Join us on Mar 26th for the AUS-IND 2nd semis, till than it Good Bye from all of us.
BB McCullum: It's pretty amazing. They gave us a tough fight. Really proud the boys. That obviously set it up nicely for us, two set batsmen were at the crease. What a great innings from Elliott. He's played a match-winning innings in the semi-final and the partnership he had with Corey was amazing.

AB de Villiers: Amazing game of cricket, this is probably the most electric crowd I've ever heard in my life. I couldn't anything more from my boys. It's hurting that we are going out. That's probably the worst thing of all. The passion did make a big difference, I hope the people back home will be proud of us. I felt we had a good fielding as a team in the tournament. We had very good individual performances as well. To the teams in the final, all the best.
GD Elliott is the Man of th Match for his fabulous Innings.
The New Zealand players come down to shake hands with their opponents. AB de Villiers too is crying.
 New Zealand won by 4 wickets and they have qualified for a World Cup final for the first time.
