New Zealand into Cricket World Cup final despite Jadeja’s heroics for India

Facebook  CricketWorldCup

India were in dire straits in their chase when all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja came in at 92 for six.

India's "45 minutes of bad cricket" against New Zealand cost them a place in the World Cup final and "broke our hearts", says captain Virat Kohli.

Following the Black Caps' heroic efforts, Sinha praised Kane Williamson's men in a rather cheeky but appreciative manner, labelling them a group of "overperforming dicks".

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

Jadeja played an important role in giving India hope of progressing to the World Cup final, scoring 77 runs off 58 balls.

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.

In the following over, it was over to Boult as he hooped the ball back in to Kohli and struck him on the pad, it looked good, the umpire agreed and up went the finger. Ball-tracking showed it was just clipping the top of the bails, umpire's call, and that was enough to send an enraged Kohli back to the pavilion for just one - taking his record in World Cup semi-finals to 11 runs in three innings.

The India captain reviewed, indicating he thought the ball was going over the top.

The untimely run-out of Dhoni (50 off 72 balls) in the 49th over was the final nail in the coffin.

Rahul also edged behind off Henry, who had figures of 3-15 in five overs. We were confident despite the start we got. It was then the turn of spinner Mitchell Santner to tie down the middle order in a spell of 2-6 off seven overs, during which he dismissed Risbabh Pant and Hardik Pandya each for 32.

"The way Jadeja and (MS) Dhoni were hitting the ball, they were likely to win, but our fielders were then outstanding".

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

"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".

India's new ball pair of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3-43) and Jasprit Bumrah bowled with impeccable discipline while Jadeja was also very economical with the ball.

"The innings Jadeja played, it was like he was playing on a different wicket, really".
