Rohit Sharma-led Men in Blue are all set to take on the mighty New Zealand at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala on Sunday. Going by New Zealand’s impressive records against India, cricket lovers have their fingers crossed and are hopeful that India will win this time.

In ICC tournaments, New Zealand has maintained an impressive record against India BY remaining undefeated for a staggering 20 years. New Zealand is playing impressive cricket in this World Cup and is a major threat for team India.

New Zealand are the reason India were knocked out of the 2019 CWC. It ended India’s dream of being crowned as World Test Champions and played a major role in knocking India out of the 2021 T20I World Cup.

Even as India easily steamrolled its opponents Australia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, it will be a task to defeat New Zealand. New Zealand player Trent Boult, who is a major threat to India, said, “I couldn’t think of a better place than Dharamshala Stadium to take on the host nation that is team India.”

Meanwhile, hilarious memes have started flooding social media as fans wait for the match to begin.

Below are a few hilarious memes:

Worth mentioning that India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been ruled out of the match after he twisted his ankle while bowling in Pune against Bangladesh. He has been sent to Bengaluru for rehabilitation. 

On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav is expected to get a game today and bat at No. 6.
