Virat Kohli reacts to criticism after Indias World Cup exit

Kane Williamson says New Zealand deserve their place in the final four at the World Cup

Aamir Khan pictured with Virat Kohli. The Virat Kohli-led India were one of the pre-tournament favourites and did justice to their reputation barring the semi-finals where one bad day in the office ended their dreams.

Apart from the fans, the legend of Indian music Industry Lata Mangeshkar has also urged MS Dhoni to not retire.

Having an insanely prolific top-order comprising of Dhawan, Rohit and Kohli might be the envy of many global sides but it brings with it a recipe for disaster as seen in the Champions Trophy and now the World Cup semi-final.

Kohli lauded Ravindra Jadeja's valiant knock of 77 that gave New Zealand a scare.

Rumours have been abound that the World Cup exit could bring the curtain down on the illustrious career that MS Dhoni has had. Either way, I am so happy that New Zealand have come to the final and if they face Australia, it means there will be the traditional trans-Tasman rivalry, so that will be an exciting game. That shows the kind of control they bowled with and they put the fielders in the right positions and that was a flawless spell of fast bowling with the new ball, which really put us under a lot of pressure. "The stage was set for Dhoni", Laxman said. "I think they really deserve to go all the way", added Jitesh. "The way they played after the loss of four wickets rather, was quite commendable".

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

New Zealand beat India to reach World Cup final
But Kane Williamson's side posted 239-8 after batting first on a tricky pitch and then defended the total with some excellent fast bowling.

Dhoni has endured a mixed World Cup, with a number of his innings drawing criticism from the fans and former cricketers.

"At the halfway stage, we wanted 240-250 and we knew we would be competitive if we got that because the surface played the way it did".

The unexpected loss left a largely Indian-dominated crowd at Old Trafford disappointed, while a billion fans back home tried to come to terms with the heartbreaking end of the team's bid for a third World Cup crown.

"You finish No. 1 in the table and then a spell of bad cricket and then you are out of the tournament completely".

"To bowl as outstandingly as they did in a high-pressure game makes victory over India one of New Zealand's best ever one-day performances", Vettori wrote in his column for the International Cricket Council. "So there are many things that we can take back as positives".
