Team India underestimated the talent of a belligerent batting side was trounced in a tight game of T-20 cricket at the Wankhede Stadium. West Indies did an encore that was witnessed in a one day game by South Africa hitting 438 in the same venue. Cricket is a game of luck and the stakes are very high and each and every team is fighting for the top honours. Once we touched 190 plus, we thought the game was over. But no match is won or lost until the last ball is bowled. The new entry to the side Lendl and Russell roughened our spin fort and made a mincemeat of a harmless pace attack on a batting track. Kohli masterful innings was in vain and Dhoni could not do a magician in finishing the game with sensible bowling changes. In all we were baffled and knocked out of our own game T-20 cricket and that too in our backyard and at the headquarters of Indian Cricket. Kudos to West Indies for entering finals.
