After a washout last month in what would have been the first meeting between India and New Zealand in the World Cup since 2003, the teams get a chance to lock horns once again in the semifinals.
New Zealand hasn't been in good form of late, with three consecutive losses. In its last outing, it lost to England by 119 runs.
But this blip in form had been preceded by a string of victories. At one point, New Zealand was the only undefeated team, alongside India.

It began its campaign with a 10-wicket victory over Sri Lanka. A nervy win over Bangladesh followed, before the team put up a commanding performance against Afghanistan. Then, there were close wins against South Africa and West Indies.
The losses — against Pakistan, Australia and England — meant it just about managed to sneak in to the semis, in the fourth place.
It's been a contrasting scenario for India. A loss against England was a minor blip in an otherwise supreme run.
Overall, in World Cups, New Zealand leads India 4-3.
