While India cruised into the 2023 Cricket World Cup semi-finals with nine wins from nine, New Zealand's fate went right down to the wire. The tournament hosts entered today's clash at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as the hot favorites, but sporting law dictates that the only unbeaten team in the competition should be wary of counting their chickens. Read on and we'll show you how to watch the India vs New Zealand live stream from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.

The outcome of the toss was likely to be crucial, and it went India's way today. To nobody's surprise, the hosts chose to bat first, and put up a monster total of 397, off twin centuries from Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. The Black Caps have a mountain to climb.
Bowling conditions have tended to be perfect at the beginning of the second session of play at Wankhede, so much so that in the four previous fixtures that this venue has hosted, the team that batted first won by a landslide on three occasions. The one outlier? The freak result precipitated by Glenn Maxwell's outrageous double-century.
Sticking with unusual statistics, New Zealand have had their title hopes ended by the hosts of the last three ODI World Cups. On the flipside, however, the Black Caps have won their last four knockout ties against India, including the semi-final four years ago.
Daryl Mitchell top-scored with a 130 off 127 when the teams met in the group stage, a game that India won by four wickets thanks to Mohammed Shami's magnificent 5/54. It was a game best characterized by New Zealand's impotence with the ball, however, which you can't do against the likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, though Mitchell Santner and Trent Boult seem to have got their mojo back now.
