New Zealand stun India by 18 runs to reach World Cup final

Ross Taylor and Tom Latham will continue to the New Zealand innings

"Always feels bad when you play well all tournament and then 45 minutes of bad cricket puts you out", said Virat on India's performance.

"You have worked so hard throughout the tournament to build momentum", Kohli said, after India were unable to recover from 24-4 to chase 240 against New Zealand. "But the way they bowled in that first half an hour was the difference in the game".

"Obviously, they are world-class batsmen - Hardik, Dhoni and Jadeja - we knew to win the game we had to get them out", he said.

"We showed plenty of heart and the fielders and bowlers were outstanding". I don't think India need to make any drastic changes, they just need to look at that middle order. "They have world-class finishers and we knew we'd have to bowl them out to win".

From the next ball, the first of the penultimate over delivered by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Tom Latham struck cleanly high towards the leg-side boundary only for Jadeja to intervene again, leaping to catch two-handed above his head.

Two moments of brilliance in the field - a low catch from Jimmy Neesham and Martin Guptill's direct hit to dismiss the risky Jadeja for 77 - also contributed to a stunning win.

Peep! We are underway in Cairo! "South Africans are not naturally mobile", he added. It's his first goal for the Super Eagles! .

The pair gave India hope during a World Cup record seventh-wicket stand of 116, with the former leading the way with 77. "The way he played today was a great sign for his skillsets and what he can do for the team, and just going out with so much clarity and turning the whole game around in no time was outstanding to see".

After returning on Wednesday to add another 28 runs at the expense of three wickets in the few overs that remained, Williamson's side faced the daunting prospect of attempting to thwart India's prolific batting line-up.

Kohli lauded India's show overall in the World Cup, only pointing to stray instances of poor shot selection as areas for improvement.

I think because of the rain and the match getting spilled over to a second day, that was in my opinion one of the root causes for the defeat as far as India is concerned. "Otherwise, we played really good brand of cricket and we're really proud of the way we competed in this tournament".

The New Zealand Herald said Guptill's run out of Dhoni, arguably the world's best finisher in ODI cricket, was redemption for a poor run of form with the bat, while Stuff Media said he had gone "From zero to hero".
