White-ball cricket to the side, India have likewise overseen supported achievement in Tests, with consecutive series wins in Australia and a 2-1 lead in England setting up their qualifications as a side that can act in all conditions. On his last day as lead trainer, Ravi Shastri thought about these accomplishments as he attempted to put their initial exit from the T20 World Cup in context.

"Now and then in life it's not with regards to what you achieve. It's what you survive. Also, what these folks have defeated in the course of the most recent five years, the manner in which they have traversed the globe and acted in each side of the globe in all organizations of the game will make this, independent of what's occurred here, as one of the extraordinary groups throughout the entire existence of the game. I've positively no doubt as far as I can say. It's deplorable we are out of this competition however that doesn't remove anything from this extraordinary side."

Shastri took over as India mentor briefly time in July 2017 and had zeroed in building a group that can win away from home.

"Across all configurations there are bounty [of gains]," he said.

I'll make due with that for quite some time. However, to go across and beat this multitude of sides and afterward every group in white-ball cricket, regardless of whether it's Twenty20 or fifty-over, we've beaten sides in their nook which was my undertaking and the group's undertaking since you were in every case large domineering jerks at home yet when you needed to go external you didn't have the merchandise. However, this group has shown they have more."

What we would have unmistakably loved was a greater hole between the IPL and the World Cup. So it's the point at which the defining moments come, when the strain hits you, you are not so turned on as you ought to be. That is not a reason.
