It is often said that sport is much more than just a game, it’s an emotion. There are times when a few sporting events can have such a huge impact on our lives that we wish they were not true. Indian cricket fans have witnessed few of those events in last few years which would have been great only if they were an April fool’s day prank and nothing more. Let us turn back the clock and look at the top 5 events in that list:
1. India’s World Cup exit in 2007
The series of events in the cricket World Cup 2007 was just unbelievable for the Indian fans to digest. A star-studded Indian side, going into the tournament as one of the title-contenders, got eliminated in the group stages after suffering shocking defeats at the hands of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. While Sachin Tendulkar won the World Cup in 2011, it would have been amazing if the 2007 WC exit was just a prank news and legendary players like Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly had also lifted the coveted trophy. Unfortunately, that remained only a dream for all the fans as both the legendary players never played a World Cup again.
