India lost their second consecutive World Cup semi-final and this time it was against the underdog New Zealand. India lost by 18 runs as New Zealand bowlers bowled superbly to defend a low score on board. New Zealand is now in their second consecutive World Cup final as they lost to Australia in 2015 final.

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi had some words of encouragement for the Indian team who face disappointment today at Old Trafford, Manchester. Narendra Modi took to his personal twitter account to heap praise on the Indian team and wished them well for their future endeavours.

Narendra Modi wrote, “A disappointing result, but good to see #TeamIndia’s fighting spirit till the very end. India batted, bowled, fielded well throughout the tournament, of which we are very proud. Wins and losses are a part of life. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavours. #INDvsNZ”


India lost after they lost their top three batsmen early in the game. The powerful trio of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were dismissed for 1 run each. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya were looking good to settle but both of them lost their wicket on 32 runs each.
