India are all set to battle it out against New Zealand in the first semi-final of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday. While the former have been defeated only once in the marquee tournament so far resulting in them being considered favourites, the Black Caps cannot be taken lightly considering the fact that they had remained unbeaten for the first half of the tournament. The two outfits last faced each other in a World Cup clash back in 2003.
