Twitter Ponders Over Mistakes as India Crash Out of ICC Women's World T20


India’s good run in the ICC Women’s World T20 2018 came to a disappointing end as they crashed out of the tournament after an eight-wicket loss to England in the second semi-final in Antigua.

Electing to bat first, India were cruising at one stage with Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues batting well, at 89 for 2 but once the latter got run out for 26, the innings went nowhere for India as they lost eight wickets for just 23 runs to be bundled out for 112.

Heather Knight (3/9) was the best bowler for England and was well backed by Sophie Ecclestone (2/22) and Kirstie Gordon (2/20) as enjoyed the assistance from the pitch for the spinners.

England despite losing both their openers early in the chase, cantered to a big win thanks to half-centuries from Amy Jones and Natali Sciver.

The major talking point came right at the time of the toss when skipper Harmanpreet Kaur informed that India had dropped Mithali Raj from the side and it was no surprise that
Twitter despite all praise for the efforts of the Indian team, stressed on the crucial mistakes that the side made in the vital encounter.
