While others poked fun at the team's wicket keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni who was run out in the match in the semi-final drawing comparisons to Indian fighter jets shot down by the Pakistan Air Force in the Pakistani territory in February by saying, "Two lines India crossed that they will never forget". Ball-tracking showed it was just clipping the top of the bails, umpire's call, and that was enough to send an enraged Kohli back to the pavilion for just one - taking his record in World Cup semi-finals to 11 runs in three innings.

Henry finished with superb figures of three for 37 from his maximum 10 overs and Boult two for 42.

The 40-year-old Tendulkar, who is now serving as a television pundit for Star Sports the official broadcaster of the World Cup in India, said in an interview with India Today: "I have said in a number of interviews that Kane Williamson as captain has a smart, thinking brain and he is always in control".

"Chasing 240, we were very comfortable". We were confident despite the start we got.

Speaking about the game, Williamson (67) and Ross Taylor (74) led the charge for New Zealand as the won the toss and made a decision to bat first.

India were in dire straits in their chase when all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja came in at 92 for six.

Dhoni went in the next over and India ran out of deliveries to make a shock exit from the tournament.

Right along the coast south of Louisiana, water temperatures are now approaching 32ºC - more than ample fuel for a healthy storm. The unnamed system is spinning in the same general area where Hurricane Michael gained strength last October.

Williamson eventually held the catch that ended Jadeja´s counter-attack following a skyer off left-arm quick Boult.

The untimely run-out of Dhoni (50 off 72 balls) in the 49th over was the final nail in the coffin.

Asked what he was thinking when he caught Jadeja, the smiling captain answered: "Someone goes ´catch it´ and it´s sort of.it´s above me so it must be mine".

The final will be played at 9.30pm Sunday at Lords. The required run rate still seemed out of reach as it crossed 12 per over. In three previous semi-finals, Virat Kohli scored nine runs in 2011 World Cup while in the 2015 World Cup semi-final, he scored just one run.

Twitterati also mercilessly troll Indian team on defeat at the hands of New Zealand.

"Obviously, the passion for the game in India is unrivalled and we are all fortunate to play this sport and have a country like India be right behind it".

"But hopefully we can adopt 1.5 billion supporters and they´ll be supporting us, what do you reckon?"
