In his post-match interview, current India captain Virat Kohli announced that Dhoni had not informed his teammates of any decision he had taken regarding his future career.

"So all these guys have a lot of pride and passion to play for their country and they are the ones who feel the most disappointed when a mistake happens".

Fans in New Zealand stayed up into the early hours of Thursday watching the India innings unfold, with the country's Sports Minister Grant Robertson providing a running commentary on his Twitter feed. But it was too late in the day as the top-order collapse came to haunt India at the end.

Tendulkar also went on to say that the way New Zealand played the game was commendable.

"All those first three wickets, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, were outstanding global wicket-taking deliveries and got rid of players who were in brilliant form", he added.

The Men in Blue, however, could muster only 221 runs before they were completely skittled out by New Zealand bowlers, as a result of which they bowed out of the competition. He nearly won the match alongside Dhoni and his all-round performance was brilliant for the entire match. Kiwi captain Kane Williamson's workmanlike knock of 67 off 95 may not have been as precious as it turned out to be if India was allowed to be India in terms of its batting prowess during their innings.

"That's been a great part of the tournament in my opinion that everyone's had an opportunity to dominate at some point".

"That's why when they were batting they didn't play the big shots as they knew they only had their two main batsmen in Williamson and Ross Taylor, they just wanted to hang around".

Srikkanth feels Indian batsmen should have been more aggressive in their approach against left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner, who returned with impressive figures of 2/34. Jadeja's valiant 77 of 59 balls not only proved that he was more than a bits-and-pieces player, but also infused new energy into the Indian chase. The Kiwi bowlers kept bowling a tight line and that finally saw Pandya lose his cool and try a hoick over mid-wicket.

He added: "But you have to accept it". I think these things can come into consideration, looking at the magnitude of this tournament. Faced with a tough chase, a brittle middle order did us in.

"We started out with the ball and just tried to create pressure".
