Team India fell narrowly short on Wednesday as the second day of the World Cup semifinal at Manchester's Old Trafford against New Zealand witnessed the Kiwis come out on top by 18 runs. They had resumed batting at 211/5 in 46.1 overs after rain had interrupted them on Tuesday and set India a target of 240 to win. India were bowled out for 221 with 3 balls to play.
Reacting on the same, director Karan Johar took to his Twitter handle and wrote a heartfelt message for Team India. He said he doesn't want to sound like an old uncle but maybe 'nazar lag gayi'. Read his full tweet below -
