India lost by 18 runs to the Black Caps in a rain-hit low-scoring semifinal on Wednesday 10th July. India with 15 points was on top of the league table with seven wins from nine games suffered a huge setback against the Kiwis.

Indian opener and vice-captain Rohit Sharma acknowledged that his team "failed to deliver when it mattered" in the lost World Cup semifinal clash against New Zealand, saying his "heart is heavy" after the disappointment. The right-hander amassed 648 runs in nine matches, including a world record five hundred.

Former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer believes that Rohit Sharma can lead the Indian side in 2023 World Cup. He also asked, "Is it time to hand over white ball captaincy to Rohit Sharma?"

Rohit Sharma has led Mumbai Indians to four IPL titles which are the most by any team in IPL history. India also won Nidhas Trophy and the Asia Cup last year under his captaincy.
