In the aftermath of India’s exit from the World Cup, it has been reported that an Indian cricket fan has died of shock after watching MS Dhoni’s unfortunate run-out dismissal in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old Srikanta Maity, a resident of the city of Kolkata in West Bengal, collapsed immediately after watching Dhoni get run-out when India was just 25 runs away from victory. He was apparently watching the match on his phone.
“We rushed to his help on hearing a loud thud. We saw him lying unconscious on the floor. We took him to Khanakul Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival,” his neighbours told the media.
