After India got knocked out from the semis against New Zealand the players left their hotel on Thursday. However they couldn’t get out of the city as the BCCI had failed to arrange tickets after the ‘shocking’ Word Cup exit

This meant that the two were able to add 116 runs for the seventh wicket partnership. MS Dhoni and Jadeja's power knock kept hopes alive after India's top-order succumbed to New Zealand's pace bowlers, but their efforts were insufficient to take India on the path to its World Cup glory.

Star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli misfired as India's top-three batsmen made just one run apiece, as they lurched to 4-24 and then 6-92 chasing 240 on the reserve day due to heavy rain on Thursday.

New Zealand managed to get to 239 runs for the loss of eight wickets after resuming today and playing the remaining 23 balls of their innings.

A spectacular fight to the finish saw a disciplined New Zealand side outclassing tournament favourites India by 18 runs on Wednesday and advancing to the final of the Cricket World Cup 2019. The Black Caps will face either England or Australia in the final on Sunday.

The 2019 World Cup is taking place in England and the semi-finalists could be India, Australia, New Zealand and England. 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.

"We watched video clips of Pakistan's win against India in the Champions Trophy final for inspiration", Boult was quoted as saying on Twitter. Soon after Jadeja returned to pavillion after playing a scintillating knock of 77 runs in 59 balls, Dhoni chose to take control of the Indian run-chase as he despatched Lockie Ferguson for a six. However, Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni played cautiously and tried to save the sinking Indian side.

As the tension increased, New Zealand grabbed a lifeline when Jadeja holed out to Williamson in the deep off Boult in the 48th over, ending a fine innings of 77 off 59 balls. However, in the end that proved to be not enough, especially after Dhoni was caught short of crease by a brilliant direct hit by Martin Guptill.

James Neesham took the final wicket of Yuzvendra Chahal as India were bowled out, with the Kiwis claiming a dramatic victory.
