Fans, experts dejected after India knocked out from T20 World Cup
- Team India are knocked out of the T20 World Cup
- New Zealand defeated Afghanistan by eight wickets
- India play Namibia on Sunday
Reactions poured in from the dejected Indian cricket team fans after Virat Kohli and company were knocked out of the T20 World Cup. Experts including former cricketer Virender Sehwag and Irfan Pathan posted memes with a 'sigh' on Twitter.
Team India's semi-finals fate lay on the match between Afghanistan and New Zealand. For Virat Kohli and company to move to the next stage the Kiwis should have lost. But Kane Williamson's men won the game by eight wickets.
Reacting to India getting getting knocked out, Wasim Jaffer tweeted 'Sigh', whereas former all-rounder Irfan Pathan said 'Next time better planning'.
Here are some reactions:
India will play Namibia on Sunday. But after Afghanistan's loss, the result on the game is inconsequential. Virat Kohli and company were outplayed in its first two Super 12 matches by Pakistan and New Zealand, which proved to be its undoing. The side did bounce back for wins over Afghanistan and Scotland but the damage done by the previous two defeats was far too much.
Kane Williamson's men, who won four of their five Super 12 matches, will be up against either England or Australia in the semifinals.
The Black Caps chased down a small target of 125 with 11 balls to spare to secure a top-2 finish in Group 2 with eight points from five matches. The win also sent India out of the tournament.
