India’s aspirations of lifting the coveted Cricket World Cup trophy were shattered yesterday night as they succumbed to a crushing defeat against Australia in the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 Final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This loss sent shockwaves of disappointment across the nation, with Bollywood celebrities echoing the collective sense of dejection.
Australia, having won the toss and elected to field, capitalized on their decision by restricting India to a mere 240 runs in their allotted 50 overs, despite noteworthy half-centuries from Virat Kohli and KL Rahul. In their chase, Australia faced early setbacks, losing three wickets for less than 50 runs. However, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship, guiding their team to victory with 7 overs and 6 wickets remaining.
Bollywood’s leading lights took to social media to express their dismay. While recognizing the team’s exceptional performance throughout the tournament, where they remained undefeated until the final, the stars extended words of encouragement and solace to both the players and fans.
