World T20: Twitterati goes gaga over West Indies win, also praises India

Title aspirants India were on Sunday knocked out of the ICC World Twenty20 with a heartbreaking seven-wicket defeat at the hands of West Indies, who capitalised on the home team's sloppy bowling display in a high-scoring semifinal showdown here.

Put into bat, India rode on in-form Virat Kohli's blazing unbeaten 47-ball 89 to notch up a challenging 192 for two, but the spirited Caribbean chased down the total and made the final with two balls to spare, leaving the capacity crowd at the Wankhede Stadium completely stunned.

India had themselves to blame for the debacle as they made costly blunders while bowling and allowed Lendle Simmons three lives. Simmons, playing for the first time in the tournament in place of injured Andre Fletcher, made full use of the lives to smash his way to a scintillating unbeaten 82 off 51 balls.
