Even as India bowed out of World Cup 2019 after its heartbreaking loss to New Zealand (by 18 runs) in the first WC'19 semi-final, prominent personalities from the fields of sports, politics and cinema, besides fans, took to Twitter to show Team India how the nation treasures them.

Despite half-centuries from Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni, India were all out for 221 runs in 49.3 overs.

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli could score just one run each. Dhoni and Jadeja added over 100 runs for the seventh wicket to keep Team India in the chase. However, the duo got out in quick succession. India couldn't recover from there onwards and, eventually, fell 18 runs short of their target.

Dhoni and Jadeja, who played out of their skins to bring India back from the dead, won a lot of praise. Jadeja tweeted to thank his fans and said that he would give his best until his last breath.
