In the 3rd Ball of the 49th Over, Dhoni called for two after pushing the ball to the off side but he least expected Martin Guptill who had a disastrous World Cup to emerge as a hero with a direct hit aiming at a single stump. Mr.Cool was caught just inches short of the crease and that moment costed the final berth.
Every Indian who watched Dhoni reach the pavilion knew what he was going through at that moment. Rohit Sharma who was cheering for every run scored by his teammates was left heart-broken with Dhoni's run out. Several Indian Spectators were spotted in tears. All the Indians who were watching the live match could feel the pain and they could only say this shouldn't have happened.
