CWC 2019: India vs New Zealand Semi Final 1

In the World Cup 2019, the Indian team has showed brilliant display and entered the semifinals being on top of the points table. But now it’s knock out and one mistake means team India out of the tournament. During the league round the team may have been top of the table in performing the best, but there are still some drawbacks, which can make India difficult.

Now if India does not remove these shortcomings in the semifinals, then it can also be the reason for India’s defeat.

 Middle order is failing

The biggest problem of the Indian team is that the middle order is consistently failing. If Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli got out quickly, then in that situation, the team India will be in deep trouble. Rishabh Pant, playing at number four, has failed to make a big score yet. At the same time, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not able to score fast in the last overs.

No finisher

Team India does not have any finisher right now. Dhoni is playing in that role, but he has failed yet. At the same time, only Hardik Pandya is the batsman who is playing big shots  at the end and no other batsman has shown that responsibility so far. Dinesh Karthik was also given the chance in the team, but he also failed to perform. It is very important for the team to fill the place of finisher, otherwise it will be a big loss.

Playing combinations

Team India, which reached the semi-finals, has not been able to decide the playing eleven yet. With regard to Kedar Jadhav or Kartik, Kuldeep Yadav or Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja, the team has not been able to make some decisions yet. If the top order and fast bowling are left in the team, then there is still no clue who will fix for the rest of the places.
