India vs New Zealand: As India loses the semi-final against New Zealand at the Old Trafford, Manchester by 18 runs in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the nation is upset and sad. Meanwhile, a man died in West Bengal as he collapsed in his shop moments after Indian wicketkeeper MS Dhoni got run out by Martin Guptill at the stage where India needed 25 runs off just 10 balls. The deceased has been identified as Srikanta Maity, a cycle shop owner who died after MS Dhoni went back to the pavilion.

Srikanta was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead. Meanwhile, another native shop owner Sachin Ghosh stated that they rushed Srikanta to the hospital after they heard a loud voice. He stated that he was lying unconscious on the floor. We took Srikanta to the Khanakul hospital, West Bengal, where he was declared brought dead, said, Sachin Ghosh. India lost the early wickets while chasing 240 runs, but the opener Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and number 3 batsman and Indian Skipper Virat Kohli collapsed at just 1-1 runs each. Afterwards, Rishabh Panth and Dinesh Karthik tried their best to take back the team on the track, but Karthik fell.

Likewise, Hardik Pandya came, and both Hardik and Karthik went back to pavilion. Then, it was Ravindra Jadeja, the star player whose efforts were the reason why India could make it to the end along with the MS Dhoni, with whom hope was alive.
