India were the firm favourites to beat New Zealand in the first semifinal of World Cup 2019. The way the World Cup had panned out, not many would have thought that New Zealand would beat India. India had finished the group stage at the top of the points table while New Zealand had finished at fourth. However, the past results went for a toss as New Zealand stunned the Men in Blue by 18 runs.

India looked favourites to progress through after restricting New Zealand to a modest 239 for 8. India’s hopes were up in smoke right at the beginning of their innings when they were reduced to 5 for 3. Matt Henry and Trent Boult rocked India’s top-order in no time. While Henry sent back KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, Boult accounted for Virat Kohli.

India soon found themselves 4 down for 24 and then 6 down for 92. The game looked very much over at that moment before Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni revived India’s hopes. The two mixed caution with aggression to keep India in hunt. However, they were out at crucial junctures and India were eventually all out for 221. Both Jadeja and Dhoni scored fighting fifties but their efforts were not just enough to take India across the line.

Unsurprisingly, the entire cricket-obsessed nation was gripped with disappointment over the loss. However, there were some fans in Kashmir who bizarrely celebrated the loss. They burnt crackers in the middle of road and celebrated India’s exit from the World Cup. They danced and celebrated as they made the beautiful valley look like anything but not an Indian territory.

The men were also raising pro-Pakistan slogans during their celebration. Pakistan had bowed out of the competition at the group stage due to poor net run-rate.
