Trent Bridge is set to stage its fourth match in this year’s ICC World Cup with India and New Zealand scheduled to meet each other on Thursday 13 June 2019.
Two of the highly-fancied teams, they have both made positive starts to their campaign and go into this clash as the last unbeaten sides left in the competition.
New Zealand have recorded wins over Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, successfully chasing each time.
India have played only two matches, beating South Africa and Australia.
India have a strong record in the World Cup, winning the event in both 1983 and 2011, having also reached the final in 2003.
New Zealand reached their first final four years ago, losing to Australia at Melbourne.
India v New Zealand
India and New Zealand have met in 110 official ODIs, most recently in a five-match series at the start of 2019.
That series was decisively won 4-1 by India in New Zealand, but in a warm-up for this competition the Black Caps turned the tables on their illustrious opponents with an 8-wicket success at The Oval.
India have won 55 of the previous meetings and New Zealand have won 45. The one tied match took place at Auckland in 2014 and a further 9 have been washed away.
India at Trent Bridge
This will be the seventh occasion in which India have played an ODI at Trent Bridge, with two of the previous meetings coming in World Cup clashes.

One-Day Internationals at Trent Bridge
There have been 48 previous One Day Internationals at Trent Bridge, since England and Pakistan played out the first contest here 45 years ago.
This will be the 15th ICC Cricket World Cup match at Trent Bridge, the third involving India and the sixth involving New Zealand.
Trent Bridge ‘Hundreds’
There have now been 25 hundreds scored in ODI matches at Trent Bridge. Understandably, the bulk of them have been scored by English batsmen.
Joe Root and Jos Buttler each scored their second ton on the ground in last week’s match against Pakistan.
Allan Lamb and Nottinghamshire’s Alex Hales are the two other players to each hit two centuries at Trent Bridge.
Other English batsmen to produce three-figure scores in Nottingham have been David Lloyd, Keith Fletcher, Robin Smith, Nick Knight, Alec Stewart, Andrew Strauss, Paul Collingwood, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan and Jason Roy.
Three Australians have reached the landmark at Trent Bridge; Trevor Chappell achieved the feat in a 1983 World Cup match against India, whilst Ricky Ponting and Tim Paine each did it against England in 2009.
Other visiting centurions have been Majid Khan, Zaheer Abbas and Babar Azam of Pakistan, plus Rohit Sharma of India, who made an unbeaten 137 in the 8-wicket win over England last summer.
The highest score made by a New Zealand player at Trent Bridge has been Glenn Turner’s 83 not out in the 1979 World Cup match against Sri Lanka here.
Australia’s Mitchell Starc became the seventh international bowler to take at least 5 wickets in a Trent Bridge ODI last week, when he took 5-46 against West Indies.
Stuart Broad of England and India’s Kapil Dev have also taken five wickets in an innings in Nottingham – Kapil’s feat coming against Australia in 1983 when he took 5-43.
Another Indian bowler, Kuldeep Yadav took 6-25 against England last July, joining England’s Paul Collingwood, Pakistan’s Waqar Younis and Ken MacLeay of Australia, who have all taken six wickets in an innings here.
The venue has played host to two tied matches: in 1989 when England and Australia fought out a tied contest in a 55-over game – 226 runs apiece – and three years ago when both England and Sri Lanka each scored 286.
Perhaps the biggest shock came during a 1983 World Cup match when Zimbabwe beat Australia by 13 runs.
