Is Anushka Sharma the prime culprit in India’s defeat against Australia?

Anushka Sharma should be declared National Panauti…..; Not blaming anyone but Anushka…..; Boys have been great until yesterday. Manhoos kahikiiiiiii”; why oh why didn't Anushka have some other surgery to undergo today?

Well these are some of the hate tweets by angry Indians condemning actress Anushka Sharma as the prime culprit behind India’s loss against Australia in the all important World Cup Semi –Final. 

Among the many cricket buffs who took to tweeter and other social media in order to vocal their anguish against India’s loss in the crucial semi-final against Australia, sincerely felt that had Virat Kohli been sincere to his profession and played his natural game India would have surely won the match.

cricket buffs lambasting India’s raising talent Virat Kohli said, “India could have easily chased the total after a fiery start by Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma but alas Virat Kohil yet again failed to live up to the expectation when he was most importantly required to perform.”

Blaming Kohli’s inclination more towards his girl friend Anushka Sharma than to his county and his profession a cricket fan fuming in anger quoted, “India has lost the game only because of Virat Kohli. His obsession for his girl friend Anushka Sharma could be judged from the fact that he neither played with the bat nor was adept at fielding. He also dropped the crucial catch of Australia batsman Brad Haddin.”

Irked at hate tweets and criticism labeled upon Anushka Sharma, she responded stating that she is not responsible for Virat Kohli bad performance in Semi Final of world cup 2015. “Don’t blame over me for Virat Kohli’s bad performance he is responsible for his own field during the matches,” she said in an interview! 

True indeed! What Anushka Sharma says is right because Virat Kohli with recent stardom has lost hold on his ground. He is on sky nine blind with glitter of fame and success! 

If you don’t believe than watch the recent ‘Crash Pepsi IPL’ commercial. You will be surprised to watch that even the commercial advices Kohli to concentrate on his game rather than focus elsewhere? Hope Virat Kohli learns a lesson!!

It’s an honorable ‘Ghar Wapsi’ for Team India!

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan at the end of the thrilling Semi Final between India and Australia has rightly tweeted, “Well played Australia. Thank you to the Indian team for taking us to the semis. Hard luck and well played.”

From a sportsman’s perspective India indeed played a brilliant match against the mighty Australian team and a special kudos to captain M.S. Dhoni for yet again playing a stealer performance in a crunch match, despite key batsmen failing to perform! He kept a straight face and led his side with aplomb.

Dhoni top scored for his team with a run-a-ball 65 but it was in vain as the Indians collapsed to be all out for 233 in the 47th over, chasing Australia's daunting 7 for 328. In his statement after the match, Dhoni confided that the team crumbled under pressure.

He said that the team got a brilliant start, particularly, Shikhar Dhawan playing aggressively. However in the haste for quick runs he committed the blunder of going all out for big shots. Lamenting over the dismissal of Shikhar Dhawan, Dhoni said, “Shikhar should not have played big shots because he was scoring quite freely and with the open field, he should have just batted for a few more over.” 

"But overall, there is pressure when you're chasing 329 runs and we have seen in cricket that pressure makes you do things you don't really want to do," he confessed. 

Praising the spinners Dhoni said, “The spinners performance was good but I feel the fast bowlers could have done slightly better than the result would have been different because the score of 329 was just above par.” 

Giving no excuses for the loss captain M.S. Dhoni seemed quite contended with his team’s overall performance and applauded the boys for playing a positive cricket.

He said, “Overall, quite happy with where we were," he said. "At the start of the tournament, a lot of people didn't really think we'll come so far.” 

True indeed because from being termed as underdogs in the tournament team India has risen like a phoenix from the ashes and deserves applause.

Though team India’s impressive winning streak in World Cup 2015 came to an abrupt end breaking the hearts of billions of cricket buffs across the globe but what must be applauded is that the men in blue gave a tough battle to Australia, the team that boosts having been a three-time World Cup Champion ((1999, 2003 and 2007). It may be noted that Australia has the distinction og having played in the most final matches (six out of ten: 1975, 1987, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2007). 

In nutshell, I will conclude it’s an honorable ‘Ghar Wapsi’ for Team India!
