Following the defeat, countless fans got emotional as they shed tears, vent out their frustration on Twitter. Meanwhile, India’s vice-captain and opener Rohit Sharma had posted an emotional message on his official Twitter handle after India were knocked out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
The dashing opener who scored 648 runs with 5 centuries and a fifty to his name in this marquee event added that his heart is heavy and that he couldn’t control his emotions over the game. Rohit was also spotted crying after MS Dhoni got run out, which pretty much sums up the whole story.
In his tweet, he had clearly mentioned that they didn’t play as a team and failed to turn up when it mattered the most. He went on to add saying that they played poor cricket. Last but not least, he thanked incredible support from the Indian fans.
“We failed to deliver as a team when it mattered, 30 minutes of poor cricket & that snatched away our chance for the cup. My heart is heavy as I’m sure yours is too. The support away from home was incredible. Thank you all for painting most of UK blue wherever we played 🇮🇳,” Rohit Sharma tweeted.
