Leading India at a World Cup for the first time, Kohli's dream of making the final has been shattered despite India finishing top in the group phase.

Indian cricket fans were feeling pain rather than anger on Thursday as they tried to come to terms with their team's shocking World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand.

The tweet read, "Dhoni you deserved such disgraceful exit for polluting the gentleman's game with fixing and bias!"

"Every game throughout the round-robin was worth a couple of points so they were all important", Williamson said.

India went down fighting against New Zealand to bow out of the tournament.

By the third over of the second innings, New Zealand had India on the ropes at 5-3, with Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and star captain Virat Kohli all falling for one run apiece. While that did not look like a substantial total at the time, a pair of hard-worked half-centuries from Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor had made it clear that the surface was not easy for run-scoring.


Rumours are doing the round that MS Dhoni will bid adieu to worldwide cricket after the ongoing World Cup, but no official announcement has been made for the same.

"Today we were not good enough".

For those into risk analysis and birds, New Zealand was always going to be a tough customer as a harbinger of a "black swan", or an event that comes as a surprise - and as this editorial amply provides an example of - an event that is rationalised in hindsight. "Accept the failure as it shows on the scoreboard".

"I don't think that I would like to break things down immediately", said Kohli. As for Pant, Kohli said he already understood his mistake but it was all part of the learning process for a 21-year-old player who had not even been an original selection in this, his first World Cup. "We all know the game is a fine line in a number of ways".

"Because many players will not be able to process it".

Jadeja (77) and Dhoni (50) shared a 116-run stand for the seventh wicket. India Today YouTube channel offers latest news videos on Politics, Business, Cricket, Bollywood, Lifestyle, Auto, Technology, Travel, Entertainment and a lot more.
