The legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar discussed India’s humbling 10-wicket loss to England in the 2022 T20 World Cup semifinals at the Adelaide Oval. With a crushing victory, the Jos Buttler team ended India’s hopes of capturing the trophy for the first time in 15 years.
Attributing the failure to the batting unit, Tendulkar claimed that the total of 168 was simply insufficient on a short-side boundary surface like Adelaide. Tendulkar said that the team had recorded a score of at least 190.
Team India’s ambitions were dashed after they were humiliated by England in the semifinals. As he responded forcefully to the criticism, Sachin Tendulkar made it clear that he is not a big fan of it.
Team India lost another opportunity to take home an ICC trophy, continuing their unwanted nine-year trophy drought. This Indian side, captained by IPL winner Rohit Sharma, and led by head coach Rahul Dravid, was picked to win the Cup when they travelled to Australia for the T20 World Cup.
But a humiliating loss to England in the semifinals put an end to their dreams, and there was a backlash of criticism that batting star Sachin Tendulkar is not much in favor of. He responded forcefully to the naysayers.
Before Hardik Pandya’s scorching 63, which helped India reach 168 for six, the top order appeared uninspired in their approach. With just 16 overs and 10 wickets left in the chase, England’s opening batsmen Alex Hales and Jos Buttler responded by displaying no mercy for the Indian spinners and ending India’s prospects of even making it to the championship match with a record stand.
168 on the Adelaide surface was never enough, Sachin said in an interview with ANI, admitting that India’s performance was “disappointing.”
“I am aware of how discouraging the semifinal matchup with England was. Let’s admit that our performance wasn’t particularly outstanding. Due to the extremely short side boundaries and drastically varied field dimensions of Adelaide Oval, 168 is not a great number. In addition, it was difficult for us to acquire wickets. It was a painful and discouraging defeat, despite our best efforts “He commented.
In contrast, he encouraged the team to make a strong return in response to all the criticism levelled at Team India after their elimination from the T20 World Cup on Thursday night.
Becoming the best in your field takes time. The team needs to play solid cricket consistently, which it has. Please don’t judge our team on this performance. The athletes didn’t want to take a chance and fail. In athletics, these ups and downs are typical. We must work together if we want to succeed, he declared.
Although India is ranked as the top side in the ICC T20I rankings, Tendulkar advised fans to evaluate the team as a whole. The 2011 World Cup champion explained that attaining that position requires years of dependable cricket play and advised supporters to keep together during trying times.
Since we are the top-ranked T20 squad in the world, let’s refrain from judging our team just on this performance. It takes time to develop. You need to consistently play good cricket, which is what the team has done. By no means am I trying to imply that performances like those versus England are acceptable.
