T20 World Cup: Nothing Worked For India On Sunday: Sachin Tendulkar

New Delhi: Following the humiliating eight-wicket loss to New Zealand in the T20 World Cup fixture in Dubai, batting genius Sachin Tendulkar said on Monday that it was a difficult day for the Indian cricket team on-field and nothing worked for Virat Kohli’s side.

“It was a difficult day for our team but these kinds of days come sometimes, when even if you try, nothing comes out. Nothing much to talk about honestly. I just hope in the coming days, our team will show something great in this tournament,” Tendulkar said in a Facebook video after the game.

This was India’s second successive defeat of the tournament and they are now on the brink of early exit from the T20 World Cup.

“I felt India was playing a catching-up game, the way New Zealand was dominating, it was a difficult time for our batters because they could not get those easy singles which forced them to play big shots. I don’t think there was that penetration in our bowling,” Tendulkar said.

The maestro also praised Kane Williamson’s leadership skills, saying that his bowling changes from the very onset were “top-notch.”

“From ball one, the bowling changes of Williamson were top-notch. The planning was good and in the first six overs we were 35/2 and from those 35 runs the 20 came in five overs,” Tendulkar said.

“When Pant came in to bat, immediately the spinner’s end was changed by Williamson. Again a smart move. All in all, I felt India was playing a catching game because of how New Zealand dominated the game. It was a tough time for India batsmen which forced them to play the big shot,” the batting legend added.
