On 9 July, India and New Zealand have come face-to-face for their final battle in the race to the finals of ICC World Cups 12th edition. New Zealand had a rough start as they lost their first wicket too early in the innings, however, the show was save by the captain himself who successfully completed his half century (67).
Kane Williamson also achieved his 500-run mark in this World Cup becoming the highest run-scorer of New Zealand in the World Cup.
Kane has altogether scored 548 runs in 8 matches with the help of 2 centuries and 2 half-centuries in this edition of the World Cup. Earlier, the record was in Martin Guptill’s name who had scored 547 runs in 2015 World Cup.
The semi-final match between India and New Zealand, is being played in Manchester today, 9 July but due to heavy rainfall the match came to a long halt. It is expected that the cut-off time for a 20 over chase is 11:05 PM IST, where India’s target would be 148.
