4. India vs. West Indies ICC T20 World Cup 2016
The latest one to add to this list is the second semifinal of the ICC T20 World Cup 2016: India vs. West Indies.
It has to be said, the best reaction to a defeat is to be gracious.
The West Indies team played better than the Indian team. They chased down 192 with 4 balls to spare.
This is incredible keeping in mind the pressure one has in a semi-final game. No-balls, match fixed, luck are all just ways to convince ourselves of our own deception.
There is no proof of match fixing and it definitely wasn’t luck.
Don’t depreciate someone’s efforts by attributing their triumph to some fluke. Don’t disparage the game itself.
Dhoni rightly said, “it wasn’t our day today.”
