The final match of the Cricket World Cup was lost to India. The dream of the World Cup has been shattered not only for Team India but for the whole of India. But losing the World Cup shocked some people so much that two people in the country even committed suicide. There have been reports that two people allegedly committed suicide in West Bengal’s Bankura and Odisha’s Jajpur after the defeat against Australia.
