Cricket fans in Oman respond to New Zealand win over India

With the bat, Jadeja was at his supreme best as his 59-ball 77 took India within touching distance of winning the contest.

New Zealand will resume on 211-5 with 3.5 overs left against India at Old Trafford, where persistent rain led to a premature end to play on Tuesday and the need to use a reserve day set aside by organizers.

New Zealand paceman Matt Henry was the wrecker-in-chief as he sent the in-form Sharma trudging back to the pavilion in his very first over.

On Wednesday, India lost to New Zealand by 18 runs at the Old Trafford to bow out of the competition. "If you look at the first three wickets and ask if it was bad batting or good bowling from New Zealand, I was say it was fantastic bowling by New Zealand", Srikkanth added.

They had to claw their way into Sunday's World Cup final. Either way, I am so happy that New Zealand have come to the final and if they face Australia, it means there will be the traditional trans-Tasman rivalry, so that will be an exciting game.

Earlier, reacting to Manjrekar's comment, Jadeja too tweeted back: "Still I have played twice the number of matches you have played and I'm still playing". "If there is a low total, we knew there's probably only one or two sides in world cricket that will put seven fielders in the ring and one was going to be New Zealand".

Spinner Mitchell Santner bowled dot ball after dot ball. "I wish them all the best", he said.

He admitted afterwards that he had been unable to control his emotions in the moment, but owned up to failing when it mattered most for his team.

Cricket-mad Indians tried on Thursday to come to terms with their shock World Cup exit, with the Times of India telling readers "The Sun will still rise tomorrow" and Ravindra Jadeja emerging as a new national hero. "Everyone gets disappointed when they get out so it was a natural reaction".

"Hard luck Virat. Just wasn't our day today".

They had been unsure about the No4 slot before the tournament even began and the problems were only compounded in the World Cup when they couldn't make up their minds over Kedar Jadhav or Dinesh Karthik for the other middle-order slot.
