I believe that India can win the T20 World Cup: Virender Sehwag

The T20 World Cup 2021 has been an eventful affair so far. The fans have been all raring to watch the action unfold in the mega event. However, in the middle of the ongoing tournament, a fan asked former India cricketer Virender Sehwag who he thinks will clinch the title this year. Sehwag is always super active across his social media platforms. The former batter never shies away from expressing his opinions on the game. Thus, whilst answering the question of the fan, Sehwag was quick enough to back the Virat Kohli-led side in the marquee event. He pinned his hopes on team India to lift the trophy this year and also asked the people to support the team at times of defeat.India only have to play better cricket here onwards: Virender Sehwag“According to me, it’s Team India who will win this T20 World Cup. They’ll only have to play better cricket here onwards. We always cheer for our team when it wins but when it loses we have to support it even more. So, I believe that India can win the T20 World Cup,” Sehwag said in his latest episode of Virugiri Dot Com on Instagram. View this post on InstagramA post shared by Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag)Team India did not have a positive start to their t20 worldcup campaign. The team locked horns with Pakistan in their opening fixture. Although Men in Blue entered the competition as favorites to win considering their record against Pakistan in ICC events, the team faced defeat by ten wickets. The Babar Azam-led side exuded some great character to break India’s 12 matches winning streak and registered a thumping victory. Shaheen Shah Afridi was clinical with the ball as he sent back both the openers early on. Chasing down the target of 152, Pakistan’s openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan played belligerent knocks to take the team past the victory. India's next mission is against New Zealand. Both sides have lost their previous encounters with Pakistan and will be keen on getting to winning ways. It will be a crucial match for both teams as a loss here will affect their chances of reaching the semi-finals.Also Read- Neeraj Chopra, Ravi Dahiya, Lovlina Borgohain among 11 recommended for Khel Ratnas

Warner tries to recreate Cristiano Ronaldo Coke bottle moment in PC

Australian opener David Warner tried to recreate the ‘Cristiano Ronaldo Coke bottle moment’ in the post-match press conference after the match between Australia and Sri Lanka. Ronaldo had removed the Coke bottles from his table in the press conference earlier this year, and this resulted in a loss of $4 Billion for Coca Cola. Warner tried to do the same, but was asked to put the Coke bottles back on the table. In fact, Warner even asked whether he needs to put the Coke bottles back as well. The 35-year-old also cheekily stated ‘If it is good enough for Cristiano, it is good enough for me’..@davidwarner31 trying to be @Cristiano “if it’s good enough for Cristiano, it’s good enough for me” pic.twitter.com/Nyc7NfyKEs— Thakur (@hassam_sajjad) October 28, 2021David Warner’s superb half-century helps Australia trounce Sri LankaIn the encounter between Australia and Sri Lanka in t20 worldcup on October 28, 2021, Sri Lanka scored a decent total of 154/6 on the scoreboard. In reply, David Warner was in red hot form with the willow and scored a whirlwind 65 off 42 deliveries at the top of the order to help Australia breeze past the target with 7 wickets and 3 overs to spare. The left-handed batting dynamite struck 10 fours in his enterprising innings. Apart from Warner, Australian captain Aaron Finch and veteran hitter Steven Smith have also contributed useful runs. While Finch scored an impressive 23 balls 37, Smith stayed till the end and helped himself to a patient 28*. David Warner is one of the best hitters to ever play for the Australian team in the T20I format of the game. Warner is currently the second top scorer for the Australian team's in T20I cricket and has plundered 2344 runs in 83 innings at an average of 31.67 and a strike rate of close to 140. Warner has also scored 1 hundred and 19 fifties in T20I cricket as well. Warner will next take the field for the Australian side on 30th October 2021, when the kangaroos clash against their arch-rivals England at the Dubai International Cricket StadiumAlso Read- I believe that India can win the T20 World Cup: Virender Sehwag

T20 World Cup: India look to end campaign on winning note

  • Nov 08, 2021

India will look to end their underwhelming T20 World Cup 2021 campaign on a high when they take on Namibia in the final league game on Monday. Coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli would also eye a winning end to a significant chapter in the history of Indian cricket, as Shastri and Kohli are stepping down as the head coach and T20I captain after this tournament. Against Namibia, they will surely like to win it big and skipper Kohli would do a world of good if he allows the likes of Rahul Chahar to get a game and gives Ishan Kishan another go. The senior players would gain precious little against the David Wiese's of the world save for beefing up their individual statistics. Very rarely has an Indian team played such an inconsequential game at an ICC event since its last league game in the 1992 World Cup against South Africa after already being out of the race for the semi-finals. It is not the first time that India is out of a global tournament before the last four stages, but it was not at all frustrating when one can clearly read the writing on the wall. The two losses to Pakistan and New Zealand -in which they got outplayed - had already put India on the exit path. From there, it was more of a battle pitching hope against hope and it eventually all came crashing with New Zealand's eight-wicket win over Afghanistan. And that is something that will hurt Shastri, a proud man, who has done his bit to make this a formidable all-condition Test team with a lethal fast bowling attack. Their fabulous term saw India achieve the pinnacle of Test cricket glory with back-to-back series wins in Australia, a near-win on the recent tour of England, three dominating seasons at home and a phenomenal run up to the semifinals of the 2019 ICC 50-over World Cup. This campaign also brings an end to the four-year stint of head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar, who have decided to move on. For Kohli, who is all set to even lose his ODI captaincy in the coming days, this wasn't how he would have liked to end his T20 captaincy stint with the national team having already quit IPL captaincy. It is also the first time since the 2013 Champions Trophy that an Indian men's team has failed to reach at least the semi-final stage of an ICC event. They were champions in the 50 over Champions Trophy in 2013, followed by runners-up finish in T20 World Cup in 2014. In the 2015 ODI World Cup, the team lost in the semifinals. The 2016 t20worldcup saw them reach the last four stage while they lost to Pakistan in the 2017 final of the 50-over Champions Trophy. In 2019, his ODI World Cup campaign ended in the semi-finals, and the two-year Test World Championship also ended in a final defeat. A combination of factors led to this debacle and if Kohli's poor captaincy and selection is one factor, the problems were certainly compounded by players like Hardik Pandya, who didnt reveal the full extent of their fitness status to the national selectors. However, these fatigue-levels notwithstanding, the team faltered on multiple fronts too. Shreyas Iyer and Yuzvendra Chahal's non-selection, uncertainty about who'll open, an unplanned middle-order and not having a game plan with an in-form Shardul Thakur in focus could've been aspects for the indian cricketer to look at. cricket india will take the flight back home and begin their journey to the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup under new head coach and a new captain on a fresh note. Namibia have managed to beat only Scotland so far in their Super 12 engagements after making the tournament-proper for the first time in the T20 format. Teams:India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Rahul Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy, Shardul Thakur Namibia: Namibia: Gerhard Erasmus (c), Stephen Baard, Karl Birkenstock. Michau du Preez, Jan Frylinck, Zane Green, Nicol Lofie-Eaton, Bernard Scholtz, Ben Shikongo, JJ Smit, Ruben Trumpelmann, Michael van Lingen, David Wiese, Craig Williams and Pikky Ya France.Also Read- Babar Azam Becomes First Captain To Score 3 Fifties In T20 World Cup
