New Zealand beat Afghanistan by 8 wickets, ensure India’s exit from T20 World Cup: How social media reacted

Indian fans were displeased with the exit of their team from the T20 World Cup and demanded that there must be some accountability from the team management.

New Zealand defeated Afghanistan by 8 wickets and 11 balls to spare on Sunday, thereby ensuring India’s exit from the T20 World Cup. Batting first, Afghanistan posted a measly score of 124 runs which New Zealand managed to chase down comfortably.

The result has expectedly generated a host of reactions from Indian cricket fans, who were hoping for an Afghanistan win as that would have ensured India remained in contention for a semi-final sport in the T20 World Cup. However, with New Zealand winning the game, India would only be playing for pride versus Namibia in their final match.

Pakistan has won 4 out of 4 matches and their match versus Scotland is currently underway.
