Cycle shop owner Srikanta Maity, aged 33, died due to heart attack in his shop immediately after MS Dhoni got run out on Wednesday. He was watching the match on his phone.
“We rushed to his help on hearing a loud thud. We saw him lying unconscious on the floor. We took him to Khanakul hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival,” said Sachin Ghosh, a sweet shop owner in the area.
On Wednesday, India's worst fears came true as the Indian cricket team suffered a top-order collapse during their chase of 240 at the Old Trafford in Manchester, thus losing the match by 18 runs.
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni did give their all and played superb knocks of 77 and 50 respectively. However, their outstanding effort was not sufficient as Team India faltered for the second consecutive time at the semi-final stage of the World Cup.
