Indian Top Order comprising of (Rohit Sharma, Dhawan/KL Rahul, Virat Kohli) performed brilliantly during the League Stage. They, however, let down the team when it matters the most and that costed India World Cup Final berth.
Chasing a below-par score of 240 runs against New Zealand, India lost 3 crucial wickets by the end of fourth over itself. Rohit Sharma who created history with 5 Centuries in this World Cup, Virat Kohli who scored 5 half-centuries and KL Rahul who made 1 century & 2 half-centuries could manage only 1 run each. A good knock from at least one of these Top 3 Batsmen could have fetched the victory for India in Today's semi final.
During the post match presentation, Virat Kohli has rightly said 45 Minutes of bad cricket costed India a place in the ICC World Cup 2019 Final.
Ravindra Jadeja (77 runs) getting out in the 48th Over and MS Dhoni's (50 runs) Runout in the 49th Over were the two biggest turning points in the match. Had if Dhoni wasn't out, The match could have been anyone's game. Another disappointing exit for Team India in the World Cup Semis. It happened in 2015..It happened again in 2019!
