New Zealand stun India to reach final despite Jadeja heroics

New Zealand stun India to reach final despite Jadeja heroics

Sinha, who is of Bengali descent, watched on closely as New Zealand took India to the sword in what would turn out to be one of the best finishes in a world cup knockout match.

"We just wanted to put the ball in the good areas and put pressure on India".

10 overs, 24-4; Dinesh Karthik is brilliantly caught at point for six by Jimmy Neesham, diving low to his left.

But the Black Caps kept their composure, Boult had Jadeja caught in the 48th over and Martin Guptill's superb direct hit ran out Dhoni (50) midway through the 49th as they bowled India out for 221 to secure their place in a second successive World Cup final.

Chasing 240 to make it to Lord's, Matt Henry (3-37) and Trent Boult (2-42) reduced India to 5-3 after just 3.1 overs with Rohit Sharma (1), KL Rahul (1) and Virat Kohli (1) all back in the dressing room.

New Zealand bowlers had successfully restricted the flow of runs while picking up crucial wickets at regular intervals, making it increasingly hard for India to chase the 240-run target set by the Black Caps.

The top-order collapse saw India stranded at 24/4 when Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya joined hands to weave a 47-run partnership for the fifth wicket before a slog sweep off Mitchell Santner saw Pant (32 off 56 balls) walk back to the pavilion, much to the dismay of skipper Virat Kohli in the dressing room. India were 175 for 6 in 43 overs.

This further upset Amy when Curtis taught Maura to dance, something Amy had asked him to do with her multiple times but he hadn't. She subsequently chose to quit the villa to allow Curtis to continue his time on the show without having to worry about her.

The final will be played at 9.30pm Sunday at Lords.

"But the way they bowled in that first half an hour was the difference in the game".

New Zealand could have scooped up another important wicket in the 13th over, when Neesham dropped a catch at midwicket that would have dismissed Pant.

New Zealand are into the Cricket World Cup final after holding their nerve to beat India by 18 runs in a thrilling semi-final at Old Trafford. New Zealand wrapped up their innings on the second day of play at 239-8.

The final overs were bowled by pacemen Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, who on Tuesday helped to tie down New Zealand's batsmen with disciplined bowling on a sluggish pitch.

It is forecast to be cloudy again in Manchester, making batting conditions hard. If there is no result, India will advance because they finished higher in the group standings. Williamson and co. will now play the World Cup finals against the victor of the upcoming Australia-England semifinal fixture.
