India’s dream of winning the ICC trophy was once again unfulfilled. India has not won a single ICC trophy since 2013. After making it to the WTC final for the second time in a row, fans were hopeful that the Indian team would end their 10-year exile from winning the ICC trophy. However, Australia defeated India by 209 runs and dashed the hopes of India and the fans. BCCI President Roger Binny gave a big reaction after India’s defeat. He also expressed his displeasure.
Roger Binny, who went to watch the WTC final at London’s K Oval ground, reacted to the media after India’s defeat. At this time, he said, “We lost on the first day of this match. A big partnership between Head and Smith from Australia created a big gap between the two teams in the match. If you remove this partnership from the game, you will find the match completely even.”
Speaking further, Binny said, “Even after this defeat, we should not let our confidence go down. We have a lot of big tournaments ahead of us in the future, including the ODI World Cup at home. We have to consistently prepare well for this.”
India’s poor performance in the final
The Indian team performed poorly in all departments in the WTC finals. In bowling where the Indian team allowed Australia to build a mountain of 469 runs. Also, in batting, India were bowled out for just 296 runs in the first innings. This gave Australia a first innings lead of 173 runs.
If there is one positive thing left in this match for the Indian team, it is the incredible performance of Ajinkya Rahane. He top scored with 89 runs in the first innings and 46 runs in the second innings. On the strength of Rahane’s first innings runs, the Indian team managed to avoid the follow-on.
