India's performance T20 World Cup:

India's performance in the ICC T20 World Cup held in Dubai was quite disappointing. India was one of the countries that were considered to be the main contenders to win the World Cup this time, but the fans' hopes were completely dashed after the defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the first match and the subsequent loss to New Zealand. In this year's World Cup, India could not even make it to the semi-finals.
