In the T20I World Cup, the team of South Africa finally stopped the winning streak of Team India.
On the bouncy pitch of Perth, the top order of Team India was completely shattered in front of the pace daughter of South Africa. Even after losing 5 wickets for 49 runs, India scored 133 runs for the loss of 9 wickets on the basis of Suryakumar Yadav’s innings of 68 runs in 40 balls.
In response, Team India’s bowling also created a lot of difficulties for the South African team in the beginning, but in the thrill of the last over on the basis of half-centuries from David Miller and Aiden Markram, South Africa won by 5 wickets in the points table.
But despite the loss, Indian fans are not too sad as they are missing the connection to the 2011 World Cup. This is the connection with which Team India can end the 15-year drought.
What is the 2011 losing connection to South Africa?
In fact, in the 2011 World Cup, Team India was defeated by South Africa in the league stage and after that Team India won the World Cup by defeating Sri Lanka in the final, registering consecutive victories.
This is the reason why the fans are missing that connection and after losing to South Africa, they feel that Team India can end the 15-year drought now.
Amazing coincidence –
Talking about the 2011 World Cup, in the league stage, Team India gave a target of 297 runs in the match against South Africa, which the South African team achieved by losing 7 wickets with 2 balls to spare. Incidentally, South Africa won the match played in Perth on Sunday with 2 balls to spare.
In 2011 too, India had defeated Pakistan and the Netherlands before losing to South Africa, the same thing happened here. Team India did not lose a single match after that match in 2011.
Fans hope that history will repeat itself and Team India will repeat the same feat once again and will return home only after ending 15 years of drought.
Not only this, Ireland also defeated the England team in the 2011 World Cup and in this T20I World Cup also Ireland defeated the England team by making a big upset.
