Team India played good cricket in ICC World Twenty20 - played in Sri Lanka in 2012.
Despite strong performances though, MS Dhoni and his team failed to reach the final four.
Indian players were subjected to a fair bit of scare but they came out on the winning side against Afghanistan in the opening Group A match in Colombo.
Yuvraj Singh's three wickets helped his side to a tentative win. He will now look to do the same in Bangladesh.
The team then delivered a stunning team effort as they crushed England by a huge margin of 90 runs.
Spinners Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla (both unseen here) claimed six wickets together.
Australia though spoilt India's rhythym to an extent.
Shane Watson was the main architect of a 9-wicket Aussie win as he smashed 72 off just 42 balls - hitting 2 fours and 7 sixes. The match was sealed in the 15th over!
All the attention though then turned to the next match at hand: Arch-rivals Pakistan playing spirited cricket.
India though managed to destroy Pakistan by 8 wickets to get a lot of confidence back after their abject surrender in the previous match.
T20 has a lot to do with good fortune as well. Fortune though favours the brave.
India needed to win their final league match by 31 runs after being put into bat by South Africa.
India did win the match by a run but it was not enough to book a place in the final four!
This time though, the 2007 champions will be looking to go the distance.
