Indian fans had to witness their team lose a fifth ICC final in 10 years. It was a tough pill to swallow as India were the best team throughout the tournament, annihilating every opponent they faced en route to the finals.

Die-hard Indian fans voiced their support for the Indian players on social media and the Prime Minister also heaped praise on them.

"Dear Team India, Your talent and determination through the World Cup was noteworthy. You've played with great spirit and brought immense pride to the nation. We stand with you today and always," the 73-year-old wrote.
