The joy of 43 wins in three formats is severely overshadowed by the pain of 6 defeats. Before that, how many matches did Team India play in all three formats this year? Now let’s see what their results are.
Played 67. Won 43. Lost 20.
Team India has played a total of 67 matches across all three formats this year. They won 43 and lost 20 matches. One match was tied due to rain and 3 matches were inconclusive.
These are the 6 sad defeats in this year’s team media show.
1. Latest defeat in Bangladesh after 7 years in ODIs..
Having suffered 2 defeats in the multi-nation tournament, the Test-ODI series against South Africa, and the fifth Test against England, the Indian team recently suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Bangladesh. Lokesh Rahul’s 73 runs gave Bangladesh a target of 184 runs. Due to the performance of the bowlers, Bangladesh lost 9 wickets for 136 runs.
Later, Mehdi Hasan Miraj, who was at the crease, put on a partnership of 51 runs for the last wicket with Mustafizur Rahman. Due to poor fielding and dropped catches in the last over, second-placed team India lost to seventh-placed Bangladesh in the ICC rankings. Thus, Team India had to face a painful defeat in the opening and closing months of the year.
On 15 January 2022, Indian cricket received a shock when Kohli relinquished the captaincy after a 2–1 Test series defeat. Virat Kohli, who won 2 Test series in Australia, 3 in England, and 2 in South Africa, gave up the captaincy. Indian fans are also unable to forget the pain of South Africa’s defeat, which was another shock by Kohli’s decision. There was no player like Kohli or former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who could have commanded the Test team in Team India at that time. So this decision is also painful.
BCCI has pressed to make Rohit Sharma as the captain and Lokesh Rahul as the vice-captain of the Test team. Until a year ago, Rohit could not even get a place in the Test team. His performance abroad is also not good. Meanwhile, Rahul is constantly battling injury. Due to this, the year 2022 has left a lot of pain in the history of Indian cricket due to the consecutive defeats of Team India and the injuries of the players.
2. Unfulfilled hopes in the T-20 World Cup semi-final..
Team India entered Australia with the intention of forgetting all the defeats and winning the T-20 World Cup. After playing 5 matches in the group stage, India won 4 and reached the semifinals. Team India scored 168 runs for 6 wickets in front of England in the semifinals held at Adelaide. After that, England reached the target by 10 wickets in 16 overs.
England’s opener Jos Buttler scored 80 and Alex Hales scored 86 to lead the team to victory. The Indian bowlers could not take a single wicket in the match. Cricket experts described this defeat as more painful than Pakistan’s 10-wicket defeat in the 2021 T20 World Cup. In this way in 2022, Team India could not reach the final of 2 multi-nation tournaments.
3. Another terrible defeat in Asia Cup Super-4.
Team India, which has won 7 Asia Cup titles so far, has reached UAE to win the 8th title. The Indian team made its strong intention clear by defeating Pakistan by 5 wickets in the first match. They defeated Hong Kong in the second match and reached the Super-4 stage.
Then there was a match against Sri Lanka. To reach the final, you have to win the match at any cost. India scored 173 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. Later Sri Lanka was reduced to 110 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 14.1 overs. In the end, he had to score 21 runs in 12 balls. While Bhuvi gave away 14 runs in the 19th over, Arshdeep could not save 7 runs in the last over. After 2 defeats in the Super-4, India was out of the final race.
4. In the 5th Test of the series, England suffered a heavy defeat.
In the 4 Tests held till then, Team India was leading by 2-1. The fifth Test has been moved to June 2022 due to a busy schedule. India scored 416 runs in the first innings of the fifth Test. England was bowled out for 284 runs in the second innings. In the third innings, India was bowled out for 245 runs, giving England a target of 378 runs.
In the fourth innings, defending India sent three English batters to the pavilion for 109 runs. India was expected to win this match. England’s former captain Joe Root and wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, who returned to bat, shattered India’s dream of winning the series in England. Both of them scored a century and put on a partnership of 269 runs in 316 balls. Defeated India by 7 wickets. India seemed to win the match till the fourth day, but everything changed on the last day. The series ended in a 2-2 draw.
5. 3-0 defeat in the ODI series too.
After losing the Test series in South Africa, Team India had to suffer a 3-0 defeat in the ODI series. Africa won the first ODI by 31 runs by 7 wickets. Then came the third ODI. It handed Team India their first painful defeat in ODIs this year. India came into the ring with a target of 288 runs and lost 6 wickets and scored only 210 runs.
Deepak Chahar extended the innings with tailenders. He scored 54 runs off 34 balls. But he was dismissed for the 8th wicket at the score of 278. 10 runs are needed in 17 balls for victory. Even though I thought it would be a win.. the last two batters got out within 5 runs.
6. India lost the Test series in South Africa by 1-2.
In December 2021, Team India traveled to South Africa to play 3 Tests and 3 ODIs. India won the first Test of the series by 113 runs. 2021 ended with this victory. After that, the year 2022 came. In the first Test of this year and the second Test of the series, South Africa won by 7 wickets against India.

Even though there are fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, and Siraj in Indian bowling… Team India lost.
Africa defeated India by 7 wickets in the last Test. This time the Indian bowlers were desperate for wickets to save the target of 212 runs on the fourth day. The African batsmen smashed the target in 63.3 overs.
