A die-hard Kolkata cricket fan expired on the spot after MS Dhoni was run-out, which led to India's exit from the World Cup in the first semi-final clash against New Zealand on Wednesday in Manchester. Cycle shop owner Srikanta Maity, 33-years-old, collapsed while watching the match on his phone in his shop after the former captain was dismissed.
"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," Sachin Ghosh, a sweet shop owner in the area told The Times of India.
