A cricket fan in Bihar died of heart attack soon after India's shocking defeat to Sri Lanka in the World Cup while another was critical following cardiac arrest, reports said on Sunday.

Panna Lal Agrawal, a chemist in Bankebazaar in Gaya district, around 100 km from Patna, died Friday night after India lost to Sri Lanka. Agrawal was in his 50s.

Karun Kumar Pathak of the same district was admitted to hospital after a massive cardiac arrest following Team India's loss. Pathak, a village council worker in his 30s, is said to be critical.

Last week, a 17-year-old in Samastipur district died of shock after Bangladesh beat India.
