Indian cricketers have taken to the social media to post their emotional messages for the Indian cricket fans after the Indian cricket team couldn’t reach the Semi-Finals of the T20 World Cup 2021.
The Indian cricket team, who were the favourites to win the T20 World Cup 2021, took an early exit out of the T20 World Cup 2021 after the team’s poor start in the tournament, losing their opening 2 matches against Pakistan and New Zealand.

Virat Kohli, who played his last match as India’s T20 captain, posted on his social media that the team failed to perform to its fullest on the big stage. He continued that the team is really disappointed, and praised the fans for their continuous support and promised to bounce back strong.
