It is still hard to digest the fact for every Indian around the globe that team India has been knocked out from the race of ICC World Cup 2019 regardless of playing brilliantly throughout the series. Team India lost to New Zealand by 18 runs after restricting them to 239/8 in the rain-hit semifinal played over two days. But a bad day ruined all our hopes to bring the cup home!
Indian batsmen were left spellbound because of Matt Henry’s brilliant opening spell as he changed the game with 3\37 runs. Ravindra Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s partnership of 116 runs helped team India to get back to the game. Jadeja scored 77 runs and MS Dhoni scored 50 before he was caught short of crease by a brilliant direct hit by Martin Guptill.
An emotional post went viral on social media after team India’s defeat during the World Cup semi-finals. A photo collage was circulating on social media. It had 4 pictures out of which 3 picture shows a cameraman crying and one is a picture of MS Dhoni leaving the field after his dismissal.
The post was uploaded by the official Facebook handle of Bewakoof, the post spread like wildfire within a fraction of seconds. Well, just a bit of reverse homework was done by India Today which revealed the truth of the photo. Well, the original picture was posted by the official Twitter handle of Asian Cup back in January this year and the cameraman is identified as an Iraqi photographer.
His identity was later revealed by Steven Nabil, He wrote, Iraqi sports photographer Mohammed AL Azzawi trying to finish his work through tears after Iraq lost to Qatar in a heartbreaker. To the world soccer is a sport, to Iraqis, it’s everything.
Anyone would have felt bad after seeing MS Dhoni’s dismissal but this news is fake!
