Astrologer's prediction on India's loss at semi-final turns true

The series against the West Indies comprises three T20 Internationals (August 3 to 8), two of which will be played in Florida, USA. Their shot selections cost India a place in the World Cup final. With Jadeja back in the pavilion, India's hopes rested entirely on Dhoni, whose shoulders had just started to loosen. The game of cricket is a great leveller and yesterday's hero can be today's zero. Jadeja hammered 4 fours and 4 sixes but fell when India needed him most.

Chaudhry tweeted: "Pakistanion ki Nayi Mohabbat NewZeeland (sic) (New Zealand: The new love for Pakistanis)".

"So, it was a brilliant start for us with the ball and I guess on the other side of that coin, India would not have been as happy with that start". Who knows, Dhoni might have produced a miracle, although the chances of that happening were very remote.

Dhoni, like Miandad, had a forlorn look on his face once the giant screen displayed "OUT" and took the long walk to the dressing room with a million thoughts running on his mind dejected at not being able to complete the job for the country.

Balaji said that the New Zealand will emerge as the ultimate victor in the World Cup tournament 2019 adding that Kane Williamson will be named as the Man of the series.

How ironical it is that Dhoni's final World Cup innings was yet another knock which left opinion divided, like many of his recent knocks.

"Ravindra Jadeja along with Dhoni fought brilliantly and got India so close but NZ were brilliant with the new ball and that was decisive", he said. "However, he was unfortunate and couldn't take India to the finals". When Jadeja got out, the required run rate was 12 per over, which became 15.5 in the final two overs. "And like our boss Kohli has said, Dhoni will forever be our captain in our hearts", he told AFP.

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

"You have missed thousands of stumping and catches too but still you are playing".

He also termed 37-year-old Dhoni as legend.

Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya are batsmen well known for their flair ahead of any stoicism.

But Kane Williamson's side bowled superbly to rock India, with three top-order wickets from paceman Matthew Henry proving the key contribution in dismissing the pre-tournament favourites for 221. With their next global assignment more than two weeks away now, the players are now likely to take a break from the game and head to different directions to spend some time away from the game. But Virat has also been stressing that his team was a flexible unit and has all the flanks covered. Since then, he has not wasted a single opportunity to slam Dhoni.
