ICC T20 World Cup 2021: Virender Sehwag Sums Up Twitter’s Feelings After New Zealand Beats Afghanistan

[ad_1]

So, Indian cricket Twitter is not okay. After reviving from the brutal blows of defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand, back-to-back and winning matches against Afghanistan and Scotland, again back-to-back. However, the ticket to the semi final was still elusive and hanging by the thread because the Virat Kohli-led team needed Afghanistan to win over New Zealand in order to make it to the semis. But, as yesterday turned out, the black caps booked their spot in the world cup by beating Afghanistan by 8 wickets in their last super 12 stage group match of the tournament. All thanks to an unbeaten 68-run partnership between skipper Kane Williamson (40*) and Devon Conway (36*).

So, even though the men in blue have one more game left in the tournament against Namibia today, they have followed Afghanistan and have seen themselves out of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. That and the prayers that Indian fans raised fell onto deaf ears, in support of Afghanistan, hoping for India’s miraculous way in. Obviously, that didn’t happen and now Twitter is busy memeing the pain away including former-cricketer Virender Sehwag who summed up the feelings of the nation in one single tweet.

And he isn’t the only one. Disappointed fans have poured themselves and their grief into creative, self-deprecating memes and can you blame them? See for yourself.

Earlier, many on social media had reacted to India’s embarrassing performance in the early stages of the tournament which ultimately cost them the semis. So much so that they demanded a ban on IPL, the money-making machine alleging that the format is often given more importance by BCCI over international formats. Could this be the reason behind the team’s dried up efforts? The jury is still out on that.
