Jadeja and veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni, renowned as one of the game's great finishers, rekindled the hopes of the cricket-crazy nation with a fighting seventh-wicket century partnership but it wasn't enough as India, cahsing 240 to win, fell 18 runs short.

"But credit to the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving it around, it was an outstanding skill level on display and they made life very hard for our batsmen". And then it was a brilliant start with the ball. That shows the kind of control they bowled with and they put the fielders in the right positions and that was a ideal spell of fast bowling with the new ball, which really put us under a lot of pressure.

India's hold on the game of cricket and the tournament of the World Cup notwithstanding, New Zealand was always capable of creating this mega-upset. The Virat Kohli-led India were one of the pre-tournament favourites and did justice to their reputation barring the semi-finals where one bad day in the office ended their dreams. Pant come out with a fearless approach and kept releasing the pressure from time to time with eye-catching shots until the moment he got out.

However, India were bowled out for 221 with New Zealand entering a second straight world cup final. India simply did not know what their best middle-order combination was for the World Cup and it came back to bite them hard in a knockout clash.

"We knew we had to run our twos well and use those last 23 deliveries as well as we could to get us to that point". In the one-day game you had five catching fielders. Well played guys, throughout the tournament. However, I think Virat Kohli was unlucky as it was a poor decision to give him out.

Comedian Brendan Grace has passed away
He had been receiving treatment in hospital for pneumonia when the more serious illness was discovered. The Father Ted star passed away peacefully just after midnight, his family say.

There has also been plenty of support on social media from the fans urging MS Dhoni to not retire.

"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".

"To bowl as outstandingly as they did in a high-pressure game makes victory over India one of New Zealand's best ever one-day performances", Vettori wrote in his column for the International Cricket Council.

Jadeja's knock came after his tiff with former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who had called the all-rounder a "bits and pieces player".
