ICC World Cup 2019: Match 18, India vs New Zealand – India’s Predicted Playing XI
Indian National Cricket Team have made a thumping start to their ICC World Cup 2019 beating South Africa and Australia in the first two games. Next up, India take on New Zealand on June 13 (Thursday) at Trent Bridge in Nottingham and will be keen to break the Kiwis winning run in the tournament.
Meanwhile, the Men in Blues received a massive blow on the eve of the game with their in-form opener Shikhar Dhawan ruled out for three weeks with a finger injury. The untimely damage of Dhawan will force Virat Kohli to make a change to their winning combination. KL Rahul will likely slot in the top-order while Dinesh Karthik will bat at four considering his experience playing at this stage and in England before.
Otherwise, India are likely to retain the same playing XI from their last match against defending champions Australia.
Here is the predicted playing XI of India for match 18 of the ICC World Cup 2019 against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in Nottingham:
