Needless to say, Team India has not won a single World Cup title in a span of about 12 years since 2011. This also appears to be true, but if you look at the real picture, you will realize that the matter is different. Let us not go back too far, if we talk about only three World Cups since 2015, the Indian team has performed brilliantly. In these three World Cups, the Indian team has lost only four matches, but these four defeats proved to be enough to keep them away from the title.
Team India last won the World Cup title in 2011.
The Indian team has the highest win percentage in the matches that the Indian team has played in this big tournament from the year 2015 to the World Cup of the year 2023. Even the Australian team, which won the title twice during this period, is below India. Let us explain to you in numbers. India has played a total of 28 matches in the World Cup from 2015 to 2023 and out of these, it won 24 and lost four. You should also know when you got these four necklaces. In the 2015 World Cup, India won seven matches, but lost to Australia in the semi-finals and the title race also ended there. In the year 2019 also, the Indian team won seven matches and lost only two. The title hopes were dashed after losing to New Zealand in the semi-finals.
After consecutive wins under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India lost in the final.
Now let’s talk about the year 2023. This year, the Indian team had overcome many obstacles where it had been stuck earlier. The Indian team won ten consecutive matches and also defeated New Zealand in the semi-finals. But coming to the finals, they faced Australia and again missed out on winning the title. It would be called a coincidence that the Indian team choked at the last moment and the hopes of the title were again postponed for four years.
Australia lost more matches than Team India, yet became world champion twice
This is the talk and statistics of the Indian team, but while moving forward, you should also take a look at Australia. The Australian team played 29 matches during these three World Cups, out of which it won 23 and lost six. Despite these four defeats, the Australian team has managed to win two of these three World Cups. Had a little bit of luck been on our side, India could have won at least two World Cups, if not more than these three, but that could not happen. Now wait for four years and continue the work of awakening hopes again.
