VIRAT KOHLI: The first half, we were very, very good. We got what we needed at that point. We thought we had restricted New Zealand to a chaseable score but the way they come out with the ball was what made the difference. I think it was the skill level on display (from NZ bowlers) was there for all to see. Jadeja had a really good couple of games and it's his performances that are a huge positive. New Zealand deserve it, they put us under more pressure. At times, I think our shot-selection could have been better. Really proud of the way we competed throughout the tournament. As I said, come the knockouts, New Zealand were braver than us and deserve to win. Thanks to all the fans, thanks for coming out in huge numbers.
MATT HENRY: In the break, we talked about making sure we do the best we can. Play the we want to play. We started well with the ball and created a lot of pressure. We had to ask a lot of questions against that world-class batting line-up. We knew we had to create pressure against that batting line-up but we also knew that this was a difficult wicket to bat on and it was holding up a little bit. We brought ourselves on and if we could create a few early chances, anything could happen. Hardik and Dhoni, the way they batted with Jadeja to come in, we know they are world-class finishers. We needed to finish off well and get them out before it went too deep. Very special to earn ourselves a Lord's final, thanks to all the New Zealand supporters out there. We are looking forward to the final on Sunday.

Since the 2015 WC, India have only failed to chase one target smaller than the 240 they’ve just failed chasing: 190 v WI in Antigua, in that match MS Dhoni scored 54 off 114 balls. The top three failed - but MS Dhoni is no longer good enough to make up for their failings. #CWC19— The CricViz Analyst (@cricvizanalyst) July 10, 2019
OUT: Boult starts the 48th over. Dhoni gets one from the middle of the bat but Santner fields well in the deep. This match is getting really close. But India are not able to get in a boundary. And Boult has Jadeja. He skies the ball and Williamson takes a great catch under-pressure. Jadeja departs for 77 from 59. India are 208/7.
200: 200 comes up for India in Matt Henry over. The target is still some distance away. India need to keep up the good work now. India manage to get four singles in five balls. India need much more than that at the moment. Make that five runs. India are 203/6 in 47 overs. They need 37 from 18 balls.
India's poor temperamant has been shocking to watch.
Pandya trying to break the shackles, holes out and India are in the absolute doldrums now. Superbly as New Zealand have bowled, this has been a shockingly pusillanimous batting performance— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) July 10, 2019
