"The roof had fallen on a cricket-obsessed nation, which stood stunned in disbelief. It was just two weeks before that painful day in Indian cricket that the same team had steamrolled the West Indies in a practice match. Nobody had expected this debacle. The media sharpened its knives. The public demanded answers. Stones were pelted at cricketers’ homes.

All this happened in the wake of India’s disastrous exit from the 2007 ODI World Cup.

After a shameful loss to minnows Bangladesh in the opening game of the tournament, India bounced back by getting the better of Bermuda in their second game. But the next task that awaited Rahul Dravid’s men was a humongous one, they had to overcome a strong Sri Lankan side in what was a must-win game.

Coach Greg Chappell resigned following India's exit, and a few months later, Dravid stepped down from captaincy as well."
