India is coming off from a defeat against Pakistan in the opening encounter of their World Cup campaign. It was their first defeat by the hands of Pakistan, they had won the previous five encounters against Pakistan. The Pakistani players looked determined in that match and outplayed India in every aspect of the game. After that match they carried the momentum forward to defeat New Zealand in their second match, to establish themselves on top of the group table.

India on the other hand has a long gap between their first and second game. They played their first match on the 24th of October, while their second match against New Zealand is on the 31st. After working hard on the aspect that led to a woeful defeat against Pakistan, India decided to have a day off on Friday and was seen playing volleyball.

After Afghanistan emerged victorious against Scotland in their first match, both India and New Zealand have their work cut out to them. With their group too turning into a group of death, both India and New Zealand will be hoping to register their first victory in the tournament. Also considering India’s dodgy past against New Zealand, it will be a tough encounter for them.
