A guy who is hiding his face when his very team is on the verge of getting out of this T20 World Cup. He predicted India being 0-5 vs in Test series 2021. How does he manage to survive even after so much insult? https://t.co/fOfstZnSii— Aditya Gupta (@adityassm08) November 1, 2021

Dreams of team India winning the T20 world cup for the second time shattered after the Kohli led team faced a humiliating loss in their match against New Zealand. Cricket experts, fans, former cricketers and many others has been expressing their displeasure over the team which was expected to win the tournament.
India was put to bat by New Zealand after winning the toss. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan opened for team India and Rohit Sharma came in as a one down batsman. None of these top order batsmen including Kohli and Pant played with 100 plus strike rate. As a result, the team was able to score just 110 runs in the 20 overs.
New Zealand effortlessly chased down the score in 14.3 overs and Sodhi was named as Man of the match for his bowling performance. “To be brutal upfront, I don’t think we were brave enough with bat/ball. We obviously didn’t have much to play with the ball. We were just not brave enough in our body language when we entered the field and NZ had better intensity, body language. Every time we took a chance, we lost a wicket. It’s most often a result of hesitation of whether you should go for a shot or not” Captain Virat Kohli said in the post match presentation.
