India entered the World Cup as the second-ranked side and was also one of the four favourites to win the trophy. But they failed to chase the target of 240 runs.
The opener of Indian cricket team Rohit Sharma who has hit a record-setting number of five centuries got dismissed just at one run. The spirited effort of Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja couldn’t save team India from the defeat against the Black Caps.
The disappointment of the defeat could be easily seen on the faces of the Indian players. Ravi Shastri consolidated the team and said that this defeat shouldn’t affect the enthusiasm of the players.
He said that the players should be proud of their achievement over the last two years and this game of thirty minutes can’t erase their achievements.
The team should definitely come out of this disappointment and buckle up for the upcoming matches. After all, every day is not a victory day sometimes we need to accept failures too in order to prepare ourselves for a better future.
