After two unfortunate debacles, the certainty of the Men In Blue journey to the final seems dubious. But if there is will, there always will be a way.
It was just yesterday when the Indian fans’ hearts sank after the last shot by the Sri Lankan batter with the announcement of India’s defeat by a pretty young Team Sri Lanka. Rohit Sharma’s squad had lost by six wickets.
It was the third match at the Super Four level in the on-going Asia Cup in Dubai. The Dubai International Cricket Stadium after the contest left India helplessly dependent on the results of the other teams to qualify for the ambitious final.
On the last Super Sunday against the arch-rivals Pakistan National Cricket squad, Team India lost their opener of the Super 4 round. The not too heavy score of 182 runs could not be touched and the 5 wickets defeat became another historical date with the nightmare.
Still there was easy hope for the Indians to enter into final by beating Sri Lanka but in vain. The lacklustre attitude towards the timely delivery of responsibility created an unforgivable date.
The Indian squad now needs to await the results of upcoming matches of the tournament to go their way for achieving the place into the final of the marquee tournament.
