It was an entertaining affair when tournament favourites India took on West Indies in the second Semi Final of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2016. After being put in to bat first, India, riding on Kohli’s heroics, posted a total of 192 for the loss of 2 wickets.

However, much to the disappointment Indian cricket fans, West Indies chased it down with 2 balls to spare. A brilliant knock of 82 and 52 by Simmons and Johnson Charles respectively and a couple of no balls by Indian bowlers sealed the deal.

With runs flowing, the match was a cracker to watch. And as Ravi Shastri would put it, “Cricket is the real winner”.

This is how Twitter reacted after the match.
