Some losses hurt, but the defeat like India’s humiliating crush out of the T20 World Cup 2022 after being thrashed by England, is like a dagger going through the heart.
The defeat in the semifinals against England will rankle Rohit Sharma and the men in blue for a very, very long time. The poor batting despite a bevy of superstars, could hardly propel India past 168. While fans were confident of Virat and Suryakumar Yadav’s heroics and expected a clash between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup Finals, the crushing defeat has left cricket lovers in shock.
While the Australia trip was going well for the Men in Blue, the defeat in semifinals is hard to digest. Now, team India is coming back to the country after the humiliating defeat.

A user noted, “God of cricket for a reason,” while another user tagged him as the ‘international crush’.
An individual wrote, “Truly a global ambassador for Sports inspiring across borders. Once-in-a-generation player.”
As far as the T20 cricket goes, India needs batters who can dominate the bowling from the word go and have the right attitude to match up to the fast-evolving world of T20 cricket. They also need bowlers who have the variety and ample backing to excel.
