Deemed as favourites for the title, team India failed to make it to the semifinals of the 20-20 World Cup. They were officially knocked out of the tournament after New Zealand defeated Afghanistan by 8 wickets. Earlier, the team had lost their matches against Pakistan and New Zealand to fall behind the race for the knockouts. The team will now look to end the tournament on a high against Namibia. The match will be the last game for Virat Kohli as India skipper. It will also mark the end of head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar’s term with team India.

Meanwhile, former India cricketers have reacted to India’s early exit from the 20-20 World Cup. Virender Sehwag shared a rib-tickling meme to sum up India’s campaign in the 20-20 World Cup.

Former cricketer Harbhajan Singh congratulated New Zealand for booking a spot in the semifinals. Harbhajan wrote, “Well done @BLACKCAPS for getting into the semis. You guys deserve it. How good is Kane Williamson wah.. love this man and his NZ team.. I know India isn’t going forward, no worries we will get better and come back stronger @BCCI.”

Former speedster Venkatesh Prasad wrote that India didn’t play to their potential and the early exit will hurt the team for a while.

Meanwhile, fans were also not behind and brought a meme fest on Twitter.

 

England will take on New Zealand for the first semifinal on November 10, while Australia have been booked against Pakistan for November 11.
