Indian boys played their hearts out: CK Khanna on India's semi-final defeat

After India crashed out of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup following a close defeat against New Zealand in the semi-final, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) acting president CK Khanna on Thursday lauded Virat Kohli and boys for playing their hearts out throughout the marquee event.

Chasing the target of 240 runs which seemed moderate initially, India made a worst possible start as they collapsed to 5/3 inside 3.1 overs. However,wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni (50) and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja(77) stitched a crucial partnership of 116 runs to bring the Men in Blue closer to the victory, only to see their side eventually bundled out for 221 inside49.3 overs.

Talking after India's 18-run defeat at the Old Trafford in Manchester, Khanna said that each player of the Virat Kohli-led side tried their level best against NewZealand, but it was just not their day.
