WESTBURY, N.Y. (AP) There was no upset for the United States this time as the home team was easily defeated by cricket heavyweight India in the Twenty20 World Cup on Wednesday.

Suryakumar Yadav's half-century saw India complete a seven-wicket victory over the US, who had shocked Pakistan last week.

With the win, India reached the Super 8 round. The US can advance by beating Ireland on Friday.

In a later match at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad, Sherfane Rutherford scored an unbeaten 68 off 39 deliveries to help the West Indies on their great escape (the co-hosts defeated New Zealand by 13 runs).

The Caribbean line-up, 149-9 in its 20 overs, was 76-7 before the Rutherford-led recovery. Alzarri Joseph snared four New Zealand wickets and Gudakesh Motie took three, including New Zealand captain Kane Williamson for 1, to restrict the Black Caps to 136-9 in reply.

On Long Island, Yadvav's 50 runs came off 49 balls, including two boundaries and two sixes. He scored 72 runs off 65 balls in an unbeaten fourth-wicket stand with Shivam Dube, who scored 31 not out as India finished 111-3 in 18.2 overs in reply to the United States' 110-8.

Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh returned figures of 4-9, including two wickets in the first over, to restrict the co-hosts after India won the toss and elected to play at the Nassau County International Stadium.

India ran into early trouble in its chase Indian-born medium pacer Saurabh Netravalkar continued his golden run for the Americans.

After bowling the co-hosts over Pakistan, he celebrated the wickets of Indian superstars Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Kohli fell behind to a golden duck dismissed off the first delivery he faced in what is sure to be a career highlight for Netravalkar. Sharma (3) reverted to a slower delivery as Netravalkar finished with 2-18 in four overs.

Rishabh Pant scored 18 off 20 balls hitting at number 3 before being bowled by Ali Khan. As India struggled at 39-3 in 7.3 overs, the US team briefly had visions of an even bigger shock.

West Indies advance

Left-hander Rutherford turned the home team's fortunes around and went to the crease as West Indies were tottering at 22-4 after 5.4 overs. Rutherford scored 18 on the last, which culminated in a six and a boundary.

The loss left New Zealand with a high chance of not making it to the second round. If Afghanistan beats Papua New Guinea on Thursday, three-time number two New Zealand will be out of contention.

The Black Caps were on top for most of the first half of the match.

But Rutherford went on the attack as West Indies added 58-2 in the last five overs of their innings.

He was 15 off 14 deliveries when star all-rounder Andre Russell was 14 out in the 13th over, and he accelerated with the lower order in a 72-minute counter-attack with six sixes and two boundaries.

It's a good feeling to help my team. That's what we live for and what we work hard for, man-of-the-match Rutherford said during the innings break. It was a very difficult surface to start on. I think 149 is a brilliant score for this wicket.

After the game, Rutherford had a more optimistic tone: It's just the beginning of something big to come and hopefully we can keep winning and keep the momentum going.

New Zealand started well after winning the toss and fielding, with Trent Boult (3-16) bowling opener Johnson Charles ending the first over.

Tim Southee (2-21), recalled after missing New Zealand's opening defeat to Afghanistan, dismissed dangerman Nicholas Pooran for 12 in the fourth over, setting up a run of three wickets for three runs.

Lockie Ferguson deceived Roston Chase with a slower ball to make it 21-3 and skipper Rovman Powell (1) was caught behind to Southee five balls later.

Russell went on the attack but his dismissal, caught in the depths of Boult's bowling, looked an insurmountable setback until Rutherford rose to the challenge.

The quality of Sherfane's innings was high, New Zealand skipper Williamson said. The batting depth in their side was certainly favourable. We can't make excuses and have to find ways.
