Manchester, July 11  

In a first in the history of ODI cricket, the Indian top-three batsmen, comprising KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, ended up getting dismissed for a run each during their World Cup semi-final loss to New Zealand here.

Never before did the first three batsmen of a team got out for one run each in a match.

India’s famed top-order was blown away by New Zealand pacers, going down by 18 runs at the Old Trafford on Wednesday.

After a fine run to the semi-finals, to their horror, the Indian batsmen imploded when it mattered most.
