India and New Zealand both are enjoying a winning streak in the ongoing World Cup so far and it promises to be an exciting spectacle when these cricketing giants will meet on 13th June at Trent Bridge. Ahead of their clash, New Zealand fast bowler, Lockie Ferguson believes taking wickets up front will help in tackling the strong Indian batting line-up.
"They showed us that they're probably a lot more patient in a way. And although we're looking to take wickets, sometimes we got a little bit expensive. I think taking wickets up front is the key to [beating] India but, if not, creating pressure and building dots,” Ferguson said.
The task for New Zealand's bowlers became slightly easier with news that Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan is out with a fractured thumb suffered when scoring 117 in their 36-run win over Australia. However, still, there's a prolific duo of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and talented Hardik Pandya and the veteran MS Dhoni.
