ICC World Cup: Daniel Vettori feels result vs India won't affect New Zealand's prospects

New Zealand have won all their three matches in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 so far. The team next faces India, a team on a high confidence after win over South Africa and Australia.

The Memories of the win against India in the warm-up match before ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has all but disappeared from memory as New Zealand gears up to face the Men in Blue at Nottingham this Thursday. Both teams are unbeaten in the tournament so far but former Kiwi spinner Daniel Vettori feels the outcome may not have much impact on the Black Caps, either way.

Vettori has played 295 ODIs and 113 Tests in the ICC tournaments, writes that the clash is expected to be a good encounter "Three wins from three is a major confidence boost for New Zealand, but the next game against India is a huge one,'' he writes. "Because they have performed so well for a long time, New Zealand won't be defined by the result or performance in this game, win or lose."

At Present, New Zealand is at the top of the points table with 6 points while India are joint second with England and Australia although the team has played one match less than these two teams.
