Indian wickets continued to fall for New Zealand throughout the innings with very little resistance offered by the Indians until MS Dhoni and Ravi Jadeja arrived at the crease in the 22nd and 30th overs respectively.

The Black Caps, who only reached the last four on net run-rate, upset the odds to beat group table-toppers India by 18 runs in a dramatic semi-final at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

"But credit to the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving it around, it was an outstanding skill level on display and they made life very hard for our batsmen".

Young sensation Rishabh Pant had a chance to become a hero as he walked out to bat at number 4 ahead of the vastly experienced MS Dhoni.

Well played guys, throughout the tournament.

"We are not shying away from accepting that we didn't stand up to the challenge and we were not good enough under pressure". No one wants to lose a game.

Kohli categorically said that was not the case, claiming instead that he wanted to discuss with Shastri the mini-targets that the team needed to set during such a chase. "The way they played after the loss of four wickets rather, was quite commendable".

"It was an outstanding way to try and kick things off and try and get into a position of strength and I thought the way the bowlers and the fielders operated throughout, on a big field, was a great effort". I just wish it hadn't rained yesterday. Even in the Champions Trophy final in 2017, he made just 5. "It is very disappointing not turning up when the team wanted me to".

"We are sad, but we are not, you know, devastated because of the kind of cricket that we played in this tournament". Then too, the Men in Blue had advanced to the final after a almost spotless campaign only to falter when it mattered most.
