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

Manchester weather today update,India vs New Zealand,semi-finals

"We will come out better cricketers because of this setback".

New Zealand made their second straight World Cup final after a splendid performance in the field against India, in a semi-final contest that went to the reserve day.

The 40-year-old Tendulkar, who is now serving as a television pundit for Star Sports the official broadcaster of the World Cup in India, said in an interview with India Today: "I have said in a number of interviews that Kane Williamson as captain has a smart, thinking brain and he is always in control".

Dinesh Karthik (6) had to walk off after James Neesham took an exceptional one-handed catch at backward point on a delivery by Henry in the 10th over.

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 Chase television star Paul Sinha has tweeted his admiration for the Black Caps after they stunned India by 18 runs in the Cricket World Cup semifinal overnight.

Three balls later, two became three when Rahul played loosely outside off and failed to withdraw his bat in time as he nicked behind, 5-3.

New Zealand, beaten in the 2015 final by Australia, were restricted to just 239-8 after completing their 50 overs a day later than expected following the suspension of play due to rain yesterday. All-rounder Jadeja rode his luck, almost holing out to Taylor off Neesham, but he was the only Indian batsman scoring at more than a run a ball and the pair rallied valiantly to need 52 from the final 30 balls of their innings.

Over the course of the next 17 overs though, India clawed their way back.

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

So that shows the kind of control they bowled with - they put the fielders in the right positions and that was a ideal spell of fast bowling with the new ball, which put us under a lot of pressure".

Dhoni ramped up the pressure about with a six carved over the offside from the first ball of the next over but he was gone two balls later, sprinting to get back for two.

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. This came after Manjrekar called Jadeja a "bits and pieces" player.
