India will be aiming to seal their qualification to the quarter-finals when they take on New Zealand at the Kalinga Stadium on Sunday. Harmanpreet Singh-led India were clinical in their 4-2 victory against Wales. But they finished in second place in Pool D. England finished at the top due to a superior goal difference. Therefore, India will have to play a crossover match against New Zealand.
Crossover matches are a second chance for those teams who could not book their spot in the quarter-finals of the tournament. This stage also ensures that even the third-placed team in the pool stage gets another shot at the qualification. India will certainly fancy their chances against this New Zealand side. New Zealand registered just one win in Pool C and have failed to perform in clutch situations.
On the other hand, the Blacksticks will look to play solid hockey against the hosts and cause an upset.
