IND vs NZ World Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli write India’s narrative; defeat New Zealand after 20 years

Kohli and Rohit had endured disappointments against New Zealand in recent matches, but this time, they displayed determination and resilience.

Four years ago in Manchester, Rohit Sharma watched as his World Cup campaign came to a sudden halt. But during the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 match against New Zealand, he had the chance for redemption, and along with Virat Kohli, he made a powerful statement. Both Kohli and Rohit had endured disappointments against New Zealand in recent matches, but this time, they displayed determination and resilience.

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli struggle against left-arm bowlers

Rohit, in particular, overcame his previous struggles against New Zealand’s left-arm pace and played a dominant role in India’s victory. Kohli, who has faced difficulties against left-arm spinners, also improved his performance against them in the game.

Rohit’s 2019 WC campaign

In the 2019 World Cup, Rohit had fallen victim to New Zealand’s Matt Henry, but in this match, he took charge and attacked the New Zealand bowlers, delivering a brilliant performance. He stepped out to the fast bowler and hit two sixes, reminiscent of what Sachin Tendulkar did against Henry Olonga 25 years ago. Rohit didn’t allow Boult, who had dismissed him four times previously, to settle. His explosive batting made India’s chase look effortless.

Virat Kohli fell early in 2019

Kohli faced New Zealand’s left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner, who had previously troubled him. However, Kohli managed to overcome his weakness and played a pivotal role in India’s win. He hit a crucial six against left-arm spin, marking a significant improvement in his performance against such bowlers. With KL Rahul’s dismissal and Suryakumar Yadav’s run-out, the match became tense, but Kohli’s composure and Rohit’s aggressive batting helped India secure victory.

Rohit Sharma, Virat take India’s revenge

The win against New Zealand was a satisfying moment for both players, who had experienced past disappointments against the same team. This victory not only bolstered India’s chances in the World Cup but also served as a statement of their resilience and determination.
