Gautam Gambhir has defended Team India after they failed to qualify for the semis of the ICC T20 World Cup. After New Zealand’s win over Afghanistan, India were knocked out of the event in the UAE.
The Men in Blue started the tournament with a defeat against arch-rivals Pakistan. If this was a setback, the next almost ended India’s campaign. The Kiwis led by Kane Williamson thumped India by 8 wickets.
While India won the next two matches against Afghanistan and Scotland but their chances had already taken a hit.
Meanwhile, Gambhir has urged the fans to back the current squad. “Don’t judge this Indian team through this World Cup, they have played some consistent cricket over the years across all countries”.
