India lost to New Zealand in the first semifinal of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and crashed out of the cup. India had staged a brilliant comeback to revive their hopes after being reduced to 92 for 6 while chasing 239. But all hopes were up in smoke after India lost Jadeja and Dhoni.
A cricket fan in Bihar’s Kishanganj district died of a heart attack while watching the high-intensity World Cup semi-final match between India and New Zealand on Wednesday. Ashok Paswan felt breathlessness while matching the match and was taken to hospital, said Dr Devendra Kumar, a close friend of the deceased. But doctors declared him dead soon after, he said.
According to Abdul Karim, a local reporter who manages the Khabar Seemanchal Facebook page and reported the story, Kumar was watching the match at his home after finishing his duty at the Sadar hospital.
