After the crushing defeat at the hands of Pakistan and then New Zealand in the T20 World Cup, the Indian team and its captain Virat Kohli have come under the target of opponents. In the World Cup match, India was defeated by Pakistan for the first time in three decades. The defeat in the midst of deteriorating Indo-Pak relations has given the opponents an opportunity to attack them. On social media, people are raising their anger against Virat, questioning his captaincy.
Pakistan stopped India’s conquest
Significantly, in the Group Two match of the ICC T20 World Cup Super 12 held in Dubai on 24 October, the Indian team suffered a crushing 10-wicket defeat against Pakistan, which led to their 29-year run against their rival. The conquest campaign also came to an end. India had won all 12 matches (seven in ODIs and five in T20Is) in the World Cup (ODIs and T20s) since 1992 till this match. India had scored 151 for the loss of seven wickets, but Pakistan started their World Cup campaign brilliantly by registering a one-sided victory with 152 for no loss in 17.5 overs.
