Amid intense speculation that MS Dhoni may retire from global cricket after India's exit from World Cup after losing to New Zealand in the semi-final on Wednesday, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar today urged the cricketer to not even think about it. The New Zealand new-ball bowlers bowled brilliantly and exploited the overcast conditions to the fullest as they deflated India's chase of 240 removing Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the space of the first four overs.

Boult and Henry shared five wickets while spinner Mitchell Santner claimed two in a tight display to snuff out India's hopes.

The defeat to New Zealand in yesterday's semi-final came after a top-order batting collapse had left them teetering at 24-4.

"I don't think that I would like to break things down immediately", said Kohli.
