India’s second loss in three days in the Super Four stage knocking them out of the Asia Cup 2022. The defending champion was the favourite to win this season also but despite of big IPL name in the squad, the performance was not up to the mark.
India has officially established itself as the new chokers of international cricket after Super 4, having previously failed to advance past the semifinal and final rounds of other major tournament games.
India had high hopes for the previous decade because it had a bright start and promised a decade of domination during which they would win numerous competitions. India won the 50-over World Cup in 2011 and the Champions Trophy in 2013.
But India has repeatedly fallen short of the finish line since 2014. They were defeated by Sri Lanka in the 2014 T20 World Cup final, Australia in the 2015 50-over World Cup, West Indies in the 2016 T20 World Cup semifinal, Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy final, and New Zealand in the 2019 50-over World Cup semifinal.
