Wins and losses part of life, says PM after India lose to NZ by 18 runs

Agency News

New Delhi, Jul 10: As India made exit from the ICC World Cup 2019 after being thrashed by New Zealand by 18 runs on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to twitter saying wins and loses are a part of life.

''A disappointing result, but good to see #TeamIndia’s fighting spirit till the very end. India batted, bowled, fielded well throughout the tournament, of which we are very proud. Wins and losses are a part of life. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavours,'' PM tweeted.

Chasing 240 for a place in the final, India were off to a horrific start as they lost their top-three batsmen inside four overs and from there none of the batsmen except Ravindra Jadega and MS Dhoni could stay on the crease but eventually, men in Blue ended up in losing against New Zealand in the semi-final by 18 runs at the Old Trafford on Wednesday.

With the win, New Zealand have booked their place in the final of World Cup 2019. (UNI)
