Poor Start by Indian Cricket Team
The Poor achievable target of 127 given by New Zealand team is the lowestÂ India have ever failed to chase down in a 20-20 oversÂ game. 79 is also India’s second lowest total in T20Â internationals. This really is a Surprisingly defeat. No one could have expected this after the innings break.
New Zealand team has kept the record intact of winning all T20s against Indian Cricket team.
Indian players will have to take a deep look at how they batted Â yesterday against NZ. Most by far of it was a mix of hardness and particular insufficiency heading off to the fore. The pitch was showing hardÂ turn when New Zealand players were batting and it became a minefield when Indian team was batting. Virat Kohli and captain cool Dhoni somehowÂ kept the hope alive, for a while.
In World T20 2016 India’s campaign Â at home is already in big trouble with the Poor defeat by Kiwis. NobodyÂ sensibly will say now that they are for sure favourites against Pakistan. Then there is Australia, and of course, the unpredictable Bangladesh. Now, Mahi’s brigade must win the next three games to make their place in the semifinals. These 90 minutes have turned the world around for India.
Most of the players of Indian team confronted soft dismissals. Only Virat Kohli (26) and MS Dhoni (30) reached in the thirties but could not do much for the team. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh did not show any fight.
Now, let’s hope for good for upcoming matches.
