India and New Zealand go head to head in a blockbuster Cricket World Cup semi-final on Wednesday (8.30am BST).

In a match worthy of a final, the group winners will lock horns with the 2019 finalists of this competition.

A showdown with either South Africa or Australia awaits the winners of this clash in Sunday’s final.

India vs New Zealand Betting Tips

No player has registered more runs at this Cricket World Cup than the talismanic Virat Kohli with 594.

They include two centuries, while he also boasts the highest batting average at the tournament with 99.00 across nine innings.

And as the tension increases with the stage getting bigger, you would certainly expect him to thrive here.

Among the New Zealand players desperate to stop Kohli in this tracks, Trent Boult could be the most likely.

The fast-medium bowler has taken 13 wickets at this tournament, with only South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada (seven) bettering his tally of maidens (six).

Meanwhile, India’s Jasprit Bumrah (303) is the only player with more dot balls than Boult (290), who will know this is a great opportunity to shine for his nation.
