India's Kohli says fans should be 'measured' after World Cup woe

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. India's succumbing to a "black kiwi" moment at Old Trafford, Manchester, and being eased out of the Cricket World Cup, is one such "black swan" event Indian fans are having to deal with and gulp down.

After India's shocking loss to New Zealand in the semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019 during which Dhoni played a fighting knock, many believed that it was his last worldwide innings. I am hearing that you want to retire.

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.

"Every game throughout the round-robin was worth a couple of points so they were all important", Williamson said.

Rumours are doing the round that MS Dhoni will bid adieu to global cricket after the ongoing World Cup, but no official announcement has been made for the same.

"We are not shying away from accepting that we didn't stand up to the challenge and we were not good enough under pressure".

Kashmir Media Service reported that after India's dream of winning the World Cup was shattered by New Zealand, residents of Srinagar could not hide their joy. "Accept the failure as it shows on the scoreboard".

"Because many players will not be able to process it".

He even tweeted himself stating that New Zealand is Pakistan's, new love.

Kohli also quashed any knowledge of Dhoni potentially retiring, saying the veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has not spoken to him about his future plans. "You make errors, you make decisions which are not right at that time and you have to accept it".

Jadeja put on 116 runs with MS Dhoni, who made 50, for the seventh wicket to raise hopes of a fightback, but the Black Caps held their nerve in the closing stages.
