After plunging the whole of India into sadness, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson hoped that the Indian fans were not too angry at the Black Caps. In the first semi-final of the World Cup 2019, the Kiwis defeated India by 18 runs in what was a close game. 

At the post-match press conference, a journalist told the Kiwi skipper that he had sent a billions hearts into a state of mourning. Williamson, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL, and has also captained the franchise, knows a thing or two about the passion of the fans from india, and spoke about it at length. 

"I hope they're not too angry.

"Obviously, the passion for the game in India is unrivalled and we are all fortunate to play this sport and have a country like India be right behind it.

"But hopefully we can adopt 1.5 billion supporters and they'll be supporting us, what do you reckon?" 

New Zealand have advanced to the finals for the second time in a row, after qualifying for the summit clash in 2015. They had met Australia at Melbourne four years ago. 

The Kiwis await the winners of the second semi-final that will be held at Edgbaston between England and Australia.
