Indian Actor Ajay Devgn, on the micro-blogging site Twitter, shared a post in the form of a letter, saying, “Dear Team India, cheering for you as you put your heart and soul into converting the dreams of an entire nation into reality has always been a fantastic experience. Though your journey to the finals was cut short, we enjoyed every bit of it. I cannot imagine the pressure each of you guys experienced with the eyes of the nation watching you.”

Motivating the Indian team, he further added, “Winning or losing is a part of the sport. Both results are inevitable. But we stand with you. Through thick and thin, ups and downs, we are here to stand with the best team in the world. Chin up, guys! We will come back stronger and better than ever.”

The defeat against England was extremely painful to watch because India could not take a single wicket. England won the game by 10 wickets, leaving Skipper Rohit Sharma a bit teary-eyed after the match in the dugout. Coach Rahul Dravid later consoled him.

Former India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar also consolidated team India in the post below.
