Kane Williamson gets revenge on Virat Kohli for 2008 semi loss

Kane Williamson gets revenge on Virat Kohli for 2008 semi loss”

"All those first three wickets, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, were outstanding global wicket-taking deliveries and got rid of players who were in brilliant form", he added. "Otherwise, we played really good brand of cricket and we're really proud of the way we competed in this tournament".

"To go out on 45 minutes of bad cricket is saddening".

After topping the group, pre-tournament favourites India were stunned by New Zealand in a sensational semi-final at Old Trafford. "They hit ideal line and length and forced us to make errors".

Ferguson (1-43) bowled Bhuvneshwar Kumar later in the over and Neesham (1-49) finished the job three balls into the last as Yuzvendra Chahal edged behind, leaving India to reflect on a surprise exit and New Zealand looking forward to the chance to go one better than 2015 as they bid to lift the World Cup trophy at Lord's on Sunday.

"It was an outstanding spell from Santner on a surface that, you know, no doubt was offering to the slower bowlers - and we saw that in our innings as well the amount of spin that the Indian spinners got and he (Santner) is a world-class bowler, so we expected he would operate well", Williamson said. "But the way they bowled in that first half an hour was the difference in the game", he said.

Insisting India weren't fazed by having to return to Old Trafford to finish the match on the reserve day, Kohli added: "It was fine having to come back today".

"So contributions can come in so many different ways and I think we have seen on the fielding charts he has been right up there and for him to do that and pull off what was a significant turning point in the match was special", Williamson said. Then it was a professional effort with the ball this morning and we had the momentum. The New Zealand bowlers deserve credit for bowling probing lines and continuously asking questions of the Indian batsmen.

On the reserve day on Wednesday, New Zealand added 28 more runs to their overnight score to finish at 239 for eight, a total which India found hard to chase following a top-order collapse under overcast conditions.

"We are sad but not devastated". Guptill had one stump to aim at as he tore in from the deep, he found his mark and the replays confirmed Dhoni was centimetres short of his ground. "Rishabh Pant is good but at number five we need to find someone as we've tried too many people there".

But as one of the most charismatic and competitive cricketers, Kohli still left an imprint on this tournament.
