England have set up a Cricket World Cup icc cricket semi final live streaming showdown with New Zealand — and everyone will be able to tune in to watch the action for free on Sunday. Advertisement The host nation obliterated Australia in an eight-wicket victory with 20 overs to spare in the semi-final clash on Thursday.
What an extraordinary slow-burn semi that turned out to be. And thank goodness we got a full over contest instead of trying to shoehorn all that drama into a rain-truncated game. Huge congratulations to New Zealand, and don't forget, we're doing it all over again tomorrow, when England and Australia take the stage at Edgbaston in another humdinger of a match-up.
They topped the table in in the same format but were knocked out by a fourth placed team. For the next world cup, which is in the same format, ICC should have qualifiers and eliminator instead of just semi finals.
He also played two amazing innings in World T20 final and World T20 semifinal. The player is still a great.
The team selection cost us. Not sure how a simple game can impact you so much. Feels worse than a break-up. Love all the way to Team India.
You guys were fabulous. However, I am happy that we went down fighting. Not taking anything at all from NZ, but I feel this was India's game to lose and they crumbled under pressure.
Pant, DK, Hardik could have put on a better show. Nevertheless, this will be an important lesson for Kohli's era after Dhoni. Thanks you Team India.
We are all very proud of you. For the second time in four years, New Zealand have muscled their way through to the World Cup final, and just as they did in the semi-final in Auckland , they have had to hold their composure in arguably the match of the tournament.
And for Grant Elliott then, read Jimmy Neesham now Given the context of the moment, it was arguably the catch of the tournament. In contrast, Kohli - for all his achievements, crumbled under the pressure.
Guess greatness isn't decided by statistics after all.
Crunch games, the truly great players would step up! But there's no doubt they were found wanting as a collective in the crunch moment. Ravi Jadeja, aside, of course. He was a sensation in the field this morning as well, don't forget! You made us proud keep it heads high" Quite right too.
Finished top of the group stage, swept all before them until the England game, and even then, they took it deep. It wasn't to be, but knock-out cricket can be cruel!
Sankesh Jain: " Andrew: I sorta disagree. Kohli doesn't remind us of any one innings in ICC tournaments that he has stepped up when the team needed him. It is disappointing for an Indian cricket fan like me to see this heart breaking loss. He started out with the ball and just tried to create pressure.
We just had to ask a lot of questions against the best batting line-up. I thought we managed to scrap it out. We had the belief - we knew we had to bowl well. Obviously, they are world-class batsmen - Hardik, Dhoni and Jadeja - we knew to win the game we had to get them out.
It's very special and thanks to the New Zealand supporters out there. Kohli: Yes, it was. The first half we were spot on. We got what we needed in the field. We knew we had a good day yesterday, we felt like we had the moment, but the credit has to go to NZ bowlers.
The swing and help they got from the surface - the skill from them was on display. Jaddu had an outstanding couple of games. He went with so much clarity, MS had a good partnership with him.
It was a game of margins and MS was run-out.
Difficult to take it - but New Zealand deserve it. Our shot selection could have been better, but we played a good standard of cricket throughout.
New Zealand were braver in crunch situations and they deserve it. Williamson: Yeah, it's a different playing - the way he had to skin it through the round-robin.
Great semi-final over two days and very pleased to be on the right side of it.
It was really tough and we had to assess the conditions. Both teams thought it would be high-scoring, we thought we could get and put India under pressure. Lot of contributions from everyone. A lot of it was on the conditions and the rain around.
We just wanted to put the ball in the good areas and put pressure on India. We just wanted some early wickets and it was great start for the bowlers.
We needed to stay in the game for long periods. The way Jadeja and Dhoni were hitting the ball, they were likely to win, but our fielders were then outstanding.
A lot of it is to look at what it is. Some of those games are tough and conditions vary throughout the match.
