top four have been flying. Glenn Phillips has done pretty well and I think if Latham can tackle the spin at the Wankhede, which he’s done in the past, that’ll be hugely influential.”

Hesson believes toss will not make any issue in this match -“I don’t think the toss is as important as potentially some other grounds, which is great. Heading into a semifinal, you don’t want the toss to have such a big say in the outcome. I don’t think New Zealand will have any issues batting first if they had to, whereas in some other grounds where it just gets so wet and the dew comes in, it can be too challenging. New Zealand will also swing the ball under lights if they bowl second, you know. I think it’s an even battle regardless of the toss, which is a good thing.”

Rachin Ravindra a ‘X’ factor

The indian origin young left hand batsman cum all rounder rachin ravindra who just made every one surprised with his performance where he is listed in the top batsman’s list in this world cup and he is going to be an ‘X’ factor in this upcoming game of New Zealand against India . rachin is also a left arm finger spinner who can give a handy spell of 6-7 overs in the middle overs .

Hesson thinks Rachin Ravindra has surprised everyone with his performance. He thinks the Indian origin batsman has been a huge bonus for the side. “With Rachin there, who obviously got runs against India in the last game, he’s confident and he’s a bit of a bonus (for us) — probably a surprise package. No one on the New Zealand side anticipated Rachin to be that good. He’s a bit of an X-Factor that I think New Zealand will rely on.
