India’s performance in the semi-final of the World Cup against New Zealand was impressive and dominant, as they beat the Kiwis by 70 runs and secured their spot in the final. India displayed their strength and depth in all three departments: batting, bowling, and fielding.
India’s batting was explosive and consistent, as they posted a mammoth total of 397 for 4 in 50 overs. The openers, Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill, gave India a flying start with a 97-run stand in 10 overs. Rohit scored 47 off 29 balls, while Gill made 80 off 66 balls. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer then added 188 runs for the third wicket, both scoring brilliant centuries. Kohli made 117 off 113 balls, while Iyer smashed 105 off 70 balls. KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav provided the finishing touches, scoring 39 and 1 respectively. India’s batting was ruthless and relentless, as they hit 28 fours and 24 sixes in their innings. They also showed good running between the wickets and smart rotation of strike. India’s batting was a nightmare for the New Zealand bowlers, who conceded 100 runs in the last five overs.
India’s bowling was disciplined and destructive, as they bowled out New Zealand for 327 in 48.5 overs. Mohammed Shami was the star of the show, as he took 7 wickets for 57 runs in 9.5 overs. He was named the player of the match for his outstanding performance. Shami was well supported by the other bowlers, especially Jasprit Bumrah, who took 1 for 64 in 10 overs, and Kuldeep Yadav, who took 1 for 56 in 10 overs. India’s bowling was accurate and aggressive, as they took regular wickets and never allowed New Zealand to build a big partnership. They also varied their pace and length, and used the yorkers and slower balls effectively. India’s bowling was too good for the New Zealand batsmen, who could not cope with the pressure and the target.
India’s fielding was sharp and energetic, as they saved runs and took catches. India’s fielding was a contrast to New Zealand’s, who dropped catches and missed run-outs. India’s fielding was a reflection of their confidence and commitment, as they showed no signs of complacency or fatigue.

India’s performance was a statement of their intent and ambition, as they proved that they are the best team in the tournament and the favorites to win the title.
