India’s pathetic batting show in WTC final evokes sharp reactions as fans call Teamindia chokers
The much-celebrated Indian team looked out of sorts in the WTC final and though their bowlers put up a stellar show in the New Zealand first innings their batting flattered to deceive. There was a lack of application and proper technique from the Indian batsmen who looked woefully ill-equipped to handle the moving ball. This coupled with some shocking shot selection especially by Rahane in the first innings and Pant in the 2nd innings made the humiliation complete.
What was equally shocking was the batting of the Indian lower order. Which has become a bone of contention for the Indian batting for the last few years. Here in the final the last 4 wickets fell for 12 runs in the first innings and for 14 runs in the 2nd innings. Opposition teams are now aware that once they get through the top six of Indian batting, the bottom half folds up quickly.
Also, it is a drawback for the Indian bowling which struggles to wipe off the tail of the other team’s batting lineup which invariably puts more pressure on the team.
Above all , this was another failure by an Indian team in an ICC event final prompting. The experts and the fans to add the chokers tag with this Indian team.
Let us look at some sharp twitter reactions of fans with chokers tag following India’s poor loss.
