PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi & Bollywood Celebs Showed Their Support To Team India Despite Their Loss

India’s hopes of winning the cricket World Cup 2019 ended yesterday as the Indian team was defeated by New Zealand in the first semi-final of the tournament. Indians were among the favourites to win the tournament and it won’t be incorrect to say that they played like champions, winning all their league matches except the match against England.

The target given by the New Zealand team was 240 which was not a difficult one for team India considering the fact that they have some world-class batsmen who can chase far bigger targets than this in a comfortable manner. However, the Indian innings started badly and the first three top-order batsmen, i.e., Rohit Sharma, K L Rahul and Virat Kohli, departed when the score was just 5. Dinesh Karthik also departed soon and although Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant tried to turn the tables, they also failed.

However, two Indian batsmen who indeed need to be praised for their efforts are M S Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja. They tried their best to win the match for the country but it seems that it was a bad day for India and NZ seized the match by defeating the Indian team by 18 runs.

Social media was obviously flooded with reactions over this; while few were busy criticising the Indian players, there were many who were supporting team India despite their loss in the match. 11 Wickets started the trend of #IStandWithTeamIndia on the micro-blogging site Twitter and fans made tweets under this hashtag, showing their support towards the Indian cricketers and hailing them as champions.

Not just common public but Bollywood celebrities and politicians including the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also praised efforts of the Indian team and cheered them up after the heart-wrenching loss.
