New Zealand stun India to reach final

New Zealand stun India to reach final

The Duckworth-Lewis and Stern (DLS) method will come into play if there are rain interruptions on the reserve day.

The opening semi-final of the Cricket World Cup was restarted on the second day after rain prevented the match finishing as scheduled on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was delighted to have made it through to the World Cup final.

Virat Kohli has suggested the International Cricket Council may want to consider changing the format of the World Cup after India's dramatic semi-final exit. They were 211/5 in 46.1 overs when rain interrupted the match.

"But credit to the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving it around, it was an outstanding skill level on display and they made life very hard for our batsmen".

Twice champions India were reeling at 24-4 in their chase for a modest victory target of 240 in what had appeared to be a lop-sided semi-final.

Defending 239-8, Matt Henry and Trent Boult blew away India's star-studded top order that included Kohli and Rohit Sharma, the tournament's leading scorer, to reduce them to five for three wickets inside four overs.

The R&A said the terrain at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland was not suited to golf carts and the club did not permit their use. The 40-year-old's best showing at the competition was in 2014 at Royal Liverpool when he finished in a tie for 54th place.

"We knew that we had a good day yesterday and we were proud of that effort".

Jadeja's innings gave Indian fans a glimmer of a possible comeback after they witnessed their top order fall like a pack of cards.

Rishabh Pant (32) was then dropped by Neesham off Lockie Ferguson with the score on 35 but the 21-year-old left-hander was unable to take full advantage of his good fortune when he holed out off Santner after a 47-run stand with Hardik Pandya. For the match to be finished, India are needed to bat for minimum 20 overs.

Summing up India's overall performance in this World Cup, Kohli said, "At times, I think our shot-selection could have been better".

Taylor remained unbeaten on 67, and will be crucial to New Zealand's attempts to cash in on the final 23 balls of their innings this morning.

MS Dhoni was on strike, he walloped the first ball of the 49th ball for a six over point, defended the next ball and pushed for a couple on the third ball. "To dismiss Dhoni in whatever fashion is extremely important, but for a direct hit run-out very, very similar to Jadeja's [run out of Ross Taylor] - I think was a big moment in the game". Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets for 43.
