“But no T20 World Cup,” Twitter reacts in disappointment on India’s no. 1 ICC ranking and most victories in T20I cricket in 2022

India dominated all the T20I bilateral series they played in 2022, but couldn't live up to the expectations in Asia Cup and World Cup

India didn’t look the best team in the recently finished T20 World Cup by any stretch of the imagination, as not only did they lose a match in the group round of the tournament, but they lost the semi-final match against England totally one-sided too, and couldn’t qualify to the finals.

But, on the aggregate, 2022 was one of the best years for the Indian team in the T20 format of the game. India has had the most no. of victories to their name in T20 cricket in 2022, Indian batsmen have scored the most fours and sixes, they have also scored the most the 50s and 100s, and India is currently the no. 1 T20I team in the world in the ICC rankings as well.

But, what has been missing from India’s performance is the fact that they failed in two multi-nation tournaments in which they went in as favorites. In the Asia Cup 2022, which was played in UAE, India lost two games against Pakistan and Sri Lanka respectively in the Super 4 round after having a good start and couldn’t qualify for the finals there either.


India had a great start in T20 World Cup as well, just like the Asia Cup

The same happened to the men in blue in the T20 World Cup in 2022. They had a great start with a thrilling victory against Pakistan in the first game they played at MCG, but then they lost against South Africa in Perth. Although they still topped their group by winning 4 out of 5 games, the way India played in the semis, it became very clear that they were not the best team in the tournament.

Some of the Indian fans reacted to India’s overall T20I record during the ongoing calendar year and although the overall record looks great, the fans were quick to point out that despite having such a great overall record in the shortest format, India didn’t win the World Cup.

Here are the Twitter reactions of the fans –



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
