Consistency at its Peak India Cricket Team

Even though India has not won any ICC trophy since 2013, the consistent and decent performance of the team in major competitions was the prime impetus for its dominance over other countries.

Major Events:

  • 2011 – India won World Cup after a 28-year-long wait
  • 2013 – India won Champions Trophy
  • 2015 – India reached World Cup Semi-finals
  • 2017 – India reached Champions Trophy Finals
  • 2019 – India reached World Cup Semi-finals

India bagged a world cup win and a champions trophy win and appeared in 2 semi-finals and a final. This is how India has shown an unmatched consistency in all the major tournaments in this decade.

India becomes the Best ODI Team of the Decade

Let’s hope India will continue to enjoy its dominance in the New Year!
