New Zealand stun India to reach final despite Jadeja heroics

India vs New Zealand,semi-final World Cup 2019

However, Ravindra Jadeja's brilliant knock of 77 from 59 balls, in a partnership of 116 with MS Dhoni, brought about an exhilarating conclusion. The resumption will make a game of 10-over cricket seem sedate, and a T20 positively pedestrian, when New Zealand try to escalate their overnight score of 211 for five off 46.1 overs into a total which stretches India.

At that stage, India were strong favourites but within 19 balls of the chase beginning, the game had been turned on its head. Rohit Sharma was first to fall in the second over, caught behind by Latham off Henry after pushing awkwardly. Seven balls later their captain Kohli was stunned to be given out lbw against a straightening Bolt inswinger, struck on the top of his pads. The India captain reviewed the decision but replays showed the ball was clipping the bails and Kohli tossed his bat into the air in disgust. He was nearly right.

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

It got better for Kane Williamson's side in the final over of the powerplay.

Pandya (32) himself battled for another eight overs before he lost his patience and skied Santner into the legside where Williamson clung on to a tricky catch as he back-peddled from midwicket. India were 175 for 6 in 43 overs. Jadeja hit four fours and And four sixes in his innings.

It would be the 33rd over before they finally broke into three figures, MS Dhoni coming well down the track to strike the first six of India's innings.

The final overs were bowled by pacemen Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, who on Tuesday helped to tie down New Zealand's batsmen with disciplined bowling on a sluggish pitch. Jadeja miscued it, the ball went straight up and Williamson made no mistake as he came round to get underneath.

India got off to a catastrophic start in reply, losing their top three batsmen for one run each - a first in worldwide cricket. Guptill had one stump to aim at as he tore in from the deep, he found his mark and the replays confirmed Dhoni was centimetres short of his ground.

Lockie Ferguson bowled Bhuvneshar for a duck, and with 23 needed from the final over from the last two Indian batsmen, Yuzvendra Chahal was caught behind off Neesham to take New Zealand to their second successive final.
