ICC CWC 2023, India Vs New Zealand semifinal: Betting odds for India is 6/17, for NZ its 11/5

With the high-intensity adrenaline-filled India Vs New Zealand semifinal to be played on 15 November ICC World Cup 2023 at Wankhede Stadium, the betting world has gained momentum too.

Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team, which had been unbeaten in the ongoing World Cup tournament, so far is the current favourite for the betters.

The two-time world champions will take on Kane Williamson-led New Zealand in a nail-biting semifinal clash, and the excitement is at another level.

Looking at history, India was beaten by New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semifinal at Old Trafford Cricket Ground by 18 runs.

For the Black Caps, this tournament has been a roller-coaster ride as they lost to India, Pakistan, Australia, and South Africa initially in the league matches, but did make a comeback by winning the rest five, thereby managing to qualify for the semifinals.
