The tournament's only two unbeaten teams are scheduled to face each other on Thursday (June 13) at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Unfortunately, however, all eyes are being taught elsewhere-to be accurate, upward to the sky. Monday morning's persistent rain and a' yellow warning' placed a cloud-no pun designed-over the India-New Zealand game. The cold weather compelled both teams to remain indoors for a few days; New Zealand practiced indoors on Tuesday while India remained indoors literally.

On the eve of the game, Rain relented a little, allowing teams to peep out to practice outdoors. Batsmen from India braved the drizzle and struck the nets, getting throwdowns. The first to bat was Vijay Shankar-maybe an indication that he could slot in the middle order considering that India lost Shikhar Dhawan to injury. The other contender for the slot, Dinesh Karthik also had a relatively lengthy session. Indian bowlers stayed away from the session-why, considering the outfield's wetness, would they risk slipping and wounding themselves.

The forced shift includes a return to the opening position of KL Rahul. There is no doubt that he would also appreciate it; from seven innings he averages 56, while from eight innings elsewhere in the order he averages just 16.66. As an opener came his only ODI ton and two half-centuries. The better opening couple is Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, but Rahul is by no means a poor third choice.

The rejig forces India to alter its game plan. They have no left-handers in the batting unit now, unless they are playing unlikely Ravindra Jadeja. But India is going to think they've covered all the bases. They will have trust in the way they won the first two matches against hard resistance.

India's both matches had all-around wins. The first one was driven by bowlers against South Africa. The second watched the batsmen combine against Australia for a powerful performance.

On the other side, the successes of New Zealand were mainly driven by their bowlers. Sri Lanka for 136 and Afghanistan for 172 were skittled out. They also played Bangladesh for 244 between the two matches.

Among the wickets for New Zealand were Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson and Jimmy Neesham, while Trent Boult was largely a silent supporter. The circumstances in Nottingham are going to excite Boult-if he swings the ball, as he has done on a few occasions, he can run through the Indian line up.

Trent Bridge's wicket is considered to be friendly batsmen, but West Indies have shown against Pakistan and Australia that you can upset raw pace teams. For three days, the pitch has been undercover, and the humidity should help bowlers. The pace and bounce off the wicket, swing in the air-New Zealand has an ideal assault in Henry, Ferguson, and Boult to use the circumstances on offer.

New Zealand selected from three matches 30 wickets, but their batsmen have yet to be correctly tested. In the Bangladesh match, the only time that occurred slightly was when they puff and puffed to a two-wicket victory chasing 245. India, as was obvious in the latest series in New Zealand, could present a distinct challenge.

India will rely on that win, while New Zealand can rely on its victory in the warm-up game prior to World Cup. Much will also rely on the toss; given all the variables, whoever wins will probably field first.
