New Zealand Skipper Kane Williamson won the toss yesterday and elected to bat first in this semi-final match of the tournament. However, the excess rain at Manchester interrupted the play which was carried forward today in the reserve day. The Indian team were successful in restricting the stalwart players of the Black Caps to a chase-able total of 239.

However, the Indian batting line-up crumbled in the very beginning of their innings and the top three batsmen were sent back to the pavilion after mere one runs. Indian opener, Rohit Sharma who has been in an extraordinary form in the tournament played four deliveries before losing his wicket to Matt Henry. Skipper, Virat Kohli has been in a consistent form throughout the World Cup, however, in this big clash, lost his wicket to Trent Bout and scored only a run. Dinesh Kartik, who comes to bat in at number four, took 25 deliveries to score 6 runs got out to Matt Henry.

This collapse of the Indian batting; turned all the attention towards the former Skipper, MS Dhoni in order to keep the team’s hope alive in the game. However, the fans were curious of the decision of sending Hardik Pandya ahead of Dhoni and the twitter blew up. Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant have managed to provide the team a much needed stability in the middle after the quick fall of wickets in the beginning. Rishabh Pant played a solid innings in the middle and scored 32 runs of 56 balls before getting out to Mitchell Santner and India lost their fifth wicket.

Let’s have a look at few of the tweets.
