India, after giving a tough fight to New Zealand in the semi final, bid goodbye to ICC World Cup 2019. Yesterday’s match was disrupted by rain and today, on the reserve day, the match resumed from where it ended last evening. New Zealand put up a total of 239 runs in 50 overs and the Men in Blue fought hard to chase the score. However, New Zealand edged over India by 18 runs to secure their place in the final.
Though sad, fans are not holding back and praising the Indian cricket team for all their efforts. There are those who are showering praise on ace player Ravindra Jadeja on his wonderful performance.
“Well played Jadeja!” wrote a Twitter user. “Well played #TeamIndia, tough luck in the end..Thanks for a wonderful #CWC19,” tweeted another.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi too took to Twitter to congratulate the team.
A disappointing result, but good to see #TeamIndia’s fighting spirit till the very end.
India batted, bowled, fielded well throughout the tournament, of which we are very proud.
Wins and losses are a part of life. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavours. #INDvsNZ
