The final match of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will witness Rohit Sharma’s Indian cricket team competing against Australia, led by Pat Cummins, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on November 19. As the IND vs AUS final approaches, fans have begun to worship the Indian skipper Rohit and the prominent face of Team India, Virat Kohli. In Pune, fans have been pouring milk on the posters of Virat and Rohit as a gesture of their devotion.
The viral video showcasing fans pouring milk on the posters of Virat and Rohit is currently circulating widely on various social media platforms. The immense fan following of these two cricket stars is extraordinary and has captivated the attention of everyone in anticipation of the highly anticipated match between these two prominent cricketing icons.
India is set to face Australia once again in the final of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, taking place at the Narendra Modi Stadium. This encounter holds significance for India as they aim to seek retribution for their defeat in the 2003 marquee event. Back then, under the leadership of Ricky Ponting, Australia emerged victorious over India by a margin of 125 runs. The match was heavily one-sided, with India struggling to find their footing throughout.
The cricket scenario has experienced a notable change in recent times, with India establishing itself as a dominant team, regularly competing with and defeating Australia in various matches. In the latest ODI World Cup, the team led by Rohit Sharma emerged victorious over Australia during their encounter in Chennai last month.
Australia’s ODI World Cup campaign began with two consecutive defeats, but the journey of the team from Down Under has been a story of resilience and redemption. Despite their initial setbacks, the five-time champions regrouped and made a strong comeback in the tournament, displaying their exceptional cricketing skills. In contrast, India’s dominance in the ongoing ODI World Cup can be attributed to the collective effort of the entire team. Every player has stepped up and delivered whenever the situation demanded. While Virat Kohli has been in outstanding form, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record with 711 runs, Mohammad Shami has been wreaking havoc with his fiery bowling spells, taking 18 wickets.
The stage is now prepared for the grand cricket event, which guarantees thrilling moments and a deserving finale to the impressive display of skills by the participating teams.
India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wicket-keeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Ishan Kishan, Prasidh Krishna.
