Meanwhile, the incident did not disturb Virat’s concentration levels as he completed his sixth half-century in the ODI World Cup 2023. However, soon after, the player got out unfortunately and it looked like India were under huge pressure. Rahul, who took a long time to adjust to the conditions, was also out for 66 as India could only score 240 against Australia on the final night.
When it came to chasing the target, the bowlers once again got off to a great start and took three important wickets of David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Steven Smith early on. It looked like Australia was in some kind of trouble, but Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne made a 192-run partnership, which sealed victory for the Australian team. Ultimately they managed to win the match by six wickets and won their sixth world title in the history of ODI cricket.
Meanwhile, players like Mohammed Siraj, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli broke down after the defeat and several pictures of them crying after the match went viral on social media.
