In all their matches, India overcame their opponents by huge margins. Against Australia, India chased down the target by 6 wickets. In the matches following it, India went on to beat other teams by either a lot of balls to spare or by a lot of runs. It has been a sensational effort from the home side, with every player contributing towards the success of the team. Against New Zealand, it was one such performance.
With the bat, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, and KL Rahul shined. With the ball, Mohammed Shami had a field day as he claimed 7/57 with the ball. At the other end, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav came back well to control the flow of runs. The performance of India in the match and in the tournament has been praised by former cricketers and experts.

Kane Willaimson, the losing captain of the semifinal, also spoke about India's dominance in the tournament. The Kiwi captain said that India has been on a different level altogether and their players are playing seriously good cricket altogether. Kane added that the performance of India in the tournament has been incredible so far.
"Yeah, for India's next match? Yeah. They're the best team in the world and they're all playing seriously good cricket, so that's tough. And I think we see in cricket- often it's surrounded with failure and how you deal with it. The way they've played throughout this tournament has been incredible," said Kane Williamson. India is set to face either Australia or South Africa in the final.
