India's World Cup dream shattered as New Zealand win by 18 runs

Pakistani parliamentarians at the first Inter Parliamentary Cricket World Cup

India were reduced to 24 for 4 in chase of 240, but Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni put up a fight in a thrilling finish.

The way the chase panned out vindicated New Zealand captain Kane Williamson's attritional approach to batting on hard conditions on Tuesday, which ended prematurely because of rain with the Blacks Caps 211-5 with 3.5 overs remaining.

"We wanted 240, 250". 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. While browsing social media, we came across Amitabh Bachchan's hilarious meme that hints at the ongoing India Vs. Jadeja hit four fours and And four sixes in his innings.

"They had ideal line and lengths and forced us to make errors, or bowled good deliveries to us so the pressure created was enormous in those first 40 minutes".

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.

The horror continued for India as KL Rahul became the third Indian top order batsman to depart for one, Henry's second caught-behind victim.

Pandya, struggling with a hip injury, also made 32 before throwing away his wicket.

He and Dhoni (50) kept India afloat in the chase which was eventually derailed when both fell in successive overs.

"We thought we had restricted them to a total that is chaseable on any surface", Kohli said.

"We had a good day yesterday and I'm very proud of that effort".

"New Zealand deserve a lot of credit because they put up a great display how to bowl with the new ball".

Williamson had won the toss on Tuesday and opted to bat at a venue where teams batting first had won all five previous matches in the tournament. Ross Taylor had added just seven runs to his overnight 67 before being superbly run out by a direct hit from Ravindra Jadeja.

On a wicket tailor-made for the bowlers, Jadeja did play a blinder (77 off 59 balls).

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.
