The last two unbeaten teams in the Cricket World Cup meet when India plays New Zealand at Nottingham on Thursday.

New Zealand is 3-0 and India 2-0 to start the tournament.

Two-time World Cup champion India has won six of the last seven one-day internationals against New Zealand, including the most recent in February.

But in World Cup history, New Zealand leads India 4-3, including their only previous encounter at Nottingham in 1999.

India captain Virat Kohli needs 57 runs to become the ninth player to score 11,000 ODI runs.

Opener Rohit Sharma's last four ODI innings are 95, 56, 122 not out, and 57, his longest run of 50-plus scores in ODIs. If he scores another, he will be the fourth player from India to achieve the feat after Sachin Tendulkar, Kohli (twice), and Ajinkya Rahane.

Opener Martin Guptill needs 93 more runs to become the second New Zealand player after Stephen Fleming (1,075) to score 1,000 World Cup runs.

The forecast is for showers to 5 p.m.
