Williamson hails ´brilliant´ New Zealand after World Cup stunner

Calmness behind Virat Kohli's captaincy is MS Dhoni: Monty Panesar

India's glorious entry into the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 is a matter of pride for every cricket lover.

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.

Kohli suggested the tournament follow the model of the Indian Premier League, in which teams who finish top in the regular season get another chance to reach the final if they lose their first play-off match. The second semifinal is at Edgbaston on Thursday.

India was bowled out for 221 with three balls remaining. The Kiwis had lost to Australia in a one-sided final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2015.

Chasing 240, India were 92/6 and looking down the barrel before Jadeja joined Dhoni and raised hopes of a counter.

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". New Zealand wrapped up their innings on the second day of play at 239-8.

For the first time in worldwide history, a team lost its first three batsmen all for 1 as India saw Sharma, Kohli then Rahul depart in the space of 10 balls and was marooned on 5-3 after 3.1 overs.

Matt Henry and Trent Boult did the damage with the new ball as India´s top three of Rohit Sharma, - who came into match having hit a record five hundreds at a single World Cup - captain Virat Kohli and KL Rahul all fell for a single apiece in pursuit of a seemingly modest target of 240.

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

India's captain reviewed the decision but could not get it overturned. 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.

Rahul refused to learn from the mistakes of the senior batsmen as he kept the bat hanging outside as a Henry delivery took the edge and landed in the hands of wicketkeeper Tom Latham.

Jadeja struck four sixes and four fours in a measured innings but when he mistimed a shot off Boult, Williamson took a catch, India was 208-7 with 13 balls left and the chasers had lost their big-hitter.
