Group defeats no bother to Williamson ahead of final

Group defeats no bother to Williamson ahead of final

Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri has lauded the national cricket team and its skipper Virat Kohli for their effort in the World Cup, where they crashed out in the semifinal after losing to New Zealand on Wednesday.

The England legend made the bold claim after India were knocked out of the competition by New Zealand earlier today.

Many of them are also a viciously irrational bunch, as has been evident since India's "shock" departure from the World Cup in the hands of a New Zealand side that successfully asphyxiated the "world's strongest batting order" in the first semifinal.

Tournament hosts England and reigning champions Australia will contest the second semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday, with that match able to continue on to Friday if a reserve day is required.

"A lot of heart has been shown by the guys so far but we're keeping our feet on the ground".

"We've spent thousands of pounds on the semi-final and final".

The game was always running against them from that point, and while India did well to stay in the tie until the final few overs, it would've needed a monumental comeback to recover. But, you know, we'll go into another match and try to implement similar things that are important to our side, that gives us the best chance of success. He's a world-class cricketer but is he looking to change nationalities?

Kevin Pietersen thinks England will win the Cricket World Cup this summer, he revealed on Twitter.

It was all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who displayed grit and stitched a century stand with wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni for the seventh-wicket to keep India's hope alive for some time. India enjoyed an impressive run in the group stages, winning seven of their eight matches.

India's top-order crumbled as they were on just five runs after the loss of three wickets in four overs.

Two balls later, Dhoni had run himself out, thanks to a brilliant direct hit by Martin Guptill.

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.

Boult's comments come after New Zealand advanced to the World Cup final after beating India by 18 runs in their semi-final clash in Manchester.
