‘Getting to No. 1 doesn’t happen overnight’: Batting Legend Sachin Tendulkar on India’s emphatic defeat against England

India's overall performance in the tournament was commendable

ICC T20 World Cup: Veteran former Indian batter Sachin Tendulkar backed the Men in Blue after the disappointing 10-wicket defeat against England in the semi-final of the marquee tournament. He highlighted that the loss was very disgruntling but the number one team of the shortest format should not be degraded for their below-par performance in one match.

Underlining the potential of the team, he added that the top rank can only be attained if a side plays good cricket over a prolonged period.

Speaking to ANI Sachin Tendulkar said

“It was a tough game for us, 170 for no loss….that’s a bad defeat. Rather disappointing,” Tendulkar said in a recent video to ANI. But also, let’s not judge our team only by this performance because we have been world number one T20 side as well. To get to that number one spot, it does not happen overnight. You have to play good cricket over a period of time and that is what the team has done.”

The former India captain further added, “By no means I’m trying to say that these performances are okay, players also did not want to go out and fail. But every day it doesn’t happen. In sport, these ups and downs are there. It cannot be that victory is ours and losses are theirs. We have to be in it together.”

India’s overall performance in the tournament

While top knocks by Jos Buttler and Alex Hales crushed India’s dream for the second T20 title. Notably, the Indian team’s overall performance was commendable.

With the star batter Virat Kohli scoring 296 runs in 6 innings, is still the highest run-scorer of the tournament. Moreover, Suryakumar Yadav’s quick succession of runs and form makes him an asset for his side. Additionally, young-gun Arshdeep Singh certainly left an impeccable mark with his par performance in his maiden T20 World Cup. Other than that, Hardik Pandya played his part as the all-rounder quite impressively, scoring 128 runs and eight wickets.
