India couldn’t win the last two ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015 and 2019. India got defeat in semi-final both times. Although, India’s performance in both tournaments was outstanding. In 2015, India had won all the matches before the semi-final. In 2019, India got only one defeat in the group stage against England.
India had finished the group stage at the top in 2015 and 2019 World Cups. However, the performance in the semi-final matches was criticised. But now, this year is going to be a special one in sports’ perspective. Many big sports events are scheduled in 2020. Tokyo is going to host the Olympic games from July to August. Also, three ICC world cup tournaments to be played in 2020.
