Team India lost heartbreakingly to Australia in the Women’s T20 World Cup semifinals after an amazing performance throughout the tournament. Australia, who batted first, gave the Women in Blue a target of 173, which they were unable to reach owing to the unfortunate departure of skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who appeared to be in good rhythm.
Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet Kaur both seemed like they would carry the team to victory, but it was ultimately not possible as the Women in Blue only managed to score 167 in 20 overs. Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer turned analyst, agreed that India’s withdrawal from the World Cup did not make it their day.
“So close yet so far away. We came so very near. This time, it appeared that we would overcome the last obstacle to defeat Australia in the semifinal. The scent of victory was in the air, yet it was impossible. Our day did not come, “In a video posted to his YouTube page, Chopra remarked.
“First of all, they gave up way too many runs. Let’s be honest; 172 was just a little bit too many runs, and India’s chances would have been lot better had they not been scored. In the last four or five overs, runs just kept coming. Meg Lanning chose not to halt in the previous round, “Added he.
Aakash Chopra thinks that team India’s heyday is just around the corner.
Despite the defeat, Chopra is confident that India’s glory days are not too far off given the manner the squad battled back against the formidable Australians. In his YouTube channel, he also discussed the subject.
“Even though it appeared impossible to catch up after 172 runs were scored, our girls fought valiantly. When Yastika Bhatia, who entered at No. 3, and the two openers left the game early, Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues were present “Chopra stated.
“The way Harmanpreet Kaur started playing—proper, what hitting—was actually how they both played up to that point. Both were outstanding in every way. If you continue to play this way, we will eventually cross the finish line. I really believe that we will prevail in the end “Said the 45-year-old.
