The league match between these two sides was a washout but who thought that the sides will get a chance to clash after that warm up.
New Zealand record in the -final is very bad and they have only won once in 2015 against South Africa. While India has 50-50 record being lost semi-final in the world Cup.
Indian team openers are in very good form while New Zealand is struggling in this complete tournament with their opening batsmen. There was only England match in which trent boult was not able to take wicket in first powerplay of game.
If new Zealand give both Southee and boult a chance to open bowling then India needs to be very humble and patience because both these bowlers are experienced and know how to take best out of new ball early in the inning.
Kohli, Dhoni, Latham all three have avg above 50 when these two sides clash with each other.
New Zealand has a good record against India in ICC events and especially in crucial matches.
All the matches at Manchester so far in WC are won by batting first side. from betting market point of view also India is favorite right now with odds of 1.33

PITCH & CONDITIONS
A partly cloudy day in Manchester with a very slight chance of rain. In the unlikely event of weather forcing no result tomorrow, the game will recommence the following day (reserve day) from where it was stopped. The result of the toss, too, will be taken forward even if not a single ball is bowled on the scheduled day. Old Trafford has hosted five matches in the league stages, with four of them seeing scores in excess of 290.
The run-in to the knockouts saw pitches progressively playing slower and favouring teams batting first. But the semis, set to be played on fresh centre wickets, should offset the toss advantage somewhat. On the eve of the game, the centre wicket had a caramel tinge to it and should generally hold well for batting.
