Team India is ready for Kiwi challenge today at the first semifinals in Old Trafford, Manchester. India goes into the match with a super show in league stage. Having topped the league stages with seven victories, one washout and a loss, while New Zealand managed five victories, one washout and three loses. India had lost to Kiwis in the warm-up match. They could not handle the seaming deliveries of Trent Boult.
The big question is will India retain Raveendra Jadeja. He is a experienced cricketer. Many say Bhuvi should partner Bumrah instead of Shami.Virat Kohli is due for big score. He has had wonderful starts. He scored five half centuries in the tournament so far. Record-breaking Rohit Sharma has taken his game to another level with five World Cup centuries in eight innings, while Rahul playing in place of injured Dhawan scored a century in the last match. He looks compact.
