Occupied Kashmir celebrates as India faces defeat in cricket world cup”

As it turned out, the Kiwis posted a total of 239 runs in 50 overs after which they had very few takers in the market and the rate for hot favourite India was Rs 4.35 whereas for New Zealand it was Rs 49.

Chasing 240, Indian batters were undone by Matt Henry's brilliant opening spell as he returned figures of 3/37. But Jadeja departed after scoring a wonderful 77 and it all depended on Dhoni to see India through. India is close to my heart and a large part of me will share the pain of the players and the millions of supporters. After New Zealand's supposedly below-par performance in their innings, the punters were quite confident about India's victory but it backfired.

In what was dubbed a "moment of brilliance", Guptill collected the ball from infield and instinctively launched the ball towards the stumps, bypassing the onrushing Colin de Grandhomme anticipating the throw at the wicket.

"It was unfortunate that Jadeja got out to a ball that he could have hit for a six".

Partnering with MS Dhoni in a century-plus stand, he took India close to the target.

The 47-year-old, speaking on Star Sports' Cricket Live Show, further said that only off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was the one who followed his instructions. "Dhoni is an absolute legend".

"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". Till the time he was there, it looked like he would win the game for India. They took to the streets to celebrate India's embarrassing defeat.

The unexpected loss left a largely Indian-dominated crowd at Old Trafford disappointed, while a billion fans back home tried to come to terms with the heartbreaking end of the team's bid for a third World Cup crown.

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