Twitter reacts on New Zealand’s convincing win over India and qualifying for the final contest of World Cup 2019.
New Zealand beat India by 18 runs after posting 240 runs on the scoreboard. The black caps resumed at 211-5 as the match was deferred to next day after being called off due to rain in Manchester.
Martin Guptill caught the major attention in the last part of the match as he gets Dhoni run-out with a splendid direct throw. It was the turning point of the match as the World’s best finisher was looking in perfect form.

On the other hand, former cricketers also congratulated New Zealand for becoming the first team to qualify for the final of WC 19.
New Zealand’s ex-cricketer Grant Elliot, who struck a match-winning six in the semi-final against South Africa back in World Cup 2015, wished the Black Caps to win the coveted trophy this time around.
What a game! #backtheblackcaps
Finals time! Let’s go one better than 2015.

Cricketer-turned-commentator Dany Morrison showed his excitement on Twitter while congratulating his team for the achievement.
Pakistan’s former speedster Shoaib Akhtar said that India’s batting was not up to the mark to reach to the finals.
India did not bat well enough to reach the final. A resilient effort by Jadeja & Dhoni. They almost brought India back into the game.
So a big upset, New Zealand goes through to final, India knocked out. #INDvsNZ #CWC19 #semifinal
