In the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, India had to face defeat for the second time in a row. On Sunday, a match was played between India and New Zealand at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai. New Zealand defeated India by eight wickets in this match.

Batting first, India scored 110 runs for the loss of seven wickets. On the other hand, New Zealand’s team, which came in response, achieved this goal very easily by losing two wickets. After getting the second consecutive defeat, Indian team captain Virat Kohli appeared disappointed. He said after the match that we could not perform well with bat and ball.

Virat Kohli said that “It was very strange. I mean I think we have to be very honest, very cruel. I don’t think we were able to show enough courage with the bat or the ball. I mean with the ball. We didn’t have a lot to play for but when we got on the field we didn’t have enough courage in our body language and New Zealand had better intensity, better body language. They put pressure on us from the first over and kept going. We lost wickets whenever we took a chance. It happens in T20 cricket, but it is a bit doubtful when you think whether you should go for a shot or not.

Virat Kohli said that “When you play for the Indian cricket team, you have a lot of expectations, everyone knows not only the fans but the players themselves. Wherever we play, We are seen. People come to stadiums to support us, so there is always something more to do with our games. This thing has to be accepted by all players and learn how to face it. When you face it If you do then as a team you will be able to overcome the pressure and tough situations and we could not do in these two matches, so we did not win.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to field. Kane Williamson’s decision was proved right by the New Zealand bowlers, as he kept the Indian batsmen tied from the beginning. Along with this, wickets were also taken from time to time, as a result of which the Indian team could score only 110 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs. At the same time, the target was easily achieved by the New Zealand team with 33 balls remaining for the loss of two wickets.
