Nottingham, June 13, Thursday at 03:00 PM IST
India will be playing their third match of ICC World Cup 2019 against the current table-toppers New Zealand at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Both teams have not lost any of their encounters so far which means, this will be one pulsating contest for sure.
So far, New Zealand have faced sub-continent teams in the competition. They started their campaign with a big win over Sri Lanka by 10 wickets and then went onto defeat Bangladesh and Afghanistan in their following fixtures.
India have also ticked all their boxes so far. Whether it is batting, fielding or bowling, they have been impeccable so far. With wins over two formidable teams in South Africa and Australia, their morale is at the highest level for sure.
The coin will be flipped at 02:30 PM IST.
Always considered as a blessing for batsmen, the surface at Nottingham will once again be batting friendly. However, with the forecast of heavy rains, the possibility of this match being abandoned is high.
