Fans are heartbroken seeing MS Dhoni cry after India's failed run chase

Chasing a modest target of 240, India's top order was left reeling as Matt Henry and Trent Boult reduced the world's number one side to 24/4.

However, Dhoni also fell for 50 by a stunning direct throw from Martin Guptill.

Kane Williamson further added, "experience at this level and in these occasions is so important and his contribution today and yesterday but throughout this campaign was extremely important and that partnership that he was involved in with Jadeja who came in and hit the ball better than anybody in both teams was very, very valuable and he's a world-class cricketer". "It was a brilliant fightback from the lower order after the top-order batsmen gave away their wickets on ordinary deliveries", Akhtar said in a video posted on his Youtube channel.

India got off a disastrous start as they lost their three crucial wickets in a row in just 3.1 overs.

The 34-year-old had managed just six off 25 balls before trudging off the ground.

Former India cricketer turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, who had called Ravindra Jadeja a " bits and pieces cricketer' also appreciated the left-hander for his courageous knock.

Dinesh Karthik took 21 balls to get off the mark as a shell-shocked India looked to rebuild but he was on his way when Jimmy Neesham dived to his left to take a stunner inches off the ground at backward point, following a thick outside edge off Henry. "And had Dhoni dived, who knows, he wouldn't have got run-out and would have taken India across the finishing line", he added.

The right-handed batsman Karthik, who began his career in the similar year when MS Dhoni made it to the global circuit, could face an axe in the day-long format. "Dhoni is an absolute legend".

England captain Eoin Morgan on the team's return to form: "I think we're probably more confident than we were three games ago". Soon, the victory looked within India's reach.

A shock loss to Sri Lanka preceded England again falling short against Australia but the triumphs over India and New Zealand showed their mettle as they lived up to their billing as pre-tournament favourites.

Even after Team India lost the semifinals and knocked out of ICC World Cup 2019, Indian Cricket fans didn't stop supporting them and flooded the social media platforms with wholehearted gestures and comments.
