New Zealand reach another final as India crash out

India made an abject start to their reply, losing three wickets in the space of 11 balls, including the prize scalps of Rohit and Kohli, who had contributed in excess of 1,000 runs in the group stage.

Kohli was effusive in his praise for Ravindra Jadeja (77 off 59 balls), who, in the company of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50), stitched 116 runs for the seventh wicket to keep India in the hunt.

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.

Sharma is the highest run-getter of the tournament as he amassed 648 runs.

Following India's shocking exit, team management and selectors have a lot to ponder over before preparing the team for the 13th edition of the World Cup. Everyone gets disappointed when they get out.

"You come to this tournament where anybody can beat anybody".

"But you have to accept it".

The Indian captain said it's only people out there in the middle, who know how to analyse situations. Maybe. If topping the table means anything.

"At times, I think our shot selection could have been better".

"That is a really valid point".

"I woke up at three in the morning so I didn't know how I was going to go out and bat".

Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a good outing against New Zealand and he was among the wickets as well.

In response, Jadeja, whose place in this star-packed Indian team had been questioned, thanked fans for their support, promising to continue giving his best "till my last breath".

"I hope they're not too angry". With their next global assignment more than two weeks away now, the players are now likely to take a break from the game and head to different directions to spend some time away from the game. "'It's hard to accept and to come to terms with but New Zealand deserve it because they put enough pressure on us and were sharper when it came to the crunch moments", he added. Dhoni did exactly what is expected of him and for what he was criticised in the past.

Asked if Dhoni has said anything about his future plans, with the squad for the West Indies tour to be announced soon, Kohli said, "No he hasn't told us anything as of now".

"Yes, experience at this level and in these occasions is so important and his contribution not only today or yesterday but throughout this campaign was extremely important and that partnership that he was involved in with Jadeja", Williamson said.

Jadeja, batting alongside the more defensive Dhoni, thumped Neesham through midwicket for four before bringing up a counter-attacking 39-ball fifty to the delight of the majority of those inside the ground.
