India did not lose the T20 World Cup semi-final last night. West Indies won.
It’s time commentators and fans gave up listing reasons like the quality of the pitch and the number of no-balled chances Lendl Simmons enjoyed.
Yes, Simmons was fortunate and he made the most of it. Just like Virat Kohli did on being let off by a couple of poor throws by the fielding side.
Yuvraj Singh’s value was felt in his absence.
This West Indian side consists of T20 specialists who ply their trade around the world. They are professionals and can match the best in this format.
Simmons overcame jet-lag to single-handedly lead his side home.
What more can you ask or say? The better team on the day triumphed.
Excuses be damned.
