ICC World Cup 2019 has not ended yet, but the journey of Team India surely has. Well, fans of the men in blue expected India to win the semi-final match against New Zealand, but it turned out to be otherwise, unfortunately. At the start of the cricket battle, India lost four wickets back-to-back and with it also some of the best batsmen the team has. After such a debacle, all hope was on the former captain cool MS Dhoni, who tried his best to hit fours and sixes, but unfortunately could not drag India towards victory.
That being said, India lost to the Kiwis by 18 runs and yes as an Indian it's heartbreaking that we could not make it to the finals. India's exit from the ongoing World Cup 2019 did churn some hilarious memes on the web, but there were a few celebs who lent their support towards team India after the loss. Right from PM of India, Narendra Modi to actors like Aamir Khan, Varun Dhawan, stars made it a point to laud the Indian cricket team's efforts in the WC'19.
