Rohit Sharma thanks fans with a heavy heart after World Cup exit

India's World Cup exit 'breaks a billion hearts' - Capital Sports

A spectacular fight to the finish saw a disciplined New Zealand side outclassing tournament favourites India by 18 runs on Wednesday and advancing to the final of the Cricket World Cup 2019. MS Dhoni showed why big players play in big matches.

The England legend made the bold claim after India were knocked out of the competition by New Zealand earlier today.

Hours after the heartbreaking exit from the tournament, Rohit Sharma took to Twitter to leave a lovely message for the fans. Jadeja departed in the 48th over after scoring 77 while Dhoni departed in the next after scoring 50. England beat Australia by 8 wickets to become the second team to reach the 2019 World Cup final. The ball was just clipping the bails and he was given out by the on-field umpire. "While we are all supportive of the players and they had a good tournament with the exception of this bad day in office (in the semi-final against New Zealand), the support staff's processes and decision-making will surely be scrutinised thoroughly prior to any decision being taken about their future", he added.

After Matt Henry got the scalp of Sharma, Trent Boult trapped Kohli LBW before Henry had India 5-3 with only 19 balls bowled as Rahul was also caught behind.

Tommy Robinson slapped with 9 months in jail for ‘contempt of court’
The judges also rejected claims by Yaxley-Lennon that he had made checks in the court about reporting restrictions. TOMMY ROBINSON has been jailed for nine months today after being found guilty of contempt of court.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan Vaughan wasted little time before trolling India and in particular, their skipper Virat Kohli, posting a picture of the superstar batsman holding a plane ticket on his Instagram account.

India's 24 for four after the first powerplay was the lowest of the tournament - beating New Zealand's score of 27 for one yesterday. Jadeja and Dhoni revived India's hopes with a century-plus stand.

"No one really gave us a shot here, and if we go there and have a similar mindset of just scrapping and giving it our best, then hopefully we can get across the line - and go one better than any side that New Zealand's ever produced". However, in the end that proved to be not enough, especially after Dhoni was caught short of crease by a brilliant direct hit by Martin Guptill. "However, he was unfortunate and couldn't take India to the finals".
