Kane Williamson, captain of New Zealand, praised India for their outstanding performance in the World Cup semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium. He said India is the best team in the world and is playing exceptional cricket. Despite a valiant effort from Daryl Mitchell, New Zealand fell short by 70 runs, with Mohammed Shami taking seven wickets for India.
“India are playing seriously good cricket, they’re a class side at the top of their game,” Williamson told reporters. “The way they’ve played throughout this tournament has been incredible.” New Zealand was unable to create opportunities to restrict India, who scored 397 for four after winning the toss and batting first.
Williamson expressed pride in his team’s overall performance in the tournament, despite the loss. He also praised Daryl Mitchell for his outstanding efforts throughout the tournament and in the semi-final match.
