India today lost to New Zealand with 18 runs. And, this loss ended India’s billion dreams to repeat the 1983 and 2011 in 2019. Also, with winning this match, New Zealand has confirmed their seat in the World Cup finales.
Williamson, who won the toss, opted to bat first and the team put up a challenge of not-so-big 239 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar played a big role in limiting the opponents by taking 4 wickets and gave 43 runs in his spell.
The Indian team started off with a disappointing performance but Dhoni and Jadeja tried to save the game with a 100-run partnership. But as soon as Jadeja got out, it became hard for the remaining team to chase the target.
Next semi-final is #Australia versus #England #AUSvENG and will be played at 3:00 PM India time.
Despite India losing the match, the Indian social media did come out in full support of the team. Here are some of the tweets that India tweeted in support of our team:
