Indeed, even Bollywood joined to hail the performance of the Indian group.
‘Thank you #IndianCricketTeam for your game & your efforts. You played very well. You bind us together. You bring out the Indian in us. In fact, You bring out the tricolor in us. You will always be our Heroes. We love you.’ read Anupam Kher’s post.
‘Always feels disappointed when you play such a good cricket and then 45 minutes of bad cricket puts you out of the tournament. It is difficult to accept and difficult to come to terms with,’ Kohli said.
‘Credit to New Zealand bowlers. They were great with the new ball and extraordinary with the sort of territories they hit and the sort of swing they got from the surface. The manner in which they bowled in the first half hour of our run pursue was what had the effect. I think it was the skill level on display and that made life difficult for our batsmen,’ he added.
