ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: India vs New Zealand 1st Semi-Final – Virat Kohli got his 50th ODI century, beating Sachin Tendulkar’s record, while Shami was the first bowler to record three five-wicket hauls in a single edition of the 50-over World Cup, helping India reach the final. Beyond Stuart Binny’s 6 for 4, Shami’s 7 for 57 is also the best-ever ODI stats for an Indian bowler.
Surrounding Kohli’s heroics (117 off 113) was some amazing batting from everyone. In the first PowerPlay, Rohit Sharma misled Mitchell Santner and the New Zealand quicks with his aggressive style.With his third century of the current World Cup, Kohli helped India reach 397 for 4 in the Mumbai knockout game.

New Zealand Innings

Following the PowerPlay, Daryl Mitchell and Kane Williamson contributed 41 runs in the following five overs, providing a boost to New Zealand’s progress. India had a spell of carelessness on the field, as evidenced by the run-out opportunity they lost when Rahul removed the bails with his glove. The two managed to keep the score at just over six runs per over, which was still not enough, despite their strong negotiating against India’s two spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja.


Then, with Mitchell caught in the deep to complete his fifer, Shami returned to ring the death knell for New Zealand.With this, Shami made history as the first bowler to take three wickets in a single World Cup edition. In the 2003 World Cup, he broke Ashish Nehra’s record of 6 for 23 against England by adding two more wickets to his total, making it the highest bowling numbers in a World Cup knockout match ever.
