India are in the process of chasing down a tough target set by New Zealand in the first 2019 Cricket World Cup semi-final. The two teams have returned to Old Trafford today to continue their rain-affected match. India were hot favourites, but the Kiwis are making life very difficult for them. So it’s two-time champions facing the 2015 runners-up and you can watch every wicket and run with our India vs New Zealand live stream guide below.
India have impressed throughout the tournament and topped the group stage with seven wins from nine matches. Having made a great start to the tournament, New Zealand shambled into the semi-finals after three humbling defeats on the bounce.
Live stream India vs New Zealand – where and when
This Cricket World Cup semi-final takes place at Old Trafford in Manchester, the regular home venue of Lancashire County Cricket Club.
Play on the reserve day (Wednesday, July 10) begins at 10.30am BST. For those tuning in from India that’s a 3pm New Delhi Time start and a late 9.30pm for those looking to watch live from New Zealand.
As well as having to tackle the competition’s most impressive team thus far, New Zealand will also have a psychological battle with World Cups of the past on their hands at Old Trafford today. The Kiwis have fallen at the last four hurdle on six previous occasions at the World Cup, however they did beat their hoodoo to reach their first ever World Cup final in 2015.
Torrential rain (surprise, surprise) prevented the two teams from meeting in the group phase match at Trent Bridge, something which now looks like a huge stroke of fortune for the Kiwis as the mandatory one point awarded to them may have been divisive in sending them through to today’s game ahead of Pakistan.
The key showdown today will be between Kiwi fast bowler Trent Boult and the seemingly unstoppable batting of Rohit Sharma for India. Having chalked up a cool 647 runs during the 2019 Cricket World Cup so far, Sharma seems unfazed by what type of bowler faces him. One rare bowler who has managed to find Sharma’s apparent achilles heel is Boult, having taken him out with a sweet in-swinger in the two teams’ pre-World Cup warm up.
