Cricket is a Religion in India and Cricketers are like Gods!
Cricket Stadiums are Temples while Fans are Devotees!
India is a cricket-centric country where fans expect our team to win every game. However, everyone is aware of the fact that this cannot happen. A loss is always disheartening for the fans but imagine; how downhearted they must be after every loss. In a recently concluded Champions Trophy, where Men in Blue failed to win the Finals against the arch-rivals Pakistan, the whole country started criticising the team because of their poor show against them. Some spoke about the wrong team combination while some fans were unhappy with Virat Kohli’s captaincy.
Chasing around 340 in a high-pressure game would never be easy, especially when half of the side are already back to the pavilion on 54 runs. The collapse at 158 was something shocking for the Indian fans as they couldn’t overcome the loss against Pakistan, thus started criticising their own idols, who gave them some brilliant memories in this year’s Champions Trophy.
Cricket devotees should understand the fact that Kohli, as a captain, is still not experienced enough to take every decision right. Without any doubt, the Delhiite has achieved some great heights in captaincy but I think one needs to give him more time to settle down. The Chasemaster must have learnt a lot from this ‘Mega Event’ which would further help him in achieving victories. Reaching the Finals is itself a big moment for the team which should be appreciated by the country.
Now, Team India are ready to lock horns with Windies from 23rd June. Hopefully, Kohli & co. would make the full use of the Caribbean conditions.
