The group round matches in the World Cup have ended and the first semi-final will be played on Wednesday (November 15). In this match, host India faces the challenge of New Zealand. Both the teams will once again face each other in this round after four years. Last time in 2019, the Kiwi team had broken the dreams of crores of Indians and made it to the finals. Team India will come to avenge that defeat. Its eyes are on reaching the finals after 2011. India won the toss and decided to bat first.
Virat Kohli has completed his half-century in 59 balls. Due to his brilliant innings, Team India is moving towards a big score. He has equaled Ricky Ponting in terms of scoring the most 50+ scores in international cricket. India's score has crossed 200 runs for one wicket.
Shubhman Gill has returned to the pavilion after scoring 79 runs in 65 balls. However, he is not out. Due to the heat of Mumbai he faced problems and had to go back. Now he can come to bat again when the wicket falls. Currently Shreyas Iyer and Virat Kohli are at the crease. India's score is 173/1 after 24 overs.
