New Zealand pacer Matt Henry accounted for three wickets to help his side reach the ICC Cricket World Cup final following victory by a margin of 18 runs against India at Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday.
After being handed a moderate target of 240 to defend, Henry accounted for the early dismissals of openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul resulting in a poor start, accounting for Dinesh Karthik's wicket further on.
India were bowled out for 221 runs in 49.3 overs on the back of an excellent performance by the New Zealand bowling attack led by Henry. Earlier, Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar accounted for three wickets as well, to help restrict the Kiwis to a score of 239/8 in 50 overs.
However, both the bowlers failed to complete a five-wicket haul despite coming quite close to the feat. A total of eight bowlers have managed to claim a five-wicket haul in the tournament so far.
|1||Mitchell Starc||Australia||West Indies||Won|
|2||James Neesham||New Zealand||Afghanistan||Won|
|4||Shakib Al Hasan||Bangladesh||Afghanistan||Won|
|6||Mitchell Starc||Australia||New Zealand||Won|
