The dream of Indian fans has been shattered as the bunch was backing Virat Kohli to repeat the heroics of Kapil Dev and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In a semi-final game where the men in blue were expected to prevail, Kiwis delivered a spirited performance to down India by 18 runs in Manchester, thus booking their second World Cup final berth on the trot.
In a dejected mood, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to Twitter to share his feelings. The 30-year old admitted that losing a golden opportunity to play the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament disappointed all the team members. Kohli added that his bunch decided to give their all to bring honor to India, but New Zealand came out as a better team.
India’s run machine who failed in yet another 50-over semi-final game didn’t forget to thank his team’s fans who turned out in larger numbers to back India. Nevertheless, the prolific batter is confident to learn from mistakes and come back strongly in the upcoming fixtures of the Indian team.
