Virat Kohli reacts to criticism after Indias World Cup exit

As it turned out, the Kiwis posted a total of 239 runs in 50 overs after which they had very few takers in the market and the rate for hot favourite India was Rs 4.35 whereas for New Zealand it was Rs 49.

Virat Kohli said that he was heartbroken after New Zealand's 18-run victory over India in the first World Cup semi-final at Old Trafford.

Dhoni tried a quick double in the 48th over but Martin Guptill threw a bullet throw that hit directly at the wickets and send him back to the pavilion.

Rajveer who lost over Rs 10 crore in this match further added, "Besides Gurugram, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and Delhi, where thousands of big punters had reserved suites and rooms in five star hotels for organising late night parties, had to cancel their parties/get-togethers after they suffered huge losses as India went down fighting in the 48th over".

He came out to bat when India was in a spot of bother at 92/6.

In what was dubbed a "moment of brilliance", Guptill collected the ball from infield and instinctively launched the ball towards the stumps, bypassing the onrushing Colin de Grandhomme anticipating the throw at the wicket. However, I think Virat Kohli was unlucky as it was a poor decision to give him out.

"The way Jadeja and Dhoni were hitting the ball, they were likely to win, but our fielders were then outstanding", he signed off.

"Aaj kal main sun rahi hun ke Aap retire hona chahte hain (I hear you want to retire)", Ms Mangeshkar said today in a tweet addressed to the cricketer who led India to the 2011 World Cup triumph.

Faced with a seemingly unattainable target, the Indians sensed urgency, and Dhoni and partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar pushed for a second run on the fourth ball of the penultimate over.

He also termed 37-year-old Dhoni as legend.

"But in time we will have to sit down and analyse things that we could have done right in this game. However, he was unfortunate and couldn't take India to the finals". "Because the kind of cricket we played in this tournament, we know where we stood as a team", Kohli added.
