Virat Kohli weighs in on the Ravindra Jadeja

During the game, an umpiring error got unnoticed as the Twitter users have pointed out that the ball on which Dhoni lost his wicket was actually a no-ball as more than five players were outside the circle at that time. The Indian batting is so strong that before the semifinal, their middle order wasn't under this kind of pressure at any point in this World Cup. Although India started off really well by restricting the Kiwis within 239, their efforts went in vain as they failed to register a win.

History is not exactly on England's side, though, with their last Cricket World Cup win against Australia coming back in 1992 when Ian Botham stole the show, taking 4-31 with the ball and contributing 53 with the bat. Chasing a 240-run target, Virat Kohli and Co suffered a big collapse at the start as they lost their first 3 wickets for just 5 runs. So it's not easy under pressure.

Williamson said when Dhoni, who scored 50 off 72 balls, was there, he knew the match could have gone either way in those final overs.

Interestingly, "under scanner" Dhoni is fourth on the list of run-getters for India in this tournament with 223 runs. It was then the turn of spinner Mitchell Santner to tie down the middle order in a spell of 2-6 off seven overs, during which he dismissed Risbabh Pant and Hardik Pandya each for 32.

He was all praise for Ravindra Jadeja, who made batting on a hard pitch look easy. Though experienced all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja then held the helms and helped his team to cross at least 200-mark by smashing four jaw-dropping sixes.

Williamson is confident despite an 86-run defeat by Australia - the team that beat New Zealand in the final four years ago - and a 119-run loss to England in the initial 10-team group stage. On the eve of the semifinal, Kohli said: "I'm sure everyone has special things to say about Dhoni". Any player would know how long he would be able to play worldwide cricket. "We have seen Dhoni finish games from those similar positions on a number of occasions", Williamson said after the match. When Virat Kohli was asked about the same in the press conference on Wednesday, he cleared that Dhoni has told anything to him about his future plans. His World Cup performance wasn't that good, to be honest.
