India's World Cup dream shattered as New Zealand win by 18 runs

India's World Cup dream shattered as New Zealand win by 18 runs

He told media after the match: "I thought we managed to scrap it out".

The ICC will meet this month at their annual conference, where it's expected the fixture format of the next World Cup in India and the amount of team who enter will be discussed.

Although the match was forced into a reserve day because of persistent rain on Tuesday, the ground was mostly full of India fans and Kohli's side were among the pre-tournament favourites. Ball-tracking showed it was just clipping the top of the bails, umpire's call, and that was enough to send an enraged Kohli back to the pavilion for just one - taking his record in World Cup semi-finals to 11 runs in three innings.

"So all these guys have a lot of pride and passion to play for their country and they are the ones who feel the most disappointed when a mistake happens".

"You have worked so hard throughout the tournament to build momentum", Kohli said, after India were unable to recover from 24-4 to chase 240 against New Zealand.

England or Australia await in Sunday's final.

Legislators from around the cricketing world gathered in London on Tuesday to play a few overs and leave their political troubles behind - but for some, the hope of a break from the stresses of their day jobs proved elusive.

In what turned out to be a nail-biter, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni took the match really close after the Indian batting top order was quickly bundled out within the first five overs of the innings. He nearly won the match alongside Dhoni and his all-round performance was brilliant for the entire match.

The bowling, however, has been more or less on point throughout the tournament.

It got better for Kane Williamson's side in the final over of the powerplay. "I would give him high marks for that". "They didn't do anything out of the ordinary and kept it simple".

"They knew if those two could stay in and they could get near 250, they could make a match out of it and they ended up winning the match and reaching the final", Srikkanth added. It was remarkable to see the consistency of their fast bowlers. Players around them also will have to take more responsibility.

Highlighting that middle-order is cause of worry, Srikkanth feels India does not need any drastic overhaul and just need to move on from the heart-breaking defeat. "But you have to accept it".
