India showcased dominance, securing a spot in the World Cup 2023 final by defeating New Zealand with an impressive 70-run victory, highlighted by Mohammed Shami’s exceptional seven-wicket haul.
India’s commanding performance secured their spot in the ICC men’s ODI World Cup final after a dominant 70-run victory over New Zealand on November 15th. Batting first, India set a formidable total of 397/4 in 50 overs, with Virat Kohli’s sensational century marking his 50th ODI ton, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record. Kohli’s stellar innings was supported by Shreyas Iyer’s blazing 105 off 70 balls.
Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill provided an explosive start, contributing 71 runs in 8.2 overs. However, Rohit departed for a brisk 47, while Gill retired hurt at 79 due to cramps, returning to add one more run in the final over.
In the second innings, Mohammed Shami exhibited sheer brilliance, claiming seven crucial wickets in the match. His remarkable performance began instantly, securing an early breakthrough in his first delivery and dismissing Rachin Ravindra in the following over. Though he faltered by dropping Williamson on 52, Shami swiftly made amends by dismissing him for 69.
Shami further dismantled Tom Latham for a duck, paving the way for India’s resurgence. Mitchell, having already notched a century, steadied the innings with Glenn Phillips until Jasprit Bumrah removed Phillips. Kuldeep Yadav then dismissed Mark Chapman. Shami’s prowess shone brightly as he clinched Mitchell’s wicket for 134 in the 46th over, sealing the fate of New Zealand with two more dismissals.
