Ravindra Jadeja ripped me apart on all fronts: Sanjay Manjrekar

Manchester make or break for Black Caps

Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori believes the Black Caps can cause a World Cup semi-final upset against India if they can shake off their recent struggles with a fast start at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

With 16 of the last 20 World Cup matches having been won by the team batting first, Black Caps skipper Williamson made a decision to put India into field at Old Trafford.

New Zealand are at peace with their underdog status and are preparing for a "scrap in tomorrow's World Cup semi-final against India, coach Gary Stead and quick Lockie Ferguson said yesterday". Chasing a tricky target of 240 on a damp pitch, India's famed top-order imploded on a day when it mattered most as a gritty New Zealand survived Jadeja scare to reach their second consecutive final of the world event.

New Zealand survived Jadeja's late onslaught to stun India by 18 runs in a low-scoring thriller on Wednesday.

Jadeja displayed an all-round performance against the Kiwi side as he played a knock of 77 runs and went on to take one wicket. Four years later, they met again in Leeds on June 13, 1979.

And then in Nagpur two weeks later, it was Chetan Sharma's hat-trick that caught the eye along with a Gavaskar hundred in a nine-wicket win.

Compare that with the rest of the semifinalists, and the Black Caps can have few complaints.

President Donald Trump said in December that he'd withdraw forces from Syria, declaring victory against Islamic State. During the ceremony, Trump brought up Wheeler and other aides to praise their environmental stewardship.

New Zealand was 57-1 at the time.

Mark Greatbatch was the star man with 73 as New Zealand ended up topping the points table while India were out before the knockout rounds.

Both are now on commentary duty for the Cricket World Cup in England. The MET department have stated, on Tuesday, it is most likely that there most probable will be "cloudier skies and some showery rain developing at times". The stadium has produced 300 plus scores at 3 out of five games, this is the exact venue where Eoin Morgan unleashed and scored a 17-sixes-innings of 148.

But New Zealand have got all the ingredients in place to put on a big total.

There has been no problem with the bowling attack, which has given up 300 runs only once this tournament and provided plenty of opportunities, largely thanks to the pace attack of Trent Boult and Ferguson.
