Anushka, who was in attendance at the Sydney Cricket Ground during India's World Cup semifinal against Australia, was blamed for Kohli's failure in the match
AB and his team may have lost the World Cup — but their gratitude for the support they received wasn't just limited to a post-match 'thanks for the support' quote
It would have been easy to apply band-aid solutions wherever and whenever New Zealand faced trouble.
Kohli, along with his actress girlfriend Anushka Sharma, and five players besides Team Director Ravi Shastri, touched down at the Mumbai International Airport.
India’s cricket fans have rightly recognised the magnificent effort their team put in to get to the semi-finals
Dhoni's sudden retirement from Test cricket robbed India and Kohli of a chance to learn from his experience
The 2015 world cup was different from the others in many ways. First, the fans were not desperate for a win. Over the past six years, MS Dhoni and his men had won almost every ICC trophy on offer—the World Cup, T-20, Champion’s Trophy. In the mind of the satiated fan, there was no desperation for proving yet again that their team is among the best. That argument was sealed some years ago.
On Thursday, the spectacle of angry protesters decrying the team was back on the streets yet again.
Dhoni has been the bridge between a golden generation that ended up winning the crown in 2011 and a youth brigade that reached the semi-finals in 2015.
Dhoni feels that this core group of bowlers should be nurtured by the BCCI with utmost care their respective state associations shouldn't pester them for playing in the Ranji Trophy.
A staunch critic of the ICC's four-fielder theory which has led to regular run-riots in one-dayers, India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni feels the current rule should be changed as it heavily favours batsmen.
The disappointment of a semifinal exit notwithstanding, BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya today congratulated the Indian cricket team for its "stupendous" World Cup performance, saying that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men put up an outstanding show.
Angry Cricket supporters burn the posters of Indian team as the team lost to Australia in the World Cup semi final clash, in Agartala on Thursday.
All said and done, 2003 was a tournament to cherish for India. Despite what happened in Sydney, 2015 should be too. Given little chance after a barren Australian summer, the team did little wrong till it came up against opponents who are now favourites to lift the trophy. There is absolutely no shame in that.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni refused to give an indication whether he will retire from one-day cricket after his team lost the World Cup semi-final to Australia.
Steve Smith's golden summer just keeps on getting better. Australia's new run-scoring machine just can't seem to do any wrong and now he's off to the World Cup final.
"Losing to New Zealand gave us a kick up the backside. We worked on the areas we needed to," Clarke added.
Michael Clarke was speaking with the media after Australia beat India to make the World Cup final.
Kohli scored just one run as India were thrashed by Australia by 95 runs in the second semifinal of the cricket World Cup at the SCG.
India lost to a much better team and once they let the co-hosts score 328, the dice was heavily loaded against Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men.
