WORLD CUP SCHEDULE
Kohli’s side suffered a 18-run defeat to New Zealand at Old Trafford. After the match, the Indian captain took to Twitter and posted an emotional message.
“Firstly I want to thank all our fans who came in huge numbers to support the team. You made it a memorable tournament for all of us & we definitely felt the love showered upon the team. We are all disappointed & share the same emotions as you. We gave everything we had. Jai hind,” Kohli wrote.

Chasing 240 for victory, India lost four of their top batsmen for 24 runs in the first 10 overs and were eventually bowled out for 221.
The unexpected loss left a largely Indian-dominated crowd at Old Trafford very disappointed. While over a billion fans back home tried to come to terms with the shocking loss that ended the team’s bid for a third World Cup crown.
India made their way to the semi-final after finishing on top of the points table in the group stage. Kohli’s men played 9 matches, won 7 and lost just one in the group stage.
Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan, who had to leave the team and the World Cup after suffering a thumb fracture also tweeted to support his team-mates. Dhawan wrote: “We gave a great fight, boys! Kudos to your spirit. Congratulations @blackcaps on reaching the finals”.
