Team India receives hefty prize money after semis exit

MS Dhoni came in at number six in the batting order

Continuing the match on the next day, New Zealand finished at a total of 240 runs.

Skipper Virat Kohli has, however, refrained from making any statement on the senior player's future.

Dinesh Karthik soon joined the prominent batsmen back in pavilion after losing his wicket for six, leaving India reeling at 24/4 in 10 overs. "But sudden criticism to Virat Kohli and blaming him for everything is not fair", he said.

"We've spent thousands of pounds on the semi-final and final".

Many experts were baffled by Kohli's choice to go for the semi-final with just two recognised fast bowlers. My heart is heavy as I'm sure yours is too.

In that scenario, the team which they defeated in the semis, India, are likely to take their place in the final and play England for the trophy.

Here's how Twitter users reacted while demanding Kohli's removal as the national team captain.

The New Zealand team management are trying to placate the four rebel cricketers by offering them plum positions in the team. This prompted Rayudu to make a shock retirement announcement from all forms of cricket. Rishabh Pant, who joined the Indian squad after replacing Vijay Shankar, was also visible in the background.

With India getting eliminated from the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, eyeballs have once again diverted towards former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In fact, Bangar saying that all-rounder Vijay Shankar was fit just before he was ruled out has also been taken note of.

After serving a ban for the infamous sandpaper incident, Steve Smith and David Warner came back into the Australian squad and played as if they had never left global cricket.

Recently, a report by the Dainik Jagran newspaper had said that the current Indian team was grappling with serious factionalism with the team being divided into two camps.

While the Committee of Administrators (CoA) have given the support staff 45 more days to coach the Indian players, some of the members could be asked some serious questions when the next appointment is undertaken by the BCCI. From a goalkeeper in school to a travelling ticket examiner in Indian Railways to being the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team, Dhoni's journey has been one of might, hard work and vast success. Just shows World Cup's aren't easy to win.
