5 Reasons responsible for India’s dismal performance in T20 World Cup

Men in Blue were absolute favorites to win the ongoing T20 World Cup title but two bad matches against Pakistan and Black Caps dismantled all their hopes of reaching the semifinal round of the marquee event. The campaign has been devastating for India and Virat Kohli who was leading Men in Blue for one last time in a T20 outing. There is a very simple rule in Sports, if a team wins skipper receive all appreciation and if they lose captain is at the receiving end.

Let’s reveal five reasons responsible for India’s dismal performance in the ongoing T20 World Cup in detail.

  1. Kl Rahul is a class player and someone who was in sublime form in the recently concluded season of IPL 2021 where he hit 30 sixes but he failed miserably in the first two games for India against teams like Pakistan and New Zealand which mattered the most and also his opening partner Rohit Sharma failed too on both occasions.
  2. The gap between the IPL second leg and the main event of the ICC T20 World Cup was just 2 days which clearly indicates that players were tired and this is the biggest reason for their disappointment in the mega event.
  3. In the first two matches, which India lost against Men in Green and Black Caps, our ace bowlers including the likes of Bumrah and Shami couldn’t dent opposition batters.
  4. Virat Kohli’s captaincy needs to be questioned as he was unable to field right X1 against Pakistan and New Zealand as someone like Ashwin and Chahar didn’t play in those crucial matches when it was needed for Men in Blue.
  5. Appointing MS Dhoni as a mentor for the ongoing T20 World Cup has backfired completely for India as there is a popular saying in English “Too many cooks can spoil the broth”.
