The Indian cricket team is all set for the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final scheduled for November 15 (Wednesday) against New Zealand. Both teams enter the game with a 50/50 chance of victory, showing their evenly matched strengths. But India’s overall tournament performance and growing confidence make them the stronger favorites this time around compared to their 2019 World Cup semi-final appearance.

While India will be looking to shake off the pain of Manchester 2019, where they were eliminated from the semi-finals by the New Zealanders, Rohit Sharma’s boys are unlikely to do so with a sense of revenge. It’s more for the purpose of reaching the finals than revenge.

It was not the only time the Kiwis had broken India’s heart. Virat Kohli’s men had lost another major final to New Zealand – the 2021 World Test Championship Final.

While there is undeniably a sense of heartbreak, there is a noticeable absence of anger despite an upcoming clash against the same opponents. However, the anxiety of Indian cricket fans is palpable and is expressed on social media through a continuous meme-fest that is expected to continue till the end of the semi-final with a positive result for Team India.

Social media is abuzz with a plethora of memes, fact sheets and statistics to compare with results as fans prepare for the much-anticipated semi-final clash between India and New Zealand. Fans eagerly share their predictions and analysis, creating a lively and engaging online atmosphere.

We share some of the interesting ones here for you:

The anxiety stems from the fact that India have faced defeats in their last four knockout matches against New Zealand in various formats. But India fans will bet that in the last three ODI World Cups, New Zealand has been eliminated by the country hosting the tournament.
