'Miracle in Manchester', New Zealand in shock at win over India

'Miracle in Manchester', New Zealand in shock at win over India

India crashed out of the Cricket World Cup 2019 semi finals to New Zealand, after former captain MS Dhoni was run out to hand the Black Caps victory by 18 runs at Old Trafford, leading fans to anticipate his retirement.

From taking a wicket to producing some good catches to even scoring 77 with the bat - this man nearly single-handedly carried India to the finals.

A spirited revival by the legendary MS Dhoni and Ravi Jadeja nearly lifted India to an astonishing recovery - but Williamson's side proved too strong at the death. The Kiwis had lost to Australia in a one-sided final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2015.

All hope looked lost for the Black Caps in the semi-final at Old Trafford after their batting line up was restricted to 239 against the world's best one-day global side - with Williamson himself scoring 67.

After the match, Sanjay Manjrekar tweeted his praise for Jadeja's performance.

Kohli admitted he was heartbroken by the defeat after India had won eight of their nine group matches, losing only against England.

The first semifinal of the World Cup spilled over to the reserve day after rains interrupted the match when New Zealand were 211 for five in 46.1 overs after opting to bat on Tuesday.

The over, bowled by Santner, was all the more precious for New Zealand as it was a wicket maiden.

New Zealand bowlers had successfully restricted the flow of runs while picking up crucial wickets at regular intervals, making it increasingly hard for India to chase the 240-run target set by the Black Caps.

The win ensured New Zealand will feature in a second consecutive World Cup final. The Guardian, in its live coverage of the match, noted: "Had play started at 6.30pm (local time) last night, India would have had to score 148 in 20 overs".

Superb swing bowling by Matt Henry and Trent Boult, however, reduced India to 5-3 before arguably the catch of the tournament by Neesham left the 2011 champions in trouble at 24-4. There could also be more rain. But the ball went straight up and Kane Williamson took a brilliant catch.

Robertson's fellow politicians in Britain for their own Parliamentary Cricket World Cup told Radio New Zealand they had descended on a local pub to watch the game and erupted into cross-party hugs and high fives after the result. The second knockout clash will be played between Australia and England at Edgbaston, Birmingham on July 11.

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