- Indian team farewell to the T20 World Cup
- New Zealand in semifinals after defeating Afghanistan
WC T20The Indian team is out of the T20 World Cup. Following Sunday’s game between New Zealand and Afghanistan, the name of the fourth team that will advance to the semi-finals has also been decided. With this, the career of the Indian team in this World Cup ended and the drought of winning the T20 World Cup, which has been going on for 14 years, remains intact.
Three Sundays are heavy for the Indian team in the T20 World Cup. Because those results have come in these three Sundays, which laid the foundations for the Indian team’s exit from the tournament.
The Indian team played their first match in Super-12 against Pakistan, which was on Sunday. The India team was defeated in it, then the India team took a week off and played a match against New Zealand next Sunday, in which the India team also lost.
Now, the match that was played between Afghanistan and New Zealand also happened on Sunday. The Indian team was expected to reach the semi-finals in this match, but the result was not in favor of the Indian team. Afghanistan lost the match and New Zealand reached the semi-finals.
• October 24 – Sunday – Pakistan beat India by 10 wickets
• October 31 – Sunday – New Zealand beat India by 8 wickets
• November 7 – Sunday Day – New Zealand beat Afghanistan by 8 wickets (India out of the tournament)
However, the meeting of the days is just a kind of coincidence. The reason for the India team’s exit from the tournament was the poor performance in the first two matches. The Indian team lost matches to Pakistan and New Zealand by such a large margin that it was difficult to return to the tournament. This was the reason why the Indian team dropped out of this tournament.
