Cricket World Cup 2019 Squad
India Team News
India have been dealt a big blow as Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out of the World Cup for three weeks due to a fractured thumb. The opening batsman sustained the injury while batting in the last match against Australia. Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik are the two probable replacement options for Dhawan and one of them will have to bat at number four as KL Rahul is likely to partner Rohit Sharma at the opening position. Since overcast conditions are expected at the Trent Bridge, India may consider bringing in Mohammed Shami in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

New Zealand Team News
New Zealand have no injury concerns heading into this game. They have not felt the need to make any changes to their line-up since their campaign opener against Sri Lanka and it won’t be surprising if they go unchanged for the third consecutive time. Martin Guptill and Colin Munro will continue to open the batting while Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor will be batting at numbers three and four respectively. Trent Boult and Matt Henry are likely to share the new ball once again. Mitchell Santner is the lone spinner in this New Zealand side.

Here is our India vs New Zealand, Cricket World Cup 2019 18th Match Prediction.
India vs New Zealand Toss Prediction
There could be plenty of rain-interruptions which means it won’t be easy for the team batting first to set up a total. So despite four of the last seven completed one-day internationals played at the Trent Bridge having been won by the side batting first, the team that wins the toss here on Thursday is more likely to bowl first.
India vs New Zealand Prediction
New Zealand crushed India when the two teams faced each other in a warm-up match before the start of the World Cup and the Kiwis have a big psychological advantage from that win. They also have plenty of momentum with them having won their first three matches on the bounce. However, all three of those encounters have come against weaker oppositions – Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. India, on the other hand, are coming on the back of impressive wins over two very strong contenders for the title – South Africa and Australia. The Black Caps have not been pushed much until now and it won’t be wrong to say that their real World Cup campaign begins from this game.
India will dearly miss their opener Shikhar Dhawan who returned to full flow against the Aussies, but they still have enough firepower in the tank to overcome the New Zealand pace threat. This will be one of those contests in which the team that bats better will emerge victorious and India’s superior batting strength makes them the favorites to win this battle.
India are expected to get the better of the fighting New Zealand team & India can claim victory.
