Watch: Rohit Sharma is seen in tears after India’s T20 World Cup knockout

The Indian cricket team has to wait a long time for its next ICC trophy as England defeated India by 10 wickets in the second semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022. The Indian players who performed well throughout the tournament were very depressed, as it will now be almost 10 years since India won the last ICC Champions Trophy title in 2013. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was seen in tears, with coach Rahul Dravid consoling him.

As the cameras panned towards the Indian dugout, the Indian players including Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, and coach Rahul Dravid were visibly disappointed. With his head bowed, Rohit Sharma was seen wiping away his tears, and coach Rahul Dravid, who looked devastated, was consoling him.

India’s 168 was never enough on the Adelaide pitch, given the conditions and England dominated as it won the toss and opted to opt in. India’s top three struggled as KL Rahul again departed early. The biggest achievement of England’s bowlers was that they kept India’s star batsman Suryakumar Yadav quiet, being dismissed for just 14 runs. In the first 10 overs India were only 62 runs and then Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya provided the much needed stability in the innings.

“A little disappointed how it went today. We batted well in the backend to get that score. We didn’t get to the mark with the ball, we weren’t up today. It’s all about handling the pressure in knockout games. All these guys have played enough to understand that,” Rohit said in the post-match presentation.

“We batted well at the back end. Not good enough with the ball, certainly not a wicket a team can chase in 17 overs. We just didn’t come to the ball,” he said.

This defeat will be more difficult to swallow as the Rohit-Dravid duo is eyeing this World Cup for the last year after India performed well in the 2021 World Cup. Last year, the Indian team pushed hard on his own, and actually won many matches even against strong teams.
