Aakash Chopra discusses India’s sad defeat against Australia. The Ladies in Blue were unable to meet Australia’s aim, resulting in their sorrowful withdrawal.
Despite an excellent performance throughout the Women’s T20 World Cup. Team India eliminated in the semi-finals by Australia. Batting first, the Aussies set a target of 173 for the Ladies in Blue to chase, but India were unable to do so owing to the untimely departure of skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who appear to be in good rhythm.
The Women in Blue only scored 167 in 20 overs; both Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet Kaur seemed like they would lead the side to victory, but it wasn’t to be. Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer turned analyst, agreed that India’s withdrawal from the World Cup is not their day.
“So close and yet so far. Were very close. We appeared to have overcome the final obstacle this time, defeating Australia in the semi-final. We smelled triumph, but it couldn’t happen. That just wasn’t our day, “Chopra stated this in a video posted to his YouTube page.
“For starters, they gave up far too many runs. To be fair, India’s chances would have been lot better if so many runs had not been scored, since 172 was simply too much. The runs poured in the final four to five overs. Meg Lanning did not accept the honor of halting in the final over “He went on to say.

“Until the time both of them were playing, Harmanpreet Kaur began – correct, what hitting. Both were extremely fantastic. If you keep playing like this, we’ll reach the finish line sooner or later. I am confident that we will be successful one day “The 45-year-old went on to say.
