    Best ODI bowling figures: Shami’s 7/57 in India vs New Zealand World Cup 2023 semifinal takes him to no. 14 in all-time list

    Here is a look at the best-bowling figures in ODIs.

  • November 15, 2023 22:38
    India wins by 70 runs

    A day of records for Indian cricket. First it was Virat Kohli, who scored a record-breaking 50th ODI hundred. The rest of the bating unit, starting with Rohit up top and Shreyas in the death, fired in unison as India posted a mammoth 397.

    New Zealand kept the fight going for as long they could. Darryl Mitchell scored another chanceless hundred, his second against India in the tournament. Williamson and Phillips played handy knocks. But once Shami got into his groove, there was no stopping India. The right-arm pacer secured a seven-wicket haul, a first-ever by an Indian, to help India to a 70-run win.

    Now, the final awaits!!

  • November 15, 2023 22:26
    Seven for Shami!

    Shami gets an outside edge from Southee. KL Rahul takes a good, low catch. That is Shami’s sixth wicket. The second Indian to take a six-wicket haul in ODI World Cups.

    Tim Southee c †Rahul b Mohammed Shami 9 (10b 1x4 0x6)

    Scratch that! He is the first Indian to take a seven-wicket haul in ODI World Cups.

  • November 15, 2023 22:11
    Shami gets his fifer!

    Shami with an off-cutter to beat Mitchell to start the over. The next one is a fuller one on the leg side. Mitchell tries to lob it to the leg side. But all he can do is find Jadeja in the deep. No pressure. No mistake. Catch taken. Game Done!

    Bumrah strikes!

    Bumrah with the 43rd. Mitchell digs it out to long off and sets off for a single. A direct hit from Jadeja allows New Zealand to sneak in another run. Almost a perfect yorker from Bumrah, but Phillips squeezes it just past the keeper for a four.

    But Bumrah gets his man, eventually. Slow ball from him and Phillips fails to read it. Edged and it goes waaay high. Thankfully for India, it is Jadeja who circles underneath it. Great catch under pressure.

  • November 15, 2023 21:15
    NZ 231/4 in 36 overs

    Jadeja with his last over. Mitchell tries to take him on with a sweep shot. Hits him on the pads. Loud appeals. No response from the umpire. Jadeja suggests to not take a review as he felt there was an edge. Turns out he was right.

    Mitchell is down with cramps and needs some medical attention. He is back on his feet soon. A little too wide from Jadeja and Phillips cuts it in front of point for a four.

  • November 15, 2023 21:08
    NZ 224/4 in 35 overs

    Shami continues to steam in. Mitchell defends the first ball with a dead straight bat. A couple of singles follow. Shami goes for a slower one. Mitchell swings across the line. Misses it completely as the ball bounces narrowly above the stumps. The Wankhede crowd has their hands on their heads.

  • November 15, 2023 21:02
    NZ 221/4 in 34 overs

    Jadeja with his ninth over. Slip in place now. Five dot balls on the trot against new batter Glenn Phillips. The crowd loving the pressure India is putting on New Zealand at the moment.

    Kane Williamson c Yadav b Mohammed Shami 69 (73b 8x4 1x6)

  • November 15, 2023 20:51
    NZ 219/2 in 32 overs

    The drinks break gives the Indian team some time to regroup and reevaluate its plans against two relentless batters.

    Jadeja with his eighth over. He has not had any success so far today. He reels in three dot balls on the trot against Mitchell. But Jadeja drops it short against Williamson, who pumps it to dee mid wicket for a four.

  • November 15, 2023 20:43
    NZ 213/2 in 31 overs

    Full from Bumrah and Mitchell hits him, striaght-batted, over long off for a SIX!! INCREDIBLE!!

    Williamson adds to Bumrah’s misery by carving him past extra cover for a four.

    Indian bowling unit is under the kind of pressure it hasn’t experienced yet in this ongoing World Cup. How will they respond to this situation?

  • November 15, 2023 20:38
    NZ 199/2 in 30 overs

    Kuldeep with his eighth over. Mitchell drags one to the leg side for a single. Williamson brings out the slog sweep now. Perfect placement, piercing the leg side field. FOUR!!

