USA vs IND, WI vs NZ: Today’s World Cup match team news

USA news

Two wins in two matches pushed the USA towards a Super Eights berth. All they need now is one point from their remaining two games, against India and Ireland. India will be favourites here, but on the much-debated low-scoring New York surface, anything is possible.

India news

Like the USA, India, too, need one point to make it through to the second round, but they have a net run rate so good (+1.455) that they are all set to make it unless they lose to both the USA and Canada by colossal margins. They may get Yashasvi Jaiswal in for Shivam Dube, but that would mean a reshuffle of the batting order.

West Indies news

West Indies’s numbers (two matches, two wins, NRR +3.574) look terrific, but they are yet to play the Full Members. A win here will help them qualify. It is to be seen whether they back Shimron Hetmyer for this key clash.

New Zealand news

New Zealand’s NRR took a substantial blow after their 84-run defeat against Afghanistan. If they qualify, it is very likely to be at the cost of the West Indies, whom they have to beat today. If they fail to do that, they will be as good as eliminated.

USA vs IND, WI vs NZ: Prediction for today’s T20 World Cup match

India are favourites against the USA, but as mentioned before, the variance of scores is lower on the bowler-friendly New York surface. That will reduce the gap between the sides.

At home, West Indies are also likely to prevail over a New Zealand side that looked rusty against Afghanistan.
