‘Miracle in Manchester’, New Zealand in shock at win over India

Adjust Comment Print

New Zealand will resume on 211-5 with 3.5 overs left against India at Old Trafford, where persistent rain led to a premature end to play on Tuesday and the need to use a reserve day set aside by organizers.

The tickets cannot be sold but can be donated so they benefit local cricket communities free of charge.

Earlier, reacting to Manjrekar's comment, Jadeja too tweeted back: "Still I have played twice the number of matches you have played and I'm still playing".

The match will be starting soon and television screens around the globe will start coming on shortly. The team's over-dependence on Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to give them kick start to their innings could be one of the reasons why the middle order couldn't perform under pressure.

Virat Kohli admitted India had paid the price for "45 minutes of bad cricket" as the heart-broken skipper surveyed the wreckage of his side's stunning World Cup exit.

"As a New Zealand fan you would be hopeful of them doing it again in the final", Vettori added. "So they know how to put pressure because they play very consistent cricket".

Gold slips as dollar strengthens ahead of Powell's testimony
As for other precious metals, silver for September delivery was up 4.9 cents, or 0.33 percent to close at 15.05 dollars per ounce. Friday's payrolls report for June shifted the debate from how much to cut interest rates this month to whether to move at all.

There has also been plenty of support on social media from the fans urging MS Dhoni to not retire.

The No4 batting slot has been a revolving door with various batsmen being tried out in the position over the last couple of years but none of them were able to convince completely. He also predicted the victor of the CWC 2019 and said that New Zealand will take away the title.

"Dhoni should have come ahead of (Hardyk) Pandya". The talent is there for everyone to see and the character is there, but, as I said, yes, a few shots, not just Rishabh, but that happens in sport. Kane Williamson's side produced an 18-run victory over India to advance to Sunday's final at Lord's against either Australia or hosts England.

Exhausted but energised New Zealand fans will have to wait until Sunday to see whether they can.

"I have to apologize to him (Jadeja), he was looking for me but I wasn't there".

"The ball spun quite sharply and we thought if we got 240-250, we'd be right there in the game to put India under pressure. So there are many things that we can take back as positives".
