The Black Caps faced a disappointing exit in the ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final against India as they fell short by 71 runs in a challenging chase. Opting to bat first, India set a formidable target of 398 runs, propelled by centuries from Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. Despite a valiant effort from Daryl Mitchell, who scored a brilliant 134, the Black Caps couldn’t overhaul the target, succumbing to Mohammed Shami’s exceptional bowling performance. The loss raised questions about the last-minute pitch change, and while the defeat was not as heart-wrenching as previous exits, it marked another deep run in a World Cup without clinching the trophy.
