    Pakistan Was in Exceptionally Brilliant Form Throughout the Tournament

    Pakistan set the tournament on fire with their massive form. The story could have been different if they could hold their nerves against New Zealand in the semi-finals. Though they dropped off from the tournament before the finals, they were the only unbeaten side in the Super 12 stage.

    India entered the tournaments as ‘favourites’ for many cricketing legends and experts. However, their campaign didn’t go up to the mark. Their one-sided defeat against Pakistan and New Zealand closed the doors to reach the knockouts even after launching comfortable wins against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia.

    Since 2012, it’s been the first time that they couldn’t make it to the knockouts. Also, with the win against Namibia, Virat Kohli’s reign as the India T-20 captain concluded, as announced by the 33-year old star batsman, earlier.
