Do you think the Indian batsmen are to be blamed for India's loss to Australia in the second T20 on Tuesday?

Swapnil Chavan ,
Celebrity Manager

I don't think Indian batsmen should be blamed for India's loss to Australia. It's purely a game; while one has to win, the other team  naturally ends up losing it. It absolutely depends on the team skills. No one should take it personally and that's what defines sportsmanship..

Tabrais Shah,
Businessman

I don't think we were good enough with the batting. The wicket was a bit sticky to start with. It was difficult for them as well, but after the dew set in, they got away.

Husain Shaikh,
Politician

 It's better to appreciate the bowling of Australia then blaming our batsmen, speak about when the situation is not in our favor is when we have to put 120 percent on the field. It is the attitude that matters most and it is something Team India embraces.

Nitish Chury,
Owner of a restaurant

No, it was tricky conditions and players were playing for the first time on the ground, so nobody knew about the wicket or how the opponent was going to play on that particular day. India has played pretty well from 2016, so we can't blame them for a loss in one match.

Priya Sundaram,
CS student

Winning and losing are two sides of a coin in terms of sports, games or anything in general. Whenever we win we celebrate; but when we lose, instead of looking at where we must have probably gone wrong, we very conveniently use our old traditional “blame game” business. It's okay if we lost the match, but yes we are Indians and we will hit them hard in the next game.

Anushikha Kadam,
BMS student

As sure as death and taxes, in every sport there are winners and losers. More specifically, there is only one winner and then the rest. So you shouldn't specifically blame anyone for this failure. It's a sport and winning and losing are a part and parcel of it.
