Two undefeated sides of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India and New Zealand will be locking horns against each other at Trent Bridge on Thursday. While India come into this contest with emphatic wins over South Africa and Australia, the Kiwis have registered three wins in three games against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan respectively. The Kiwis had earlier given India a reality check in the warm-up game by reducing them to 91/7, eventually bowling them out for 179 and chasing the target down with almost 13 overs to spare.
However, the 'Rain Gods' interfered and made things more complicated as the die-hard cricket fans were made to wait for the toss to take place, which has been delayed due to the wet outfield. While some fans were hoping for the game to start as soon as possible, there were others who had lost their composure. They took to social media and posted hilarious memes about the toss.
Meanwhile, when it comes to head-to-head World Cup encounters, the Kiwis are ahead of the Men In Blue by a 4-3 margin. New Zealand have registered wins in 1975, 1979, 1992 and 1999 editions respectively while India have won on three occasions- twice in 1987 and once in 2003.
At the same time, the two teams will be meeting each other in a World Cup clash after 16 long years.
