NZ junior cricketers miss out on Tri-Series final

5:19 am on 11 July 2013

The Indian under-19 cricket team has convincingly beaten New Zealand by seven wickets to remain undefeated in the Tri-Series tournament being held in Darwin, Australia.

India chased down New Zealand's first-inning total of 119 in just over 24 overs.

Their successful pursuit ended New Zealand's hopes of a place in the final, who finish behind second-placed Australia due to an inferior net run-rate to the hosts.
