So far, Rohit Sharma's awesome Men in Blue have very much stuck to the script. They've managed to win all nine group games, seemingly without needing to move out of first gear. Sharma and Virat Kohli have been scoring runs for fun (and even have a wicket each to their name!). And with the irresistible pace attack of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami firing on all cylinders, their world-class spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja have scarcely been needed to make a game changing impact.
Finishing fourth in the table, New Zealand's tournament has been way less consistent. After starting strongly, Kane Williamson's men have won only one of their last five games – really not the kind of form to be greeting this India XI in.
That said, Trent Boult has been getting better and better throughout the competition and has the tools to make thing seriously uncomfortable for Sharma, Kohli, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer and co. And, with 565 runs to his name, 23-year-old Rachin Ravindra has been the CWC's break-out star. With a father from Bengaluru, the stage is set for him to make a real name for himself on Wednesday.
India won a tight encounter between these sides by 4 wickets earlier in the tournament, chasing down a 273 target with two overs to spare. But Blackcap memories will go back further to the 2019 semi-final when they shocked India and the cricket world to win by 18 runs. A victory today in India's backyard would be even more seismic...

Writing off Kiwis' pace troika of Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson and left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner will be naive. They have enough experience and skill to make an impact even on a shirtfront, and will also hope to prey on any pressure India faces in front of the home crowd. For India, a win is non-negotiable and the Blackcaps can play all-out cricket knowing that they really have not much to lose.
Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav have been as lethal as they ever have been but the limelight, to a large extent, has been stolen by Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj who have been unplayable when on song. In this World Cup, no other bowling attack has produced a masterclass in bowling on flat wickets than India's.
Famous Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has arrived at the Wankhede Stadium and shares his insight on the upcoming semi-final game. He is also promoting his upcoming movie 'Animal', which will be releasing on 1st December, 2023.
