First Semifinal at Manchester: India lose to New Zealand by 18 runs, exit World Cup 2019
ICC World Cup 2019 First Semifinal at Manchester: India lose to New Zealand by 18 runs, exit World Cup 2019.
Manchester: New Zealand reached their second World Cup final with a stunning 18-run win over India at Old Trafford on Wednesday. The Black Caps will play hosts England or holders Australia in Sunday's title match at Lord's after pulling off a remarkable triumph against two-time champions India. New Zealand, beaten in the 2015 final by Australia, were restricted to just 239/8 after completing their 50 overs a day later than expected following the suspension of play due to rain on Tuesday. But New Zealand bowlers bowled superbly to rock India, with three top-order wickets from paceman Matthew Henry proving the key contribution in dismissing the pre-tournament favourites for 221.
