As soon as team India's top order collapsed against New Zealand in the World Cup semifinal at the Old Trafford on Wednesday, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept their side in hunt as India chased 240 runs for victory.
After sometime, Jadeja, who scored (77) fell after adding 116 runs for the seventh wicket with Dhoni (50). Meanwhile, the former India skipper was caught short of his crease by Martin Guptill with a brilliant direct hit in the penultimate over of the match. India eventually went down by 18 runs to crash out of the World Cup. That moment broke all Dhoni fans heart! Not just that, even the English umpire Richard Kettleborough, was shocked and stunned with the run-out.
As per Indian Express report, reflecting on the loss India captain Virat Kohli said, “MS had a good partnership with him, and again a game of small margins, run out by a small margin. Always feels bad when you play well all tournament and then 45 minutes of bad cricket puts you out. New Zealand deserve it, they put us under more pressure. At times, I think our shot-selection could have been better.”
“We thought we had restricted New Zealand to a chaseable score on any surface but the way they come out with the ball in the first half-an-hour was what made the difference,” he added.
WHAT A MOMENT OF BRILLIANCE!
