New Zealand defeated India by 18 runs in the World Cup 2019 semi-final at Old Trafford in Manchester on Wednesday. With the win, New Zealand has booked their place in the final of World Cup 2019. India were left scrambling to chase down the 240 target New Zealand set them the day before when Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were all dismissed for just one run each.

“We failed to deliver as a team when it mattered, 30 minutes of poor cricket yesterday & 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 (sic),” Rohit Sharma wrote on Twitter.

 

Virat Kohli admitted New Zealand were deserved winnings against India and said their dramatic 18-run defeat in the World Cup semi-final is “hard to take”.

Rohit Sharma’s reactions from the dressing room during the semi-final went viral on social media as the India vice-captain was gutted after losing his wicket early. When Ravindra Jadeja got to his fifty, Rohit rose up from his seat and signalled to the all-rounder to keep going in the tense chase.

West Bengal: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has reiterated that the country is going through a period of “Super Emergency” and called on people to protect the rights and freedom guaranteed by the Constitution.

On the International Day of Democracy today (Sunday), let us once again pledge to safeguard the constitutional values our country was founded on. In this era of ‘Super Emergency’, we must do all it takes to protect the rights and freedoms that our Constitution guarantees,” she tweeted.

The Trinamool Congress supremo has time and again said that the country is going through ‘Super Emergency’ under the BJP-led NDA rule at the Centre.

The United Nations General Assembly had in 2007 resolved to observe 15 September every year as the International Day of Democracy to uphold and promote the principles of democracy.

Ms Banerjee has opposed multiple central schemes, including the steep new traffic fines and the Citizens’ list, saying neither will be implemented in Bengal.

She also attacked PM Modi over his visit to the space research agency ISRO to watch the planned touchdown of the Vikram lander on moon.

“Suddenly, today he (Narendra Modi) has gone there (at the ISRO headquarters in Bangalore) … Now for the next four days the issue of Chandrayaan will continue to dominate. As if they (the BJP) have done everything in the country. (As if) they have invented science …” she was quoted as saying by news agency Press Trust of India.
