There seems to be a rivalry brewing between the Team India and Team New Zealand in various sports, especially in some World Cup events.
Another example of the India vs New Zealand rivalry was seen on the 22nd of January in Odisha when the Indian hockey team met the New Zealand hockey team in the knock-outs of the FIH Hockey World Cup 2023.
India vs New Zealand is already a big rivalry in the world of cricket. The two teams share a great rivalry and we have found various examples of that.
But the biggest ones would be in the World Cup as well. New Zealand beat India in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in the semi-finals and also beat India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, not allowing India to recover after a defeat against Pakistan in the first match, that eventually led India to be knocked out.
Meanwhile after a new after added to the history books after New Zealand beat India with a supreme comeback from 2-0 down, the Indian now feels scared about the upcoming India vs New Zealand match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.
Currently New Zealand team is playing a 3 match ODI as many T20I series against the Indian team in India and the hosts are dominating the Kiwis.
New Zealand continues to break the hearts of India in sports.— Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) January 22, 2023
