Should India lose to New Zealand now?

Now that it is certain that India plays Kenya in the semi-finals, should they lose to New Zealand in their last Super Six game?

On balance, it seems like the Indians should just go out there and play tough - take some chances maybe - and try to beat New Zealand. Shane Bond notwithstanding, the Indians do look like the better team on paper.
