The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly opened up on India's performance in the T20 World Cup and said it was the "poorest" in the last 4-5 years.

India won three games against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia in the Super-12 stage. However, they lost against their arch-rival Pakistan and New Zealand which ended their chances of qualifying for the semifinals.

"To be honest, 2017 [and] 2019, I think India was good. 2017 Champions Trophy we lost the final to Pakistan at the Oval. Then the 2019 World Cup in England, we were exceptional right throughout, beat everyone and lost to New Zealand in the semi-final - one bad day and the entire good work for two months was just wiped away,” said Ganguly.

"[I am] a little disappointed with the way we played this World Cup. I think this has been the poorest of all what I have seen in the last four-five years. I don't know what's the reason but I just felt they did not play with enough freedom this World Cup,” Ganguly said on a TV show.

The next ICC event that the team will take part in is the 2022 T20 World Cup scheduled to be held in Australia.
