Close to the finish of the semi-last against New Zealand, with India still in with an opportunity, a horde of some 400-500 fans cheered and moved at each huge hit on an extra-large screen at an amphitheater encompassed by workplaces in Gurgaon outside Delhi.
In any case, when Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India’s warhorse, was fantastically run out by Martin Guptill’s immediate hit to pursue Ravindra Jadeja back to the structure, the fans realized the game was in the same class as finished and most excited, crushed.
“We are feeling dismal, and you can see me, I have a craving for crying,” said office laborer Neeraj Singh, crying, after New Zealand’s sensational 18-run win. “We adore Team India, we cherish Kohli, we adore Mahi [MS Dhoni] and always we will love cricket. What’s more, similar to our supervisor Kohli has stated, Dhoni will everlastingly be our chief in our souls,” he said.
Individual fan Prabhdeep Singh said that after India lost early wickets, including that of skipper Virat Kohli to diminish the double-cross bosses to 24 for four, Dhoni and Jadeja had given them any expectation of triumph.
“We were supposing we will get the World Cup, however, how might I say, we are feeling terrible and pitiful now,” he said.
Jayati Arora, another office specialist, concurred. “Toward the begin [of the match] I didn’t figure India would win however then our expectations were expanding. Be that as it may, at the last we lost the match, so I feel extremely low and dismal.”
