Indian Cricket Fans Burn Posters in Reaction to World Cup Loss

"To have the start we had was an outstanding way to try and kick things off and get into a position of strength".

In his post-match interview, current India captain Virat Kohli announced that Dhoni had not informed his teammates of any decision he had taken regarding his future career.

India needed 31 off the final two overs. We had a good day yesterday and I'm very proud of that effort.

Defending 239-8, Matt Henry and Trent Boult blew away India's star-studded top order that included Kohli and Rohit Sharma, the tournament's leading scorer, to reduce them to five for three wickets inside four overs.

The New Zealanders had lost their last three games in the group stage, which was topped by India, who themselves suffered only one defeat.

"But credit to the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving it around, it was an outstanding skill level on display and they made life very hard for our batsmen".

"They literally finished off the backbone of the Indian side and then there was a good fightback, hats off to MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja, especially Jadeja in just his second game of the World Cup", he said.

Google Stadia reassures users, "You own the right to play it"

He really made a fantastic fight out of it, he made it a brilliant game.

"His bowling was fantastic, great batting and great fielding, but he can not do it on his own and unfortunately, he was left with too much to do in the end".

"It was a tough surface so nothing promised but naturally to dismiss Dhoni in whatever fashion is extremely important, but for a direct hit run-out very similar to Jadeja's I think was a big moment in the game", said the Kiwi captain. Ross Taylor was 67 not out and Tom Latham was at 3 when the play was stopped. Dhoni was run out and as he walked out, India's chances had ended in the semi-finals.

Indian fans though were prompt to give back to Waqar remembering him of Pakistan's chequered history with match fixing and how he got slammed by Ajay Jadeja in 1996 World Cup quarter final.

"They should have played more positively against Santner". If you saw their fast bowlers, they didn't try too much upfront.

"That's what happens in the World Cup and you just have to accept it and move on".

"It was a great semi-final and we're happy to be on the right side of it. We were not good enough and that is the nature of this tournament", he concluded.
