Cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar has extended his support towards in-form Indian opener Rohit Sharma. India were knocked out of the tournament after losing the semi-finals to New Zealand by 18 runs in Manchester. Rohit is the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 648 runs. The elegant batsman hit five tons in the league stages.

Tendulkar extends his support towards gutted Rohit Sharma

Clearly, he was gutted as India failed to advance to the finals. Rohit was dismissed for one. Skipper Virat Kohli and KL Rahul too, failed to get off to starts as India were 24/4 at one stage. Tendulkar came out in support of the fellow Mumbaikar.

“He [Rohit Sharma] must be feeling terrible and so bad about the way we have ended this WC. It’s something which he will take quite some time to overcome because this is a huge disappointment. I feel bad for him,” Sachin Tendulkar told India Today.

India were found wanting against the Kiwis

After restricting the opposition to 239/8 in 50 Overs, fans and experts expected India to put on a clinical show. Instead, the Kiwi bowlers made life miserable for the Indian batters. Ravindra Jadeja hit a gutsy 77 while MS Dhoni perished scoring 50. India were one of the favorites to lift the World Cup. They finished on top of the table at the end of the leage stage encounters. The men in blue won six of their eight games, losing the tie against England and sharing a point each with the Kiwis.

“It is a tough time for everyone, we have expectations and dreams. All I can say is its been a tough day. How bad they must be feeling in the dressing room. I fully agree that we should have chased 240. 10 out of 10 times we would have taken that,” he concluded.
