It was a hard day for Team India as they lost to Newzealand in Semi-Finals of World Cup 2019. The defeat shattered the dreams of Billion Indians. Having lost the toss, team India did their best at bowling however the chase wasn’t that easy owing to the pitch and weather conditions. If it hadn’t rained yesterday, the result might have been different. Despite the fall of early wickets, we saw an impeccable inning from Ravindra Jadeja and this performance of his will be remembered forever. On the other hand, this was the last World Cup match for MS Dhoni and his contribution to Indian Cricket will be cherished forever.
Post-match, social media flooded with memes, posts trolling the loss and at the same time supporting the team for their fighting spirit. From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Celebrities from Bollywood and Cricket, here are their first-hand reactions to India’s loss to Newzealand in the Semis.
A disappointing result, but good to see #TeamIndia’s fighting spirit till the very end.
India batted, bowled, fielded well throughout the tournament, of which we are very proud.
Wins and losses are a part of life. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavours. #INDvsNZ
