West Bengal: Cricket fan dies after MS Dhoni gets out

New Zealand stun India to reach Cricket World Cup final

After the wickets of Jadeja and Dhoni, the match slipped from India's hands and New Zealand easily registered an 18-run victory to secure their spot in the tournament's final.

"It was a poor batting performance by the top five players".

New Zealand's bowlers got off to a flying start with the dismissals of KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, who all scored just one run each.

Pakistan lost to India by 124 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method in the group stage of the Champions Trophy, but the men in green absolutely demolished their arch-rivals by 180 runs in the final.

New Zealand went into this semi-final as huge underdogs against the might of India, some even questioning their place in the final four of the competition. The ball was just clipping the bails and he was given out by the on-field umpire.

Needing 240 to win, India would have been the first side to successfully chase down a target at Old Trafford in this tournament, and pretty much everyone would have expected them to do so.

"Indian fans should be proud of the way their team played in the World Cup", he added. Soon after Jadeja returned to pavillion after playing a scintillating knock of 77 runs in 59 balls, Dhoni chose to take control of the Indian run-chase as he despatched Lockie Ferguson for a six.

But Williamson said he was not surprised to see his team come through to set up a final on Sunday against England or Australia.

India and New Zealand or India and England could play against each other.

India, who had topped the points table, faced fourth-positioned New Zealand on July 9.

Jadeja obliged, clubbing four fours and as many sixes, before holing out to long-off off Trent Boult and though Dhoni attempted to up the ante, the veteran was run out following a direct hit from Martin Guptill in the penultimate over as India's hopes vanished. India were reduced to 92/6 30.3 overs when Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja were at the crease. The ICC broadcast captured Dhoni's walk with the former Indian captain crying.
