Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
The first semi-final will be between India and New Zealand.
The match will be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on November 15.
The venue has been familiar and lucky charm for the Indian team,
as India won its last ODI World Cup at the same venue in 2011 led by MS Dhoni.
New Zealand didn’t play as single game at Wankhede Stadium this World Cup,
but India’s most dominant win came at the same venue against Sri Lanka with a margin of 302 runs.
India’s Toss has not been a problem since they have lost five out of the nine outcomes and still managed to be victorious in all of them.
New Zealand have had mixed results on both toss outcomes. Toss at Wankhede, in this world cup, has not made an impact in the result of the game,
with three out of four games won by teams losing the toss.
After 10 teams, 45 games, and more than a month of thrilling cricket, it has come to down to 4 teams battling it out for a place in the summit clash.
The earlier meeting of these teams in the world cup resulted in India winning the match with four wickets to spare. India are unbeaten in this World Cup going into the knockout stages.
New Zealand on the other hand, have lost four out of their last five matches in the group stage.
