Indian fans on Twitter were certainly disappointed by the Indian Cricket Teams’ performance against New Zealand in their second game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. They targetted skipper Virat Kohli for poor captaincy and inability to take important decisions in big matches as far as ICC tournaments are concerned.

Once again, Indian skipper Virat Kohli lost the toss and the Men in Blue were put in to bat first. However, the show began none different to what the spectators had already seen in the game against Pakistan. This time, the batting was even poor as the Men in Blue could manage only 110 runs in their 20 overs for the loss of 8 wickets.

Pakistan are the best team in the group so far as they have almost qualified for the semi-final of the T20 World Cup having won 3 out of 3 games so far in the tournament. Afghanistan have also registered 2 wins in the 3 matches that they have played so far. New Zealand have also opened their account in the tournament with a win over India.

Team India’s Poor Run In ICC Events Continues

The poor run of the Men in Blue in ICC events has been a point of massive concern in the Indian cricketing fraternity over the last 5-6t years. This was the reason MS Dhoni was appointed as the Mentor of the India National Cricket Team ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 but he seems to have no control over the team decisions.

Virat Kohli’s captaincy in clutch games has been a question mark in the ICC events and it seems nothing has changed. Virat has already announced that he will be stepping down as the T20 captain after the T20 World Cup. The entire coaching staff is also due to change after the World Cup and a fresh leadership group might bear the fruits for the Men in Blue in the T20 World Cup next year in Australia.
