IND vs NZ LIVE Score: The 2019 ICC World Cup semi-final remains a poignant memory for Indian fans, marked by the heartbreak of India’s defeat to New Zealand. Driven by a desire for redemption, the Indian cricket team is set to face the Kiwis once more in the semi-final of the 2023 edition. The highly anticipated showdown is scheduled to unfold at the historic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

India have been exceptional in the tournament, boasting a flawless record with nine wins in the challenging group stage. Their wins have showcased dominance, winning five matches while chasing and the remaining four while setting a target.

This shows their ability to adapt regardless of the coin toss outcome. The dominance of their nine wins is evident, with no opposing team coming within 100 runs during chases, and only once did they require more than 250 balls to secure win.
