Even if we get knocked out, if like New Zealand to go through. Be nice for someone new to win it. Fed up of Australia and India.

Fantastic bowling from NZ so far, I reckon India will be lucky to get out of this, they don't have much batting left after these 2 and Pandya has a habit of gifting his wicket after a good start.

India need the Dhoni of past to show up here, not the Dhoni of this tournament.

I reckon this match is the first time they've needed Dhoni to do the 'dig in and rotate the strike' job that he's been doing. That said in this final push they need him to do a lot more.

This has turned into an exciting finish

I'm just listening on TMS because I'm working as well. My boss has the Sky feed on his PC :(

Kiwis win.

Great chase by Jadeja and MSD but once those two went, the chance had gone

Two pieces of brilliance in the field from NZ; the catch by Neesham and the throw by Guptill to run out MSD

What a tense finish and credit to the Kiwis for holding their nerve.

Their win has cost me £250 as my CWC bet is off due to India's exit!

Delighted to at least have someone to support in the final. Didn't fancy the idea of it being India v Aussies.

Hopefully England can do the business, and preferably without using a reserve day as I'm "working" on Friday.

Today was triumph of pure hard work and effort overcoming  avarice  and arrogance. Well done New Zealand.

What do people find so dislikeable about the Indian team ?

Jadeja is a joy to watch in all aspects of the game. I'll concede that Kohli is arrogant but he's regarded as one of the hardest workers in the sport (this was discussed on TMS yesterday)

Bollocks they’re batting first. Early wickets please.
