It’s been a disappointing season for Team India for sure. Across different formats, India wasn’t crossing the finish line and the hurdle against all these in recent times is Australia. It all started with the World Test Championship. India lost to Australia in the finals of the WTC 2021-23.
After that, a big heartbreak, which was hard to handle for the crores of Cricket fans across India came at the ODI World Cup. India started the finals as the hot favorite but succumbed to pressure. Australia won the ODI World Cup 2023. Now before we are completely out of the memories of it, India had a fresh heartbreak.
India U-19 team in the World Cup were the hot favorites and the unbeaten team so far. However, Australia handled the pressure situations better. India lost the U-19 World Cup final by 79 runs. With the three heartbreaks in quick time, India needs to assess why the teams are not able to cross the finish line. It’s been a while since India won an ICC event.
