Indian fans hurt by World Cup exit but proud of team

Martin Guptill’s bullet throw from deep backward square caught MS Dhoni inches short of the crease and snuffed out India’s last hopes of a heist. AP

Kashmir Media Service reported that after India's dream of winning the World Cup was shattered by New Zealand, residents of Srinagar could not hide their joy. "And when you lose 3 for 5 it is very hard to come back into the game". "But the way they bowled in that first half an hour was the difference in the game", he said.

Kohli admitted that India had clearly not been ready for the challenge presented by New Zealand's seamers, who had been given a total of 239 to defend after adding a further 28 runs to their overnight 211 for 5.

"The sun will still rise tomorrow", was the main headline on the sports page of India's largest selling English daily The Times of India, while the Hindustan Times described the team's failed attempt to win a third title as the "Knockout Blues". "Accept the failure as it shows on the scoreboard".

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

Chasing a modest target of 240, the Indian top order suffered a stunning batting collapse to leave the team reeling at 24 for four.

"Contributions can come in so many different ways".

"In my watching Jadeja for 10 years, me playing with him as well, this is probably his top quality, like best knock according to me because the kind of pressure", Kohli said. In his three World Cup semi-final appearances, he has made scores of 9 (2011), 1 (2015) and 1 again today.

He admitted afterwards that he had been unable to control his emotions in the moment, but owned up to failing when it mattered most for his team.

Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli has suggested the International Cricket Council to consider changing the format of the Cricket World Cup after India's dramatic semi-final exit. "We all know the game is a fine line in a number of ways".
