In a statement, Sachin Tendulkar has said, “I know the semi-final against England was a big disappointment. Let’s accept that we didn’t get a good total on the board. It was a tough game for us, a poor and disappointing loss. We have also been the number one T-20 side in the world.

“Getting to this No. 1 spot doesn’t happen overnight. Let’s not judge our team based on this performance. The players also didn’t want to go out and fail. In sports, there are these ups and downs. We have to be in it together,” he added.
