He was watching the match on his smartphone. 


A sweet shop owner in the same area, who took him to the hospital, said: 

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.

India were reduced to 92 for 6 before MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja took India close with a solid 106-run stand. 

Dhoni’s run out was the final blow, which forced the second loss for team India in the World Cup, ultimately ending their journey.
