Proof that India never had a chance
The India vs England semi-final has a lot of people debating whether India had a chance, or not.
One only needs to see the Worm chart (refer https://cricketdata.org/cricket-data-formats/matches/india-vs-england-2nd-semi-final-3f8db381-35e0-4f29-9700-99eef74d4472 ) and you will see exactly what we mean
This clearly tell you that England (red line) were on the high side right from the beginning. India NEVER had a CHANCE. India’s loss was pretty much guaranteed at around the 10th over, as the gap between the two lines increases substantially thereon.
The feeling I get is of rushing up a long staircase, and tripping at the last step just to hit one’s nose and then slide down all the way back with no more control, laying in a heap right at the bottom. This isn’t even second best. It’s simply pathetic for such a well touted team to lose in the most flamboyant way imaginable – they couldn’t take a SINGLE wicket off of England.
And that, as they say, is that. The winners and the chaff have clearly been delineated. There is no going back.
