After losing the semi-final with an unexpected 18-run defeat against New Zealand, Indian captain Virat Kohli admitted that India had paid the price for "45 minutes of bad cricket". The team needed just 240 to get to the final but India lost badly in their run chase. Due to the fast bowling of Matt Henri and Trent Boult, India lost 3 wickets in the first three overs and then got reduced to 24-4 and 92-6. However, Ravindra Jadeja drew attention from his inspirational batting and scored 77 runs in 59 balls, making him the second highest run-getter in the world cup No. 8.

It's sad to be out on 45 minutes of poor cricket." He said that he was confident when the team had limited the black hat to 239-8 on Tuesday, which is viewable on any surface.
He praised the NZ bowlers and said, "The credit of the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving around it, it was an outstanding skill level on the display and they have a very difficult life for our batsmen. made." Matt Henry sent Rohit Sharma back in his first over and Trent Boult looked at Kohli's back with a large amount of inswinger, which resulted in LBW.

Later, the 116-run partnership between Jadeja and MS Dhoni could not be shown to India, as soon as Jadeja went, there was a flurry of wickets. The disappointing semi-final made India's fans ruined and unhappy. "Today, we were not good enough. The nature of the tournament is a bad day at this level and you are out of this tournament."
