The Indian cricket team has not won any ICC (International Cricket Council) trophy since 2013. In the last few years, Team India have entered the knockout or final of the ICC tournaments, but have not been able to win the title. A similar incident occurred in the final of the ICC World Test Championships. Under the leadership of Virat Kohli, it looked like Team India would end the eight-year drought of the ICC Trophy, but this did not happen and New Zealand won the title by eight wickets in the title match. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has said where Team India went wrong.
As I said, the first 10 overs are crucial and both Kohli and Pujara misses by 10 balls and that puts a lot of pressure on the team. pic.twitter.com/YVwnRGJXXr

After the match, Tendulkar posted on Twitter, “Congratulations to the New Zealand cricket team who won the World Test Championship 2021. You turned out to be a good team, Team India will be disappointed with your performance. As I said, the first 10 overs are very important and India lost both Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara in 10 balls, which put a lot of pressure on the team.
The historic match was played in Southampton and was heavily hit by the weather. The first and fourth day of the game were completely washed away in the rain, causing the reserve day to be used for the outcome of the match. The ICC held June 23 as the exclusive day of the match. Team India started to play 64 runs before two wickets and were all out for 170. New Zealand set a target of 139 runs for the loss of two wickets.
