Key battles: India v New Zealand
Shane Bond and Sachin Tendulkar
Shane Bond v Sachin Tendulkar

  • Bond has taken four wickets in three matches against India. He has dismissed Sachin Tendulkar once.

  • Tendulkar is the tournament's leading run scorer with 571 runs. His highest score is 152 against Namibia, the second highest individual total in the tournament behind Craig Wishart's 172.

  • Bond claimed 6-23 in New Zealand's 96-run defeat to Australia in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday, the best one-day bowling figures recorded by a New Zealand bowler.

  • Tendulkar recorded his highest career one-day score against New Zealand. He hit 186 not out in India's 174-run victory against the Black Caps in Hyderabad in November 1999.

  • Bond's fastest ball in the tournament was registered at 153.4 km/h (95.3 mph) against Canada. Only Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar and Australia's Brett Lee have bowled faster.

  • Tendulkar has scored 235 runs from five matches at Supersport Park, averaging 47.00, almost two-and-a-half runs above his career average of 44.55.

    Javagal Srinath and Stephen Fleming
    Javagal Srinath v Stephen Fleming

  • Srinath has an excellent record against left-handed batsmen. He has dismissed Sanath Jayasuriya and Aamir Sohail five times, while Brian Lara, Adam Gilchrist and Nick Knight have fallen to him on four occasions.

  • Fleming has also been dismissed four times by Srinath.

  • Supersport Park is not Srinath's favourite ground. In five matches in Centurion, he has only taken two wickets at a cost of 108.00 each.

  • Fleming has played 34 of his 196 previous one-day internationals against India, more than any other country. But he has yet to score a century against them - his best score is 90.

  • Srinath was named India's man-of-the-match after taking 4-35 in India's 183-run victory over Sri Lanka on Monday.

  • Fleming has scored the majority of his 5372 one-day runs batting at either three or four. However, he hit his highest one-day score of 134 not out in New Zealand's nine-wicket Group B victory over South Africa last month.
