T20 World Cup 2022: Will the India team face New Zealand in the semi-finals? Learn the complete equation

New Zealand have become the first team to reach the semi-finals of the 2022 T20 World Cup. On Friday, New Zealand defeated Ireland by 35 runs to secure their place in the semi-finals. This is New Zealand’s third win in this tournament, making them top of the table in Group 1. Actually, New Zealand’s net run rate is better than England and Australia. That is, in such a situation, New Zealand will surely be at the top of Group 1. At the same time, if the Indian team defeats Zimbabwe in the last match, they will be the table leader in Group 2. If this happens, India will not have to play New Zealand in the semi-finals.

Actually, Team India’s record in ICC tournaments, especially knockout matches, has not been good. In such a situation, the Indian team would like there to be no Kiwi team heading into the semi-finals. Other than this, a total of 20 matches have been played between India and New Zealand in the overall T20 International. The India team won 11 matches while New Zealand won 9 matches. At the same time, the India team failed to beat New Zealand in the T20 World Cup. So far, both teams have met 3 times in the World Cup, the Indian team has lost all three times.

Talking about the India-New Zealand match in the T20 World Cup, both teams met for the first time in the 2007 World Cup. In this match, the Indian team had to face defeat by 10 runs. While in the 2016 T20 World Cup, New Zealand defeated India by 47 runs. At the same time, last year in the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand defeated India in the T20 World Cup for the third time in a row. Other than this, the Kiwi team defeated India in the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-finals, while the India team was defeated by New Zealand in the World Test Championship final.
