Sharma, going by the form, should be able to set a new record on Tuesday inside the first Power Play when the first of the semifinals will be held at Old Trafford, Manchester, against Kane Williamson's New Zealand. New Zealand's batsmen were troubled by the Indian spinners in the past.

Ahead of India's semi-final with New Zealand in the World Cup 2019 wrestler John Cena posted a picture of Kohli shaking hands with nobody. India have already played two matches at this venue in this edition, having won against Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS method) and the West Indies by 125 runs. Rahul crafted a masterful century to make light work of Sri Lanka in Leeds, while Shami has picked up 14 scalps in his four outings so far, including a magnificent hat-trick against Afghanistan, the cricketing start-up which almost inflicted a defeat on India in Southampton. After remaining unbeaten for a large part, they ended up losing the last 3 games. However, the Kiwis had beaten India in the warm-up match prior to the tournament. When the sides met in New Zealand in January India took the series 4-1. They could do it two ways, either bring back Colin Munro and drop Henry Nicholls or interchange the batting positions of Nicholls and Tom Latham. With three defeats in their nine matches, the Black Caps could only garner 11 points in an equal number of matches.

Bidding farewell to one of the finest leaders the sport has seen would be an emotional moment but skipper Virat Kohli is not ready to give away.

Sky Sports will telecast the match live in New Zealand.

Kohli expects Williamson, New Zealand's leading scorer in the tournament, to play a similar role on Tuesday and identified him and Ross Taylor as the key wickets for his bowlers. He has scored 647 runs in eight innings so far, with five centuries and a fifty at an average of 92.42. "We are used to that to be quite honest", said Kohli, who was part of India's World Cup-winning team in 2011.
