So, that's all from us here at Sportskeeda for today. Do join us tomorrow as Australia clash swords with England at Edgbaston. 

Till then, this is Shashwat Kumar signing off! Goodbye!
Williamson: "Quite different to four years ago but we are very pleased to win another tight semi-final encounter. We had to assess the conditions quickly and both sides initially thought it would be a high-scoring wicket. The guys were very clinical with the bat to ensure we got to 239. A lot of our half-time discussion was to make the best use of conditions. We wanted to put the ball in good areas and get it to seam or swing. It was really nice to get some early wickets. We knew it would slow down later and then we could apply the squeeze. They showed they are a world-class unit with the way they nearly got over the line. Some of the previous games were tough and the conditions were tricky. While we did not play our best cricket there were also a few other factors to keep in mind. So, we were not too disheartened. We know in these tournaments, anything could happen. It's a game of small margins and we eventually got the job done."
Kohli: "We were very good in the first half. We got everything we required in the field. We restricted them to a chase-able total on any wicket. We were proud of our effort yesterday and today with the ball. Credit needs to be given to New Zealand for the way they bowled. The way Jadeja played today was good. He went out with such clarity and changed the game. It's difficult to accept when just 45 minutes of bad cricket puts you out of the tournament. But New Zealand deserved it for the way they applied pressure. We played a good standard of cricket throughout and New Zealand showed more composure than us and were braver in the crucial moments. Thanks to all the fans for coming out in huge numbers."
Matt Henry is the Player of the Match!
Henry: 
"We talked about making sure that we did the best we can. We started off well with the ball and created oressure. India have got a world-class batting line up but the wicket wasn't easy. The key was to build up the pressure. If you create pressure, anything can happen. Dhoni, Jadeja and Pandya are very dangerous and we wanted to get them out. It feels very special to play the final. I want to thank the New Zealand supporters who have been with us throughout. It (the final) is a special occasion and we are looking forward to it."
India fall 18 runs short! 
The Indians did a superb job with the ball yesterday and today, thereby restricting New Zealand to 239. Taylor starred for the Kiwis with a well-compiled 74 and that got the Black Caps a defendable total. 

The Black Caps started off like a storm in the second innings and got through India's famed top order in a jiffy. Though Pant and Pandya re-builded a touch, it was only during the Jadeja-Dhoni partnership that India really had hope. However, once that stand was broken, the Indians folded and drifted further and further away from the target. In the end, the fell 18 runs short, meaning that their quest for the World Cup will have to wait another 4 four years. 

As for New Zealand, they produced one of the best bowling performances of the tournament to set up a date with either Australia or England at Lord's. A remarkable display by the Kiwis, who dug deep into their resources and pulled a stunning rabbit out of the hat.
Neesham gets Chahal and sends New Zealand to the final!
Neesham bangs one in short and Chahal gives it an almighty heave. Unfortunately, he only gets a faint tickle and Latham does the rest. But wait, Chahal has gone for the DRS. Replays show a slight spike and that's that! New Zealand make their second consecutive World Cup final. And India, the favourites, are taking the first flight back from Manchester. O! How this game of cricket can change in a trice!
49.3 OUT! Caught. Jimmy Neesham to Yuzvendra Chahal. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Latham.
49.2 Jimmy Neesham to Yuzvendra Chahal. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Latham.
Chahal starts the last over with a four!
Neesham bowls the worst delivery of today and strays way down the leg-side. Chahal just helps it on its way and collects a boundary. 
49.1 FOUR! Jimmy Neesham to Yuzvendra Chahal. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, past fine leg for 4 runs.
Ferguson castles Bhuvneshwar!
Ferguson completely deceives Bhuvneshwar with the slower delivery and castles him. The batsman is too early into his shot and the ball rattles the off-stump. New Zealand are on their way to Lord's. 
Over 49 IND: 217/9(RR 4.43) Bowler: L Ferguson Summary: 6 . 1W . 1 W |
48.6 OUT! Bowled. Lockie Ferguson to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to.
48.5 Lockie Ferguson to Yuzvendra Chahal. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Guptill.
48.4 Lockie Ferguson to Yuzvendra Chahal. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, mis-timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Williamson.
And Dhoni is run out! 
Dhoni tries to complete a second run off Martin Guptill's throw and the Kiwi hits the stumps from deep square leg. Wow! What a way to end India's World Cup campaign! Probably the last time MS walks back in World Cup cricket. 
48.3 OUT! Run Out. Lockie Ferguson to MS Dhoni. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward square leg for 1 run, direct hit by Guptill.
48.2 Lockie Ferguson to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Ferguson.
Boom! MS with a six!
Ferguson bangs one in short and wide. Dhoni jumps and mauls the ball over point for six. That was just power. Raw power. 
48.1 SIX! Lockie Ferguson to MS Dhoni. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air under control over deep point for 6 runs.
India have lost their way in the past two overs and have scored only 11 runs. That led to Jadeja's wicket and the onus is solely on Dhoni to get India home from here. However, it is an extremely herculean task. 
Over 48 IND: 209/7(RR 4.35) Bowler: T Boult Summary: 2 1 1 1 W 1 |
47.6 Trent Boult to MS Dhoni. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run.
Jadeja departs!
Jadeja goes for the big hit over long-on and he perishes in doing so. He slices his shot and Williamson comes around from cover to complete the catch. A scintillating innings comes to an end. Did MS have a part to play in that dismissal?
47.5 OUT! Caught. Trent Boult to Ravindra Jadeja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Williamson.
47.4 Trent Boult to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to square leg for 1 run.
47.3 Trent Boult to Ravindra Jadeja. In-swinging yorker, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Neesham.
47.2 Trent Boult to MS Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Williamson.
47.1 Trent Boult to MS Dhoni. Off cutter back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Santner.
The innings today has been stamped with an MSD template. However, who is the bowler he will go after?
