India easily defeated Afghanistan, Scotland, and Namibia in their next three matches, however, the stars were not aligned in the group stage, as Pakistan and New Zealand made no mistakes and advanced to the tournament’s final four. Sourav Ganguly, a former India captain and current BCCI president, described India’s performance in the recently finished T20 World Cup 2021 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman as the “worst” he has seen “in the last four-five years.” India did not go to the knockout stages of the T20 World Cup. After losing to Pakistan and New Zealand at the Super 12 stage, their chances were harmed. To advance for the semi-finals, the Virat Kohli-led team had to rely on the run rate and the results of other matches, which did not happen.

I believe this is the worst of anything I’ve seen in the previous four or five years, “said the former captain of the Indian cricket team.“I’m not sure why, but I just felt they didn’t have enough freedom to compete in this World Cup.” Sometimes you just get stuck in big tournaments, and when I saw them play against Pakistan and New Zealand, I just felt like this was a squad that was only performing at 15% of their potential. “And sometimes you can’t pinpoint why something happened,” he explained.

Pakistan defeated India by ten wickets, while New Zealand beat them by eight wickets. The former opening batsman did not point to any specific cause for India’s poor performance in the ICC event with live cricket score, but said that the team did not play to its
