They had to claw their way into Sunday's World Cup final.

While many Indian expats in Oman were likely to support India, should they have reached the final, Ramanuj Venkatesh has been a life-long supporter of New Zealand.

"We've played outstanding cricket throughout this tournament". It was just unfortunate that the game went into the second day.

"You finish No. 1 in the table and then a spell of bad cricket and then you are out of the tournament completely".

New Zealand made 239 for eight on a tricky pitch, Ross Taylor top-scoring with 74 and Williamson contributing 67 as the two senior batsmen showed their class again. "They hit ideal line and length and forced us to make errors".

Maity, who hails from Hooghly district, was watching the IND vs NZ Semi-Final match on his phone when the incident took place.

It was hardly the type of form that indicated a stunning victory over the top-ranked qualifier was on the cards, but the Black Caps' slide - from being unbeaten in their first six group games, to losing their last three - ultimately taught them a lesson that proved immensely valuable. "And had Dhoni dived, who knows, he wouldn't have got run-out and would have taken India across the finishing line", he added.

He obtained it from one of the singer's sons, Julio Iglesias Junior, when he picked up a bottle of water after surfing in Miami. Tests are said to have shown that Sánchez and Julio Iglesias Jr were brothers.

"But I feel that we can't be all the time relying on Rohit to give a good start or Virat to come and make sure that a solid foundation is built", he said.

"Then it was a professional effort with the ball this morning and we had the momentum". Congratulations to New Zealand team.

New Zealand paceman Matt Henry was the wrecker-in-chief as he sent the in-form Sharma trudging back to the pavilion in his very first over.

Jadeja and veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni, renowned as one of the game's great finishers, rekindled the hopes of the cricket-crazy nation with a fighting seventh-wicket century partnership but it wasn't enough as India, cahsing 240 to win, fell 18 runs short.

"We are sad, but we are not, you know, devastated because of the kind of cricket that we played in this tournament".

Dad Mohammed Al Balushi, a senior board member of the Oman Cricket Association, was disappointed by India's performance, and said that the Indian team was overconfident going into the game. In the one-day game you had five catching fielders.
