Mohammed Shami claimed a record seven wickets – most by an Indian bowler in a World Cup match – to help India beat New Zealand by 70 runs in the World Cup semifinal.
In the World Cup 2023 Semi-Final, Mohammed Shami's stellar seven-wicket haul was instrumental, while Virat Kohli's commanding leadership and impactful batting anchored India's chase, defining their remarkable journey to the final.
Rohit Sharma's (47 off 29 balls) pyrotechnics, tons by Kohli (117 off 113) and Iyer (105 off 70), and a fluent 66-ball 80 by Shubman Gill, who retired hurt due to cramps.
New Zealand were stopped at 327 in 48.5 overs as Mohammed Shami finished with incredible figures of 7/57.
After Gill was forced to go back, Kohli and Iyer carried on the good work to set New Zealand an improbable target. Gill, though, came back and remained not out on 80 off 66 balls.
During the course of his innings, Kohli also became the first batter in the history of the game to score 50 ODI centuries, going past his idol Sachin Tendulkar.
Grateful for your time!
