Failed to deliver when it mattered: Rohit Sharma

India's fantastic World Cup campaign came to an end with a shocking defeat in the semi-finals at the hands of New Zealand.

New Zealand left-arm seamer Trent Boult has revealed that his side gained "inspiration" from watching Pakistan beat India in the Champions Trophy final in 2017.

The Black Caps set India a target of 240 after completing the remainder of their innings, adding 28 runs from 23 balls. However, he failed to do so against England as well New Zealand.

India enjoyed an impressive run in the group stages, winning seven of their eight matches. And that MS Dhoni was looking for a very hard second run.

Rain interrupted play after 46.1 overs.

India got off a disastrous start as they lost their three crucial wickets in a row in just 3.1 overs. "Don't be too harsh on your team Indian fans". In the one-day game you had five catching fielders. Pandya was struggling with a hip injury in India's semifinal against New Zealand on Wednesday (July 10). He takes wickets upfront and if you do, the death overs aren't as critical.

MS Dhoni, Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli. The report said that while one camp was being led by Kohli, the other camp had its allegiance to vice-captain Rohit Sharma. "All those misses over the years, he only hits when there's nothing to worry about, but he did it now, and we celebrated accordingly and we're very happy for him". A disappointed Rohit walked back to the dressing room with just one run on the board. It is expected that Ambati Rayudu's handling is likely to come up during the review. The on-field umpire declared it an "Out". They lost to England, but still managed to top the group with 15 points from nine matches.

Ross Taylor, who spoke to the media at the end of the match against India, also backed Guptill to come good. The crowd went silent at Old Trafford as Indian fans could scarcely believe what they were seeing. For the Indians, although Umesh Yadav picked up 4 wickets, they were unable to stem the flow of runs. This is a tough team. The team got bowled out for 233 runs in the 47th over to exit from the tournament. Balaji stated that New Zealand will be the 2019 World Cup victor, while Kane Williamson will be the Man of the series. India's top-order crumbled under pressure and the Kiwis secured a place in the final despite fighting half-centuries from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni.
