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

11 July 2019

Sachin Tendulkar lauded Jadeja for his special knock and also praised Dhoni for being the guiding force behind that seventh-wicket partnership which nearly won the game for India in Manchester.

Indian media and fans were also united in their praise for Ravindra Jadeja, whose all-round brilliance in just his second match of the tournament was not enough to lift India to Sunday's final at Lord's. "Because the kind of cricket we played in this tournament, we know where we stood as a team", Kohli added.

Indian wickets continued to fall for New Zealand throughout the innings with very little resistance offered by the Indians until MS Dhoni and Ravi Jadeja arrived at the crease in the 22nd and 30th overs respectively.

"So close, yet so far for India".

"It was a poor batting performance by the top five players".

Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli has suggested the International Cricket Council to consider changing the format of the Cricket World Cup after India's dramatic semi-final exit.

"I completely appreciate the way he played in the whole tournament". That (retirement) is his personal decision. I still feel that he has a lot of cricket left in him. The youngsters in the team still need his mentorship, " Edulji, herself a former India captain, added. Khanna too applauded the efforts of the Indian team.

"Every game throughout the round-robin was worth a couple of points so they were all important", Williamson said.

"It is easy to criticise from the outside when somebody loses and you are put on top when are winning. So they know how to put pressure because they play very consistent cricket". "Each player tried really hard but it was just not our day", Khanna said.

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.

"I'm sure he will reflect on it and he will come out stronger".
