India v New Zealand, ODI series - Head to Head stats

NOTTINGHAM: Having made it three wins from three games, a dominant India would want to extend their ruthlessness when they take on a feisty New Zealand at Trent Bridge. It’s a contest that pits the only two unbeaten teams in the World Cup so far, a tournament where New Zealand have had the upper hand over India.

The two teams have faced each other on 106 occasions in one-day internationals, but while India boasts a better record overall, New Zealand leads 4-3 in World Cups. Provided the weather permits an eighth contest between them at cricket’s biggest festival, we look back at their history at the World Cup.

Ton-up Turner guides New Zealand home

India and New Zealand faced each other in the first World Cup in 1975, a  match in which opener Glenn Turner struck an unbeaten century to guide his team home. After the top order failed to fire, Syed Abid Ali, batting at No. 7, scored a 70 off 98 balls with five boundaries and a six to guide India to 233 in 60 overs. Ali later returned to pick up 2 for 35, but Turner ensured he stayed till the very end and struck a glorious, unbeaten 114.
