Sanjay Manjrekar blocks Michael Vaughan after Twitter spat

Manchester make or break for Black Caps New Zealand opt to bat against India in WC semi-final

"I have heard enough of your verbal diarrhea Sanjay Manjrekar".

Rohit Sharma is in the form of his life after hitting a record five centuries in a single edition of the World Cup to lead the tournament's batting charts with 647 runs.

If New Zealand get off to a great start, with bat or ball, the streak will soon be forgotten. "I know they haven't done it yet", he added.

New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Henry Nicholls, Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Jimmy Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Trent Boult.

India topped the group stage with seven wins from nine matches, while New Zealand limped into the last four after three successive defeats.

But Vettori, who played the last of his 295 ODIs against Australia in the 2015 final, insists that poor run will count for nothing if Kane Williamson's side get off to a flier against the Indians.

His 4-30 against West Indies on June 22 at Old Trafford was one of the best spells of fast bowling in this edition of the World Cup, while he also claimed a hat-trick against Australia.

Martin added that the new series would be a true ensemble, not focused on one lead but a diverse group of fascinating characters. Naomi Watts , Miranda Richardson , Naromi Ackie and Denise Gough are among the ensemble cast announced by HBO.

They also have the world's best ODI bowler and batsman - Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli - in their ranks, as well as a slew of other notable contributors.

In response, Bruce Edgar accrued a unbeaten knock of 84 in an eight-wicket win, although it took the Black Caps 57 overs to get over the line as India were again sent packing at the group stages while the Kiwis advanced once more to the final four.

But it is all very well saying that, the hard part is actually going out and doing it. The Proteas batted like they didn't in the entire tournament and put an impressive score of 325/6 on the board in their innings.

That is a real credit to them as a batting unit because plenty of other teams go out there and just go hard regardless of the conditions.

They now have the additional incentive of proving to Tendulkar that his prediction of an India appearance in the final was premature.

After Jadeja found a spot in the playing XI in India's semi-final match against New Zealand on Tuesday, Vaughan did not miss the opportunity and posted a series of tweets mentioning "bits and pieces".
