India vice-captain Rohit Sharma finally broke his silence on India’s heart-wrenching World Cup exit and spoke his heart out for the first time since India’s exit from World Cup.

The opener batsman on Thursday took to Twitter to express his anguish on India’s shocking exit from the ongoing mega event in England and Wales.

“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.)” said the 32-year-old.


Notably, India — the table-toppers — were going flawlessly in the tournament until they lost their semifinal match to New Zealand by 18 runs and got out of the contention for the coveted trophy.

Rohit Sharma had scored 5 centuries — most by any batsman in a single World Cup edition — and one half-century before the New Zealand match. He amassed 648 runs in total at an average of 81 and still tops the run chart.
