Pakistan minister calls former Indian skipper MS Dhoni match-fixer, biased cricketer

Pakistan minister calls former Indian skipper MS Dhoni match-fixer, biased cricketer”

Boult and Henry shared five wickets while spinner Mitchell Santner claimed two in a tight display to snuff out India's hopes.

Their efforts lauded on social media, the team were also congratulated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who said he was proud of the way they played during their run at the World Cup, which also saw them wrest the world No. 1 ranking from England.

Acknowledging the fighting spirit displayed until the last overs despite suffering early setbacks in terms of losing its top batsmen, the Indian cricket team has received a pat on the back for the die-hard spirit shown in the cricket world cup semi-final match against New Zealand.

The tweet read, "Dhoni you deserved such disgraceful exit for polluting the gentleman's game with fixing and bias!"

Kohli admitted that India had clearly not been ready for the challenge presented by New Zealand's seamers, who had been given a total of 239 to defend after adding a further 28 runs to their overnight 211 for 5.

Watch Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar speaking exclusively to India Today on team India's semi-final defeat to New Zealand in Manchester.

"We've played outstanding cricket throughout this tournament". "India played brilliant cricket in the league phase. You make errors, you make decisions which are not right at that time and you have to accept it".

For those into risk analysis and birds, New Zealand was always going to be a tough customer as a harbinger of a "black swan", or an event that comes as a surprise - and as this editorial amply provides an example of - an event that is rationalised in hindsight.

"Because many players will not be able to process it". He did not hide his disappointment.

"We are sad, but we are not, you know, devastated because of the kind of cricket that we played in this tournament. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavours".

Rohit can bee seen gesturing to Jadeja "you're strong".

That sentiment was mirrored by many back home too.
