After 45 group matches, four teams it’s down to the last four teams in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
The first semi-final will see fourth-place New Zealand take on the table-toppers India.
The Kiwis have had a poor record in semis being knocked out in 1975, 1979, 1992, 1999, 2007 and 2011 in semis.
The only exception was in 2015 where they went on to lose the final to Australia. India, in contrast, has gone past the Semis in 3 occasions and crowned champions twice.
The winner will face either England or Australia, who play their semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday.
Players to look out for:
Rohit Sharma (647 runs, five centuries, HS 122*, Avg 92.42)
Jasprit Bumrah (17 wickets @ 19.51, Best 4-55)
Kane Williamson (481 runs, two centuries, HS 148, Avg 96,20 )
Lockie Ferguson (17 wickets @ 18.58, Best 4-37)
Lockie Ferguson returns to for the Kiwis are missing out in their last group stages match due to injury. India lost Vijay Shankar and Shikar Dhawan earlier in the tournament and a Jasprit Bumrah scare vs Afghanistan. However, they have been given a clean bill of health.
Our Predicted Winner:
The teams go head to head in Manchester at Old Trafford on Tuesday at 11h30 SAST with scattered showers expected throughout the day.
