Indian Media Report After India’s Defeat Against West Indies
Just as Andre Russell hit the ball into oblivion, he set off in wild celebrations. The entire Wankhede was stunned. They didn’t know what had struck them. They were in a shock. There was dead silence. It wasn’t meant to end like this. India had put up a competitive total on the board thanks to another classic Virat Kohli knock; they had sent the dangerous Chris Gayle — who got a century in his last innings at the same ground — back in the hut in just the second over of the innings. They had reduced the West Indies to 19/2 within three overs and still they managed to lose the match.
A couple of minutes after the match, the crowd gathered their senses to show good sportsman spirit and applauded the West Indies as the Calypso Boys erupted in a jig on the field. But still, the question on who to blame for the loss lingered on. The blame game had already begun during the innings break as social media went crazy over Rahane’s 35-ball 40. Many thought he was too slow.
