ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
World Cup: India's dream run ends, but well played India, it was just a bad day!
Millions of hearts broke down when India was today knocked out of the ICC World Cup 2015. Australia defeated India with a margin of 95 runs. In fact cricket experts smelled India's loss when Virat Kohli got out scoring just 1 run.

What went wrong? Some are of the opinion that presence of Yuvraj Singh would have made things different. In such a huge run chase, Virat Kohli and Yuvaraj are the key. Dhoni's choice over Yuvraj was Ravindra Jadeja who did an average bowling in this tournament and batted very poorly. But then we must give benefit of doubt to Dhoni. Jadeja is a superb fielder. Dhoni trusted him that he would get back like Sikhar Dhawan.

Should Indian team and the captain Dhoni be blamed for this loss? I don't think so. Before start of the tournament no one has expected that Indian team will even reach to semi-final. But the team performed superbly, played a brilliant cricket and reached semifinals without losing a game.

In the semi-final, I put both Australia and India at par. The important was to win the toss, bat first set a target in excess of 300 and win the match. Luckily Australian captain Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to bat. They set a target of 329 which was a huge target.

I think we should clap for Team India for their performance in this tournament. Had India won the toss, I am sure that it would have entered the final by defeating Australia. But never mind, it's an unlucky day, thus let's back our players.

This would be the first time after 1992 World Cup that no Asian team figures in the World Cup final!
