Twitter users have a field day after Indian cricket team suffered a dramatic collapse against New Zealand in the first semi-final of Cricket World Cup 2019 at Manchester's Old Trafford on Wednesday. 

New Zealand put up a modest target of 240 after opting to bat first in a game that was pushed to the reserve day as it was halted on Tuesday due to rains. 

Chasing the target, India lost three crucial wickets in the first five overs as key batsmen Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul all depart for one run each. 

Soon after that, Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant also lost their wickets. 

New Zealand pacemen Trent Boult and Matt Henry displayed a brilliant bowling show. Henry took three wickets and Boult got one wicket.  

Spinner Mitchell Santner struck twice and dismissed Hardik Pandya and Pant. 

India are struggling in the match at this moment but Twitter users have flooded the social forums with some hilarious posts. 

Here are some of them!
