India's World Cup campaign has come to an unfortunate end. The Black Caps outdid the Indian batsmen and advanced onto the finals. Ravindra Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni anchored Indian innings, but alas, they couldn't hold through till the end.

New Zealand won the match by 18 runs, bowling out Virat Kohli's team for 221. After putting up a target of 240, New Zealand's spearheads Trent Boult and Matt Henry ruffled the Indian line-up in the first ten overs and as they did, Bollywood memes started taking over the internet. Fans quoted various heartbreaking and shocking moments from various genre films to express their disappointment and anger after India exited the World Cup 2019.

India's reliant top-order batsmen, namely Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, departed after scoring one run each. Dinesh Karthik was next in line to head back to the pavilion, as he was dismissed for six runs off twenty five balls. The rest of the match saw a great partnership between Jadeja and Dhoni, but New Zealand players braved the day and conditions.

From Netflix India to Amitabh Bachchan, everyone was in on the fun during the match. See some of the best Bollywood memes inspired in the wake of India's defeat here:
