India last won the ICC competition in 2013. Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the Champions Trophy by defeating England on the soil of England. Since then, India has repeatedly failed in major competitions in the last 10 years. The baton of leadership has passed from Dhoni's hand to Virat Kohli's to Rohit Sharma's. But the result did not change. The team had to go to the semi-final or final of the ICC competition and lose. In the last 10 years, India have reached the semi-finals or finals of any ICC competition 8 times. They lost 8 times.

Now need 2007 50 ovs wc type treatment needed by fans
Then something will happen

Don't care much. I have an IPL to care for every year. On top of that our cricket team doesn't waste one cent off taxpayer's money. As long as they give me entertainment on summer evenings. I don't care. There is no bragging rights winning in a sport of which half the world hasn't even heard about.
I see from another perspective. The fact is that we were always in top 3 but not the top team to go through the distance and finally won in the last 6-7 years. This has to be accepted as there were weakness which were one or other way exposed in the knockout be it one day T20 or Test. Now the situation started become alarming in the bilateral series too. Until the same is addressed without being partial and bringing new players in the team with no importance to IPL it will be very difficult to reverse the trend.
Upping this thread.

1. Star worshiping by broadcaster.
2. Overconfidence and self branding of players. Stadium crowd didn't help either.
3. Toxic attitude of fans.
4. Dead live crowd who doesn't contribute to our confidence.
5. That stadium. Try shifting important events to other stadiums too.
What is this nonsense thread? Shameless fans. Fans like you don't deserve anything