  • November 15, 2023 20:34
    NZ 188/2 in 29 overs

    Rohit turns to Bumrah for a breakthrough. He pulls out an off-cutter, drawing a mishit from Mitchell. It is high, but once again it lands safely and then runs away for a four.

    Wide from Bumrah and Mitchell slashes at it. Jadeja makes a diving stop to prevent a four.


    Half tracker from Bumrah. Williamson whacks it straight to Shami at mid-on. The ball spills out of his hands. What a miss!!

  • November 15, 2023 20:28
    NZ 180/2 in 28 overs

    Kuldeep too goes full. Mitchell brings out the reverse sweep to gather a four behind third man. The pressure of run-rate is forcing both these batters to go in search of quick runs and they have succeeded in doing it so far. Six runs from the over.

  • November 15, 2023 20:25
    NZ 174/2 in 27 overs

    Jadeja with his seventh over. Mitchell nudges one to deep point for a single. Williamson goes over extra cover to add another single. Jadeja pushes it up a little too much. No mistakes from Mitchell this time. Launched to the second tier. Massive Six!

  • November 15, 2023 20:22
    NZ 165/2 in 26 overs

    Sixth over for Kuldeep. Williamson punches one to long off to get to his fifty. It has taken him 58 balls to get the landmark.

    Full from Kuldeep and Mitchell tries to go after him. Absolutely no timing from him. But luckily for New Zealand, the ball lands safely in between long on and mid wicket.

  • November 15, 2023 20:16
    NZ 161/2 in 25 overs

    Jadeja to Mitchell, cuts the first one to pick a single. Williamson punches down to long on for another run. SIX! Mitchell laps up this overpitched delivery and sends it right back over the bowler’s head. Two runs down to fine leg next.

    NZ 148/2 in 23 overs

    Jadeja to continue. Mitchell picks a single on the first to bring up his half century. Four overthrows to finish. Silly from Jadeja. He fields a shot from Williamson but in an attempt to catch him out of his crease throws it back at the striker’s end. It is a wayward through and runs wide of Rahul all the way to the boundary.

  • November 15, 2023 20:06
    NZ 141/2 in 22 overs

    Kuldeeep for his fourth over. It seemed a quiet over until Williamson made room on the final delivery and slapped it through extra cover. 100 partnership for the duo.

    NZ 133/2 in 21 overs

    Jadeja again. Williamson charges down but can get only a single to long on. Mitchell misses his sweep and is struck on the pad. Nearly caught and bowled!

  • November 15, 2023 19:58
    NZ 124/2 in 20 overs

    NZ 118/2 in 19 overs

    Jadeja back into the attack. Williamson picks a single to deep square leg. A reverse sweep from Iyer for two runs. A single off the final delivery makes it four off the over.

  • November 15, 2023 19:46
    NZ 114/2 in 18 overs

    Kuldeep again! Mitchell taps a full delivery to long on for one. FOUR! Williamson picks the short delivery and pulls it to deep square leg. Appeals! Sharp turn and Williamson is trapped in front. India reviews the decision. Seems to be going down leg. Umpire’s call on the stumps so India keeps its review. 4 leg byes for Williamson. He wants to sweep but the ball clips his pad and runs to the fence. India asks for a third umpire review for a run out but replays show it was Rahul’s hand hitting the stumps. Williamson tapped to point and wanted a single only to be denied by his partner. But he was way too slow in getting back. Just about survives.

  • November 15, 2023 19:41
    NZ 104/2 in 17 overs

    Shami for his fourth over. SIX! Sublime! A length ball from Shami and Mitchell lofts it over long off. FOUR! Clobbers it through mid on. Shami is trying to pitch it up for swing but there is none on offer. Simple pickings for the batter. A single to long on to finish. 11 from the over.

    SIX! Lucky Williamson. Siraj goes for a short ball and Williamson gets a top edge which flies over the keeper into the sight-screen. A late cut to third man to get off strike on the next. Mitchell with a single down to long on. FOUR! Off the inside edge to fine leg.

