India defeated New Zealand by 70 runs to go to the Cricket World Cup final, led by Mohammed Shami’s seven wicket haul.
Mohammed Shami’s seven wicket haul helps India win the first semi-final and make it to the Cricket World Cup final for the first time in twelve years. The Indians thrash New Zealand by 70 runs. An ICC trophy would end a 12-year skid for the Rohit Sharma-led team with only one victory. India defeated New Zealand for 327, despite their total of 397, thanks to a 7/57 effort from Shami. Previous to that, Rohit Sharma chose to bat first, and Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer struck hundreds to lead India to 397/4. During his innings, Virat Kohli scored 49 ODI tonnes, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record.
