Our best chance to win a WC man. Everything was going right. Will never get another opportunity like this again.

India will win when it is the most unexpected of them

I felt the same.. but then Rain and Dhoni run out tells me that this was our destiny... I am for some reason ok with this outcome.. it needed God's intervention to throw us out of the cup.. and i am glad it happened against NZ and not any other team.. 

 

and i hope NZ wins the cup..

It's only a game. You win some you loose some. On paper India should win world cup with even second 11. I feel India should have beat England which was possible and today could have beaten Pakistan.

Absolutely. Looked like the stars had aligned. Topping the group. No Eng in the semi. Did not have to play a mad T20 game last night. All the time in the world today to chase 240 but just blew the game in the first 10 overs. Won't get this kind of opportunity again. 

 

It' just sad and a waste of another tournament that should have been won.

Yes. We never had a bowler like Bumrah in our entire cricket history. We still lost despite him in prime form. We don't know what would happen to him after 4 yrs. If we can't win world cup with peak Rohit, Kohli and Bumrah, perhaps we never will.

Yes but still this WC we had a lot of things going right for us.

True. The only issue was middle order. And that bit us with all possible bad luck and rain. I know you hate dhoni with all your guts and situation was tough. But the guptill run out, I could not believe my eyes. Such luck at such a crucial time.18 runs in an neesham over, could have been a small chance.

Don’t think it would have made a difference. You still had to see off Ferguson and his 4 deliveries. What Killed was Dhoni not putting loose balls away with Jadeja at the other end. That put unnecessary pressure on him.

I switched off at 5-3 and didn't bother to get much heartbreaks looking at train wrecks of DK, Pant brain fades, Dhoni tormenting with dots and singles and causing the wickets of Pandya, Jadeja. Went for a long refreshing morning walk, did household chores, cooked breakfast and meditated. No gutting over a mere game, will go cheer India the next game if Dhoni is not playing.

You know this loss doesn't because we deserved it, especially as Brat backed Dhongi due to non cricketing reasons!

If they win they deserve it, you are no one to decide who deserves it or not, winning knockout games is not easy, if the win the final they are deserving winners.. Nz winning the cup will give a huge boost to cricket in nz

They are already world champion for decades in one sport though!! Wish we dominated cricket like that.

The reason this feels more bad bcoz in 2015 semi finals and 2017 CT finals, we knew we will loose bcoz we were chasing huge totals. But never in my dreams I thought we wont chase 240 here. Last night I was all dreaming about the finals on coming sunday and what our strategy should be etc. :((

I kinda expected a top order collapse because of two reasons -

one : they have not had one in this world cup

two : Rain + NZ is always a success story.. they are the opposite of SA.. cloudy conditions favor their bowling too.. they beat SA in 2015 SF and now today, both in rainy conditions.

Nah, nz should win, it is best for cricket

The best team should win, NZ depend on several factors going their way to win.... If England were in similar position us to they would have blown NZ away....  NZ does not deserve the world cup... 2015 yes... they played very good ... not this year.

What hurts most is we had the team to win.But lost out due to sheer poor long term planning and one trick pony strategy with no plan B.(top 3 or bust)And we lost to an inferior team.

We needed a psychologist like mike horn in 2011 for these mentally weak characters like kuldeep and rahul.

Hope now england wins the cup.They are deserving and i don't want another aussie victory at any cost.

While losing this semi final sucks - it would have been far more painful had we lost to Eng/Aus. NZ is probably the most like-able team - I actually want them to win the World Cup. I think ODI cricket needs a new champion.

They are liked because of pity not because of skill.

Well I bet now nobody is liking them out of pity - they flipping knocked out India out of the World Cup. And there is nothing to pity a team that has reached the World Cup finals twice in a row now.

 

Anyway - the camera was on Kane Williamson's face after they won the game - and the guy is so incredibly calm. As I said I like this New Zealand side. They did not indulge in any 'in your face' celebrations. 

 

As I said my personal preference is for the Kiwis to win.

Time to salvage some pride by winning the T20 WC next year.   Although it's t20, it's a WC nevertheless.     Winning it will heal atleast half of our wounds.  

Little chance of that happening under the current regime. They will pick test players for the T20 format. Expect Rahane to return.

Although certainly disappointed, my money was on England to win it all, from the start. It did waver off a bit after the loss to Australia, but after they beat India, i backed them to go all the way. And they would have completely deserved it as well. They’ve been the best limited overs side in the last 2 years, have beaten every country and have reinvented the game with positive aggressive cricket. They also have a home World Cup at the home of cricket and they’ve never won it before as well. Go England

lol was lucky in 3 games. dropped and missing run-out chances. Should have only got 2 hundreds max. He ran out of luck today. He never had good technique that's why sucks in test cricket.
