The Indian girls on Sunday endured a heartbreaking loss at the hands of the red hot Aussie womens who were thoroughly dominant at the night of the final. The massive expectations that the whole of India had on the women’s team were broken into pieces when they lost very badly in the finals.
A world cup final against the host nation is always going to be tricky and that too, the mighty Australians being that nation made it even more difficult for the Indian women’s team. Indian girls were confident of a win against the Aussies after beating them in the group stages but the inevitable has happened.
The former Indian opener and popular commentator Aakash Chopra never misses to express his opinion in his twitter feed now-a-days. After the agonizing defeat in the finals, the former opener has said that India lost only one game in the whole of this WT20 campaign and so is Australia and both teams lost to each other, one being the finals and the other being the tournament opener.
A fan from Pakistan had commented to the tweet reminding the 2017 champions trophy scenario to Aakash Chopra for which Aakash Chopra kicked back with a fitting reply.
The Indian international team is searching for an ICC trophy since 2014 but with no luck. The men's and women’s combined have reached almost all the knock out stages but couldn’t go on to win the trophy.
Since 2014, India finished in the top four in 11 of the 12 ICC top tier tournaments, but won the title only once.
2017 Champions Trophy
2017 Women's World cup
2018 U19 (Champions)
Out of those 12 ICC tournaments, only Prithvi Shaw's U19 team went on to become the champions. A team with high caliber and potential stumbling in the pressure situation is something that needs to be looked after by the BCCI as soon as possible.
