Occupied Kashmir celebrates as India faces defeat in cricket world cup

Martin Guptill’s run out of MS Dhoni changed the course of the match

Kohli was effusive in his praise for Ravindra Jadeja (77 off 59 balls), who, in the company of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50), stitched 116 runs for the seventh wicket to keep India in the hunt.

In his post-match news conference, a glum captain Kohli said it was heart-breaking that his team, also the bookies' favourites to lift the trophy on Sunday, had to exit the showpiece due to some ordinary cricket in a 45-minute spell.

MS Dhoni's run-out in the penultimate over of India batting came as a big shock to every Indian cricket fan as he was the only one expected to take the men in blue to victory after Indian team faced a top-order collapse. The New Zealand new-ball bowlers bowled brilliantly and exploited the overcast conditions to the fullest as they deflated India's chase of 240 removing Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the space of the first four overs. India were gone when he came out to bat. However, both were dismissed before India could reach the total and New Zealand ultimately booked their place in the final with an 18-run win.

"We knew we had to run our twos well and use those last 23 deliveries as well as we could to get us to that point". India went down fighting against New Zealand to bow out of the tournament.

At 5 for 3 after 19 balls, India's soft underbelly - their middle order - was brought into play earlier than at any other stage of the tournament. No one wants to lose a game. "So they know how to put pressure because they play very consistent cricket".

"I don't think that I would like to break things down immediately, but in time we'll have to sit down and analyse where we went wrong and the things we could have done right in this game particularly", said Kohli.

Kohli also quashed any knowledge of Dhoni potentially retiring, saying the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has not spoken to him about his future plans. "They don't sledge, they don't irritate the opposition, they just focus on doing the job and they have a very good sportsman's spirit". "It's a different challenge for all the teams to turn up on that day and be absolutely at the top of their game and whoever does that they get the result, as you saw today".

"We are sad but not devastated".

Jadeja's knock came after his tiff with former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, who had called the all-rounder a "bits and pieces player".
