New Zealand stun India to win thrilling Cricket World Cup semi-final – as it happened


Islamabad: (Barwaqt News) The book will always say that New Zealand beat India by 18 runs in the first semi-final of the 2019 World Cup. But you’d need thousands and thousands of words to tell the full story of a marvellous, nuanced match. It placed unreasonable demands on the brain, gut, heart, nerves, eyes and soul – and that’s just for the neutral supporters.
At the end of it all, New Zealand are in the World Cup final again. It’s often said that you need to lose one to win one, and New Zealand will hope that’s the case. One thing’s for sure: anyone who thinks, consciously or otherwise, that tomorrow’s match between Australia and England is a de facto final needs to give their head a wobble.
