New Zealand wins toss, bats 1st vs India

Manchester make or break for Black Caps

Kohli's India won the game and went on to clinch the title at Kuala Lumpur and Williamson would dearly love to avenge that loss when they meet again for much higher stakes on Tuesday.

However, the Black Caps can clutch to one game in particular, in Hamilton where Trent Boult ripped through the Indian top order with 5-21, and India were routed for an ODI record low of 92. The Proteas have been in all sorts of strife this World Cup but the way they started that game gave them huge confidence to go on and get over the line.

The Black Caps have one more training session to get through, but should have a fit and healthy 15 to pick from.

Every squad member is healthy, but can they all perform on the day?

Meanwhile, New Zealand hasn't yet posted a big score on the board.

India is a familiar opponent, but not at World Cups.

Bumrah is now leading the wickets tally for India at the showpiece event with 17 wickets from eight matches and is tied on the overall list at third place with New Zealand's Lockie Ferguson who also has taken the same number of wickets. However, he used Yuzvendra Chahal's hilarious meme replacing it with Manjrekar's face and has urged him to unblock him on Twitter.

Stead is picking 300 to be the magic mark at Old Trafford, especially with a new wicket being prepared for the occasion.

The Black Caps will be hoping for a change of fortune for Guptill, who was in smashing form in the last World Cup when he hit the tournament's best ever individual score of 237 not out against West Indies.

Zaheer Khan knocked over New Zealand for only 146, the left-armer at the peak of his powers in taking 4/42.

"A three-match losing streak can evaporate pretty quickly with a great 10 overs at the start", Vettori wrote in his International Cricket Council column.

If New Zealand get off to a great start, with bat or ball, the streak will soon be forgotten.

There are an additional two hours' playing time in which to complete the match on Tuesday, although match referee David Boon can use his discretion to extend the playing hours further in he feels there is a realistic chance of achieving a result.

"The next two days is about that balance being ready and not overdoing it".
