MS Dhoni who was dismissed run-out by Martin Guptill in the first semi-final against New Zealand played a crucial knock at a big stage in crunch moment. England beat Australia by 8 wickets to become the second team to reach the 2019 World Cup final.
"With the new ball, our bowlers tried to move the ball off the seam or in the air".
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 second semifinal is at Edgbaston on Thursday. If Australia wins, it will be a repeat of the 2015 final won by the Australians in Melbourne.
TRT World's Lance Santos has more.
"We spoke about the conditions during the interval, we wanted to put the ball in good areas and move the ball around and put some pressure on India, they are a world-class side", said Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson.Читайте также: Hubble astronomers spot supermassive black holes ‘on collision course’
The Indian top order had earlier collapsed in the face of New Zealand's disciplined bowling and fielding at the Old Trafford, as they chased a 240-run target in the rain-affected first semi-final.
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. It was his shortest ODI innings since the 2017 Champion Trophy. The ball was just clipping the bails and he was given out by the on-field umpire. It was then the turn of spinner Mitchell Santner to tie down the middle order in a spell of 2-6 off seven overs, during which he dismissed Risbabh Pant and Hardik Pandya each for 32. "And so was Dhoni who kept India in the hunt".
After Matt Henry got the scalp of Sharma, Trent Boult trapped Kohli LBW before Henry had India 5-3 with only 19 balls bowled as Rahul was also caught behind.
Dhoni went in the next over and India ran out of deliveries to make a shock exit from the tournament.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
