Indian cricketer Dhoni deserved for the 'disgraceful exit:' Pakistani minister

Dhoni's got Kolhi's back, ICC's tweet goes viral with fans

But Mohammed Shami sent back Mohammad Nabi, Aftab Alam and Mujeeb Ur Rahman in succession to post the second Indian hat-trick (after Chetan Sharma vs New Zealand in 1987) at a World Cup.

"I think Dhoni had to hold the innings from one end and allow Jadeja to play freely".

Star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli had misfired at Old Trafford, India's top three making just one apiece, as they lurched to 24 for four and then 92 for six chasing 240 on the reserve day of this semi-final. "If there is a low total, we knew there's probably only one or two sides in world cricket that will put seven fielders in the ring and that was always going to be New Zealand", he said.

New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult said that the partnership between Ravindra Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni had his team concerned during the semifinal clash here as the two absorbed the pressure nicely to keep India in the hunt.

"It's tough, 45 minutes of bad cricket put you out of the tournament".

Meeting New Zealand in the first semi final played in Manchester was considered to be a mere formality as far as every Indian supporter was concerned.

"They absorbed the pressure nicely and anything can happen with Dhoni and Jadeja at the crease, so it's just nice to come out on the right side", Boult said.

"With the new ball they were outstanding with the areas that they hit".

India are a world-class side but cricket is fickle in its nature, especially when it comes to the white ball game. First up, it was Rohit's batting masterclass and then that ball from Kuldeep Yadav to dismiss Babar Azam.

"We love Team India, we love Kohli, we love Mahi (MS Dhoni) and forever we will love cricket".

Earlier following Pakistan's exit from the World Cup in the group stage, many former cricketers of the country had said that India deliberately lost to England in the league stage to oust Sarfaraz Ahmed's men out of the competition, a claim which was even rejected by the Pakistan skipper himself.

But the match finished with three balls to spare when Chahal edged to wicketkeeper Tom Latham, a review confirming his dismissal and New Zealand's shock victory.

This has been a woeful tournament with the bat for the opener, with Guptill - the leading run-scorer at the 2015 World Cup - out for just one, his fifth single score in this edition, when the rain-interrupted game began on Tuesday.
