The first semi-final of cricket World Cup 2019 between India and New Zealand started yesterday but unfortunately, it was stopped due to rains. The match got resumed today as it is the reserve day and New Zealand managed to put up a score of 239/8 in the stipulated 50 overs.
The Indian cricket fans were quite excited today as the target given by New Zealand is certainly an easy one for team India considering the top form of Indian batsmen, especially Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. However, things turned ugly when Indian opener Rohit Sharma got out for just 1 run and he was soon followed by Indian skipper Virat Kohli who also scored only 1 run. Situation deteriorated further when K L Rahul also departed and India’s score was 5 at the loss of 3 wickets.
There was an environment of panic among the Indian fans and some took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to express their opinions. Some online users are desperately missing the Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan who has been ruled out of the World Cup due to an injury while several others are hoping that former Indian skipper M S Dhoni will do wonders today and few are requesting rain to arrive on the field.
Here are some of the hilarious reactions:
