Win for New Zealand: If the rain allows the game to start and if New Zealand wins the match, then the kiwis with 8 points from 4 matches will stay put at the top of the world cup points table, getting a good headstart to the semi-finals.

Win for India: A win for India would mean a perfect start for the team, with three consecutive wins over big cricketing teams. It would also put India on the same level with New Zealand and Australia with 6 points each but in 3 games instead of 4.
