"Don't Even Think About Retirement", Lata Mangeshkar Urges MS Dhoni

Kashmir Media Service reported that after India's dream of winning the World Cup was shattered by New Zealand, residents of Srinagar could not hide their joy. It was New Zealand's attack on Team India which led to the top four batsmen (Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik) go back to the pavilion.

Partnering with MS Dhoni in a century-plus stand, he took India close to the target. Eventually, it became a too tough a task to complete as India fell short by 18 runs.

Twitterati also went into overdrive following the Men in Blue loss with users trolling Indian team's captain Virat Kohli saying: "Kohli tujhse nahin hota chase". Most tactical decisions include an element of risk - they don't always succeed - but as long as the best people are making the choices for the right reasons then supporters and commentators should be careful with their criticism, especially if it is made with the advantage of retrospect, Kallis added.

Besides his contribution with the bat, Jadeja also chipped in with a wicket and bowled a highly economical 10-over spell of 1/34 on Tuesday, before the Manchester rain came down. "That's the nature of the tournament, one bad day at this stage and you are out of this tournament".

The cricketer-turned-commentator, who had called Jadeja a "bits and pieces player", had excluded him from his playing XI against the Kiwis for the semifinals, was trolled heavily on the social media.

"So close, yet so far for India".

"But whatever happens it's going to be a great occasion, and the Black Caps can go into that game with a lot of confidence behind them".

New Zealand will play the victor of the other semi-final between Australia and England that takes place on Thursday at Edgbaston.