  • November 15, 2023 19:29
    NZ 74/2 in 14 overs

    Jadeja to Mitchell, two runs. Chips it over cover, probably not with as much control as he’d have liked but still picks a couple.

  • November 15, 2023 19:22
    NZ 72/2 in 13 overs

    Siraj again. 4 leg byes! Goes between Williamson’s bat and pad, touches the back thigh and flies wide of Rahul. FOUR more! Charges down and packs it through point. A single to third man. A leg bye for Mitchell to end the over.

  • November 15, 2023 19:18
    NZ 61/2 in 12 overs

    Ravindra Jadeja to bowl his first over. Williamson punches to long on for one. Mitchell’s reverse sweep pops up off his arm and goes to the slip fielder. India wants a review but Rahul advises against it, and rightly so. FOUR! On the pads and Mitchell guides it down to fine leg. It’s a no ball too. The free hit yields just one run for NZ.

  • November 15, 2023 19:15
    NZ 54/2 in 11 overs

    Siraj for his second spell. FOUR for Mitchell. Lofts an overpitched delivery over covers. That’s 50 for New Zealand. FOUR more! Siraj tries a bouncer and Mitchell is swift in pulling it behind square.

  • November 15, 2023 19:08
    NZ 46/2 in 10 overs

    Shami for his third over. He is one wicket away from 50 World Cup scalps. Mitchell on strike. 5WIDES! Strays down leg and Rahul has no chance to save that. Mitchell slices one to mid on and a direct hit at the non-striker’s end forces a third umpire decision. Mitchell, however, is safely in. BEATEN! Williamson sees the ball whizz past his edge and to the keeper.

  • November 15, 2023 19:04
    NZ 40/2 in 9 overs

    Bumrah to Williamson. A maiden over - the first of the innings.

  • November 15, 2023 18:58
    NZ 40/2 in 8 overs

  • November 15, 2023 18:53
    NZ 35/1 in 7 overs

    Bumrah to Rachin. An inside edge on a delivery that nips back in, a single to fine leg. APPEALS FROM INDIA! Williamson is bamboozled by a delivery that shapes away from him. It takes a bit of the thigh on the way and India thinks it is bat. In the end, they decide against a review.

  • November 15, 2023 18:47
    NZ 34/1 in 6 overs

    First change for India. Mohammed Shami in. WICKET! Shami strikes first ball. Conway on his way back. He cannot resist the drive, the ball takes a thick edge and Rahul does the rest.

  • November 15, 2023 18:42
    NZ 30/0 in 5 overs

    Bumrah to continue, Conway on strike. Another wide from Bumrah. 5WIDES! Bumrah is not getting a grip on his line. An inside egde to fine leg for a single. A sharp nip-backer to Rachin but he gets an inside edge to avoid an potential leg before chance.

  • November 15, 2023 18:36
    NZ 23/0 in 4 overs

    Siraj to Rachin. He taps the third to cover and is eager for a single but Conway sends him back. BEATEN! Rachin is not really comfortable against Siraj. Again, makes a tentative push at an away-seamer. FOUR! On the pads and Rachin clips it over the square leg region.

  • November 15, 2023 18:31
    NZ 19/0 in 3 overs

    Beaten! Bumrah’s away-swinger again flies past Conway’s edge. A wide to follow. Strikes Conway on the pad on the second but it pitched outside the leg stump. A second wide of the over, but this time on the off side. The fourth one rises on Conway and he gets an inside edge onto his leg. FOUR!

  • November 15, 2023 18:26
    NZ 12/0 in 2 overs

    Mohammad Siraj from the other end. Rachin Ravindra faces his first. Defends the first delivery on length. Siraj sticking to the off-and-middle line and Rachin playing with a straight bat. EDGE and FOUR! No 2nd slip! Rachin pokes at a delivery but the ball flies through the empty second slip region.

  • November 15, 2023 18:21
    NZ 8/0 in 1 overs

    Bumrah to Conway, here we go! FOUR! Way to start the innings! Gets width and Conway slashes it past point. Another boundary! There is width on offer and Conway laps it up. Beaten! Bumrah gets the line on the fifth go. Pitches on off stump line and leaves the batter. Eight from the first over.

