The Indian was on the back foot since they conceded a heavy defeat at the hands of Aussies, who thrashed them in their first Super Eight match. It was not going to be easy for the Indian team to recover from that defeat, but still, they defeated Pakistan convincingly. Another convincing performance was required to be showcased when they took on Proteas, as it was matter of run rate, not just a victory, but the Indian team failed to thrash South Africa, which also led to their exit.
In the last match, many blamed Rohit Sharma for India's exit before semis. The reporters also put up the same question but Shukla was quick to deny it as the reason for failure. When the team was required to play aggressive cricket to win by a big margin, Rohit scored 25 runs from 27 balls and conceded 13 runs from his single over.
