Nothing is going right for team India in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup. First, they lost to Pakistan in their opening game, ending their 12-match winning streak, and later suffered a crushing loss to New Zealand to receive a massive bump to their 20-20 World Cup campaign. Before the showpiece event, all the experts and critics backed India as the favourites to win the trophy but now the tables have turned and the Men in Blue are staring down the barrel.

Two back-to-back losses have also disappointed the Indian fans, who were pinning hopes on the team to finally end the trophy drought in the 20-20 World Cup. Few of the former cricketers sympathized with the team, while a few others decided to mock the Men in Blue.

Leading the charge was former England cricketer Michael Vaughan who took to his official Twitter account and criticized India’s slow batting saying that India are playing cricket from the 2010s.

Former England opener Nick Compton too jumped into the bandwagon and took a sarcastic dig at Kohli and said the team will thrash Namibia on Monday (November 8) and bow out of the event on a high. This will be Kohli’s last assignment as the T20I skipper as he will step down post the showpiece event.

Compton didn’t miss this golden opportunity and took a dig at Kohli by saying, “For Kohli’s last game in charge I predict a resounding victory against Namibia on the 8th November,” presumably pointing out the fact that India failed to beat big teams like Pakistan and New Zealand in the Group Stage.

 

This tweet by Compton didn’t go too nicely with the Indian fans who hit back at the former England opener.
