ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
ICC World Cup: Indian fans don't get disappointed, "Men in Blue" played well but Kangaroos were better
Indian cricket supporters are disappointed over the defeat of India against Australia in the ICC World Cup 2015. Victory and defeat are very common in games, so one should take it easily. Every Indian should feel proud of the Indian cricket players who fought for the country till they got defeated in the semi-final match against Aussies, who performed better.

No doubt it was a sad day for Indian cricket, Indian players as well as cricket fans. In sports nobody can predict the result. Against the expectations and desires of crores of Indians, 'Men in Blue' could not get birth in the final. 

Every Indian cricket fan should take this defeat in a very sporting manner. We should always keep in our mind that no player or no team can win continuously.

The Indian Cricket team under the able leadership of Dhoni could not continue the performance it had shown in the last seven matches. Bowlers failed to perform in an impressive manner and later the batsmen too failed. 

The hosts played well and gave a challenging target of 328 runs. Indeed it was a tough task for a team chasing such a big score and that to in a pressure filled semifinal match. Moreover the pitch was not bouncy and could not cooperate with any of the Indian pacers.

Hence Australian players managed to get massive runs on the scoreboard. Especially in the last four overs they got more than thirty runs, which brought Indians into immense pressure. No one expected that the last three overs would prove a curse for team India.

Asutralian players Finch and Smith, who scored a brilliant century, kept their team in a winning streak. If any batsman from Indian side could had made a century that would have changed the situation. Captain cool Dhoni managed to do a little justice to his innings along with the opener Dhawan. 

Failure of Kohli and Suresh Raina pushed the team under huge pressure that ultimately resulted into the defeat, otherwise it would have been a nail-biting contest. Even if the one Indian batsmen among could had supported Dhoni with a century, definitely it would have been an exciting match.

After loosing the grip in the tri-series Indians tremendously picked up the rhythm,  continued with it till semis. Though we were defeated by Australians in semis but we should be happy as it happened in semis and before that our team won the seven consecutive matches with a superb performance.
