India’s chances of winning the T20 World Cup a second time were thrashed by England on Thursday.
The Men in Blue posted 168/6 in 20 overs which Jos Buttler and Alex Hales achieved successfully with 24 balls remaining.
It is a rather humiliating exit for the Men in Blue who were so close yet so far.
Team India had a rather uninspired performance throughout the tournament and former Pakistani pacer, Shoaib Akhtar tore apart Rohit Sharma and Co. after their performance at Adelaide.
India don’t have express fast bowlers or impactful spinners. They had a confusing selection. Their pacers can perform if conditions suit them. Lekin very disappointing performance from India. India doesn’t deserve to meet us in MCG, or allowed to take a flight to come to Melbourne, because unki cricket aaj expose huyi hai.
Adding further, Akhtar said,
What’s so big in reaching semis? There were 4 good teams in total. You beat Netherlands and Zimbabwe, nothing big. India need to look at their leadership, management needs to take accountability. It was a confusing selection.
India have not won a single ICC trophy since 2013 and their last ICC trophy is the Champions Trophy which they won under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
The Indian team have always failed to perform in pressure matches because of which they have been knocked out by better teams.
The only exception was the T20 World Cup of 2021 where India had to exit from the group stage itself.