  • November 15, 2023 18:21
    Time for New Zealand’s reply

    India smashes highest total in World Cup knockouts

    India not only banished the ghosts of the 2019 World Cup semifinal but also registered the highest team total in any World Cup knockout match by racking up 397 runs in 50 overs. It was as perfect as a batting performance can get and all Indian batters stuck to the roles they have adopted in the tournament. Rohit Sharma was off the blocks in a flash, Shubman Gill accelerated after Rohit’s dismissal, Virat Kohli was watchful before teeing off and scoring a historic 50th ton while Shreyas Iyer was brutal. KL Rahul imparted the finishing touches towards the end and India couldn’t have asked for a better showing with the bat. Now, onto the bowlers to defend this against a Kiwi line-up that has shown the potential to hunt down big totals. Back for the chase soon. Stay tuned!

  • November 15, 2023 17:47
    IND 397/4 in 50 overs

    Southee to bowl. OUT! Suryakumar launches this high in the air and Phillips takes it this time.

Yorker but Rahul does well to make some room and slice this through to the third-man boundary. Good yorker and Rahul digs it out to long-on for a single. That’s the 50-run partnership off just 27 balls between Shreyas and Rahul. FOUR! In the slot, straight in Shreyas’ arc and he shovels this with ease to the midwicket fence. OUT! Slow and wide outside off stump. Shreyas looks to club this down the ground but it is caught at long-on. Suryakumar Yadav is in now and is off the mark with a single at deep square-leg as he whips this off this pads.

  • November 15, 2023 17:36
    IND 366/2 in 48 overs

    Southee here. SIX! In the slot, slower one and Shreyas clubs this for a six over deep midwicket and moves to 99 off 66. Driven to long-on for a single and consecutive hundreds for Shreyas.

    IND 354/2 in 47 overs

    Boult bowls his ninth over. Shreyas starts the over with a single at long-off. FOUR! Slower one angling across off, Rahul waits and cuts this behind point for a boundary. Brilliant yorker and Rahul cannot get his bat down in time and is lucky to get away. He goes for a reverse-scoop next ball and cannot connect as the ball goes off his glove.

  • November 15, 2023 17:26
    IND 347/2 in 46 overs

    Southee with the ball. Shreyas is on 90 off 62 balls. Rahul gives him strike with a single off the first ball. Shreyas drives down the ground for a single. FOUR! This is thumped on the leg-side by Rahul for his first boundary. Conway has hurt his knee trying to save the boundary but seems okay to continue as he gets up and walks around. Three dot balls to end the over. Rahul is hurt off the last one as a slower one hits him on the body.

  • November 15, 2023 17:22
    IND 341/2 in 45 overs

    KL Rahul is in next. Ravindra has the ball. Pitched up in the slot and Shreyas tonks this down the ground for a maximum, 93m long. Ravindra trying to keep out of Shreya’s hitting arc but this is too wide outsid off. SIX! Next one goes out of the ground as it is pitched up and within Shreyas’ range, who belts this down the ground.

  • November 15, 2023 17:19
    IND 327/2 in 44 overs

    Southee comes back. Shreyas comes back for a second after hitting this on leg-side. Dropped! Kohli steps out and flicks this to deep square-leg and it is Phillips, of all people, who puts this catch down. SIX! Kohli adds insult to injury by picking this length ball over Phillips this time for a maximum over deep square-leg. Good running too as Kohli hares back for a second next ball. OUT! Kohli goes! Stepped out again and flicked this behind square-leg and this is taken safely by Conway, who dives low in front to secure the catch.

  • November 15, 2023 17:13
    IND 314/1 in 43 overs

    Ravindra continues. Starts with a wide outside off. SIX! Shreyas drills this down the ground for a maximum. This was wide outside off again and Shreyas absolutely bludgeoned the ball. The partnership is now worth 150 and Kohli and Shreyas look set to cut loose now.

  • November 15, 2023 17:08
    IND 303/1 in 42 overs
