The Australia cricket team won the ODI World Cup 2023 as they defeated hosts India on November 19 at the iconic Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad. Notably, the Men in Yellow displayed a fantastic performance in the final event as Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne’s innings helped them chase down the total with 42 balls to spare, which helped them win their sixth title of the ODI World Cup.
Following the great win, Travis Head expressed his happiness when he received the Player of the Match award. The top-order batter affirms that this was a very exceptional day, which he had never dreamed of in his life. In addition, the 29-year-old cricketer had spoken up about how confident he was when he played the first 20 balls in the game.
“Never expected this, not in a million years, truly an exceptional day. Lot better than sitting on the couch at home. Really glad to contribute, the first twenty balls I played gave me a lot of confidence and yeah I was able to carry through. The way Mitch Marsh came out and took the game on, he set the tone. That was the energy we wanted and we knew the wicket may get tough,” Travis Head said after the win
However, Travis Head called Rohit Sharma one of the unluckiest captains ever who could not guide his side to the win despite giving the best performances in all the league games as well as the semi-finals. Furthermore, the left-handed batter was quite shocked by his own hundred on his big day, which helped them win the sixth title.
“Nice to be a part of it, nice to play a role in all of that. He’s (Rohit Sharma) probably the unluckiest man in the world. Again, it’s (fielding) something that I worked hard on. I couldn’t imagine getting a hundred, couldn’t probably imagine holding onto that one. Was great to hold on to that catch,” he added further.
