India have enjoyed a flawless start to their ICC Cricket World Cup campaign as the host nation and will aim to maintain their form against high-flying New Zealand at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala on Sunday.
Both teams have won all four of their matches in the competition so far, but it is New Zealand who sit top of the table with a marginally higher net run rate.
India have shown no weaknesses so far in the competition, with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli finding exceptional form with the bat as none of the bowlers have missed their mark. Their games have been sell-outs and included a dominant victory over rivals Pakistan at the 132,000-seater Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
