Indian fans are having a nightmare after openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul along with skipper Virat Kohli were dismissed for just one run, putting India in a very serious situation during the semi-final clash with New Zealand at Old Trafford, Manchester. 

Vice-captain Rohit Sharma was the first victim of the vicious New Zealand pace attack complimenting with the conditions of the pitch. Skipper Virat Kohli was the next to follow, as he fell for an LBW off Boult shortly followed by KL Rahul. The collapse of the top-order of India was seen for the first time in this tournament, as the dominant display of the batsmen has always driven India across any situations.
