The hearts are racing as India's must-win match against New Zealand on Sunday in Dubai is inching closer. Having lost their respective opening games, both India and New Zealand are badly searching for a win to keep their chances alive in the tournament. 

Ahead of India-New Zealand high octane clash in Dubai, here we walk through all their matches from the previous editions of the T20 World Cup.

It is quite surprising that the India-New Zealand rivalry in T20 World Cups has been very handpicked. In fact, the two cricketing nations have locked horns only twice in the previous editions of the T20 World Cup.

Kohli will be facing the most defining test of his captaincy career as he expects his men to be the proverbial "phoenix rising from the ashes" when India take on a street-smart New Zealand in a 'do-or-die' ICC T20 World Cup Super 12 game here on Sunday.

Having endured a nightmare last Sunday against Pakistan, a match that they would like to forget in a hurry, India have a lot of course correction to do against the Kiwis, more so in getting the roles assigned for the players right.

It wont be easy against a quality New Zealand, which will come hard at India having also lost to Pakistan in their opening game. Tim Southee and Trent Boult, especially have been a nemesis for the Indians in big games.

However, their soft underbelly is batting where Kane Williamson is still not hundred per cent and Martin Guptill also had a foot injury. It's effective without being flamboyant, although, Devon Conway is a flashy batter.

And herein lies India's chance but for that, their bowlers need to implement the game plans perfectly, something they couldn't against Pakistan.
