MS Dhoni could’ve batted at number five: Sachin Tendulkar

Needing just 240 to reach Sunday's final, two-time champions India were undone by a dismal start to their run chase.

In his column for the Times of India, Kallis wrote, "Incredible drama is what cricket lovers expect from the World Cup and that is exactly what India's semifinal against New Zealand delivered - across two days". It was New Zealand's attack on Team India which led to the top four batsmen (Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik) go back to the pavilion. "Dhoni would have for sure done something and made sure on either side of him", Sachin said.

"We've played outstanding cricket throughout this tournament".

"And in my watching Jadeja for 10 years, me playing with him as well, this is probably his top quality, like best knock according to me because the kind of pressure, the stage we are at, nearly out of the game and then he produces that".

One of the favourites to lift the World Cup trophy, the Indian team was defeated by New Zealand by 18 runs in Manchester. "But the way they bowled in that first half an hour was the difference in the game", he said. However, I think Virat Kohli was unlucky as it was a poor decision to give him out.

He would eventually be honored for this activism, receiving an award from then-Secretary of Veteran Affairs James Peake in 2009. His campaign became a cultural argument against Mexicans as much as it was an economic one for blue-collar Americans.

"But credit to the New Zealand bowlers, the way they bowled with the new ball, moving it around, it was an outstanding skill level on display and they made life very hard for our batsmen".

While speaking to India Today, Sachin Tendulkar stressed the importance of sending MS Dhoni up the order and felt he should've batted when India were 5/3.

"Indian fans should be proud of the way their team played in the World Cup", he added.

Jadeja and MS Dhoni put on 116 runs for the seventh wicket to fix the damage, but their wickets spelt the end for the pre-tournament favourites.

"Trent Boult and Matt Henry's opening spell was one of the best you'll see, and to dismiss three incredibly talented India batsman to have them five for three takes something special".
