ODI World Cup 2023

‘Har decade me world Cup Jeet rhe ye toh’ – Fans react as Australia defeat India in final of ODI World Cup 2023 and lift trophy for 6th time

Australia clinched their sixth ODI World Cup in Ahmedabad

In a thrilling culmination to the ODI World Cup 2023, India and Australia battled fiercely at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium, with Australia ultimately emerging victorious, securing their sixth World Cup title with a commanding 6-wicket win. Pat Cummins’ pre-match statement about silencing the massive crowd in the world’s largest stadium turned into reality as the Australians executed a clinical performance.

Opting to field first after winning the toss, Pat Cummins’ decision paid off as the Australian bowlers restricted India to a total of 240 runs. Despite a shaky start that saw the hosts at 81-3 after the dismissals of Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer in quick succession, KL Rahul’s patient innings of 66 runs and Virat Kohli’s composed half-century helped India post a competitive score. However, the failure of other batsmen to contribute significantly left India in a challenging position.

In pursuit of 241, the Australian innings faced early setbacks with Jasprit Bumrah claiming the wickets of Mitchell Marsh and Steve Smith, while Mohammed Shami dismissed David Warner, leaving Australia at 47/3. The turning point came as Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne formed a resilient partnership, steering Australia out of trouble.
