After reaching so close to World T20 finale, the Indian cricket team lost the semi-final match against West Indies March 31 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Despite Virat Kohli’s phenomenal performance, MS Dhoni’s men could not chase wickets.
Indian fans expected the team to win when the Men in Blue picked up the wickets of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels. People didn’t lose hope till the end and were waiting for Dhoni magic in the last overs. They were hoping that Dhoni will save his team like he did against Pakistan and Bangladesh.
However, West Indies played really well and took advantage of the two no-balls by India. Twitterati went crazy after the loss of Indian cricket team, but both the teams share a good rapport, so no bad blood was seen between the two.
In fact, several Bollywood celebs, including Abhishek Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Ayushmann Khurrana, Preity Zinta and Anil Kapoor, not only wished their own team for playing well, they have also congratulated the opponent team.
Take a look at the tweets here:
Ok. @imVkohli for president!!!
