India lost against New Zealand and after such a long time it has lost against Pakistan. Now it has been eliminated from the tournament and can’t play in the semi finals.
The favourite team which were believed that they will enter the semi finals has been eliminated. India was a team which was considered very strong and everyone had huge expectations from it .
But the unfortunate things for the Indian team and it’s huge fan following had happened. The Indian team in the initial matches did not had huge luck and lost the toss in matches where winning the toss mattered heavily.
After losing the toss , more than half of the moral of the players was lost . In the first match against Pakistan the incredibly strong batsman Rohit Sharma was out without scoring much runs and then the match almost seemed like it is in pakistan’s side but the fabulous batting of Pakistan openers won the match without losing a single wicket.
Then it was a must win situation for india against New Zealand but india lost even that match . But after defeating Afghanistan India still had chance of qualifying if Afghanistan defeated New Zealand in the next match.
But with the help of wonderful cricket New Zealand won that match against Afghanistan and thus eliminated both India and Afghanistan from the tournament and secured it’s place in the semi finals.
Thus india has now been eliminated and Pakistan is currently at the top of the table but New Zealand can also secure that place if Pakistan lose against Scotland. What are your thoughts on India’s defeat and elimination from the tournament.
