New Zealand has secured a place in the Cricket World Cup final, with a stunning victory over India.

The Black Caps overcame the tournament favourites by 18 runs.

India were chasing 240 to win, but were dismissed for 221 in the final over.

Newstalk ZB's Andrew Alderson told Andrew Dickens India's mood quickly changed from confident to forlorn, as the wickets began to fall.

“I don’t think India really recognised the task which was ahead of them, the chase was a lot more difficult then they imagined.”

“Every single man in the Black Caps contributed in some significant way that was reflective of a champion team.”

New Zealand will face either England or Australia at Lord's in London on Sunday night in the final.
