Indian cricket fans who were already in pain trying to come to terms with their team's shocking World Cup semi-final defeat to New Zealand, were left fuming when ICC posted a video of MS Dhoni's run out with animated graphics and captioned ''Hasta La Vista, Dhoni.''

Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni played cautiously and tried to save the sinking Indian side after the top order crumbled.

With 25 runs required off just 10 deliveries, India were always up against it, but when Martin Guptill ran out MS Dhoni with a deadly throw it was all but over.

The throw by Guptill sent back MS Dhoni who was Indiaโ€™s last hope in the World Cup semi-final and India were left 18 runs short of New Zealand's total of 239.

The video didnโ€™t go down well with the Indian fans and they took to Twitter to show their dissent on the distasteful tweet by the apex cricketing body.
