India were down to 5/3 while chasing 240 but fighting innings from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni saw India come excruciatingly close to the target. "It was a brilliant fightback from the lower order after the top-order batsmen gave away their wickets on ordinary deliveries", Akhtar said in a video posted on his Youtube channel.

Boult and Henry shared five wickets while spinner Mitchell Santner claimed two in a tight display to snuff out India's hopes. So New Zealand welcomed KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma with five fielders in catching positions. And despite a spirited comeback, led by Ravi Jadeja and MS Dhoni, the damage proved too much to overcome in an 18-run defeat. "Just to watch the ball and catch it, which was nice that it stuck", said Williamson.

"It was unfortunate that Jadeja got out to a ball that he could have hit for a six".

"I don't think that I would like to break things down immediately, but in time we'll have to sit down and analyse where we went wrong and the things we could have done right in this game particularly", said Kohli.

Sachin Tendulkar lauded Jadeja for his special knock and also praised Dhoni for being the guiding force behind that seventh-wicket partnership which nearly won the game for India in Manchester. "And had Dhoni dived, who knows, he wouldn't have got run-out and would have taken India across the finishing line", he added.

"But whatever happens it's going to be a great occasion, and the Black Caps can go into that game with a lot of confidence behind them".

The unexpected loss left a largely Indian-dominated crowd at Old Trafford disappointed, while a billion fans back home tried to come to terms with the heartbreaking end of the team's bid for a third World Cup crown. While that did not look like a substantial total at the time, a pair of hard-worked half-centuries from Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor had made it clear that the surface was not easy for run-scoring. "However, he was unfortunate and couldn't take India to the finals".

New Zealand will now go on to play either England or Australia in the final who play their semifinal in Birmingham on Thursday.
