Dhoni’s run out devastated the fans in the stadium as there was a pin drop silence in Manchester crowd. The two day international world cup semi finals match went in favours of the black caps due to the top order collapse for the first time in this world cup. Three of the top order batsmen scored just 1 run and got out while chasing just 240 runs in 50 overs.
kane Williamson’s brilliant captaincy was lauded all over the Internet. When India struggled at one point and seemed to lose the match by large margin, it was Ravindra Jadeja and Dhoni’s partnership which kept the hopes of billions alive.
Jadeja played the knock of his life time and got out while trying for a big one in Boult’s over. Dhoni who has done it for many time as Sourav Ganguly in the commentary said got run out by Martin Guptil’s sharp direct hit throw. That moment shattered the dreams of Indian people’s dream about the world cup.
Now it has been alleged that the delivery in which Dhoni got out is an illegal one as there were 6 fielders outside the 30 yard circle. Only 5 fielders are allowed to be outside the 30 yard circle during bowling powerplay.
Check out the reactions from fans here :
Issue is not the fact that there would anyway have been a run out off a no ball. Had Guptill been the fielder inside the circle Dhoni may not have gone for the 2nd run.

However Dhoni’s run out in a no ball due to field placement error is legal, Fans stating that Dhoni would not have taken the risk if Guptil was inside the circle and he would let Bhuvaneshwar Kumar to take a single in the free hit to keep strike.
