ICC T20 World Cup
BCCI to review India's performance
Normally the BCCI doesn't comment on India's performance, but this time things look different, as its president has told newsmen that the performance of team in the tournament would be reviewed.

THE EXIT of Indian team from the T20 World Cup has not only disappointed fans, but it seems selectors are also aghast at their crashing out of the tournament in the Super Eight stage. In fact, the Indian team after winning the inaugural edition in 2007 has not performed well in the past 3 editions, including the current one in Sri Lanka.

Normally we do not hear BCCI offcials talking about the team's performance, but this time it does not seem to be a happy bunch. BCCI vice president, Rajiv Shukla in this nnis video said that they are not satisfied with India not qualifying for the semis even after winning against teams such as Pakistan and South Africa in the Super Eight stage. He also stated that the performance of the Indian team will be reviewed.

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.
