News Update


The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup will either make Indian cricket famous or give Australia a golden treble.

After 45 days, the World Cup is finally over. This was always going to end with India playing in the final of their own tournament in front of 100,000 fans at the world’s biggest cricket stadium.

Narendra Modi, their prime minister, will be there. This big arena in Ahmedabad, where he grew up, is named after him.

India has won all ten of their games in this event, making them the clear favorites.

If they win their 11th game, it will be their third World Cup title, but their first since 2011. They will also be the first team to win the tournament without losing since the great Australians in 2007.

With each of these big wins, India has become more and more excited. On Friday, blue-shirted fans chanted “India jeetega” (India will win) as they arrived at the city’s airport.

Hotel prices in the city have gone up by more than 100%, and traffic is likely to be terrible on Sunday morning.

Twenty-four hours before the toss, the busy streets around the stadium are already full of people selling fake, copy India shirts everywhere. This is similar to how the streets were when India beat Pakistan earlier in the tournament at the Modi Stadium.

Australia isn’t a great political or sports rival, but on Sunday, the mood will still be very partisan.

Canada’s Pat Cummins told his team, “I think you’ve got to embrace it,” on Saturday morning.

“The crowd is going to be very biased, but in sports, there’s nothing better than hearing a big crowd go quiet, and that’s what we want to do tomorrow.”

“Don’t let yourself get too stressed out.

“You have got to be up for it, you’ve got to love it and just know whatever happens it’s fine.”

India’s captain, Rohit Sharma, was able to stay calm during his 35-minute pre-match news conference, even though cell phones kept ringing and people were asking him questions.

When asked about how hard it would be to end India’s 12-year wait for a top-level white-ball trophy, he said, “The hardest thing for professional athletes is how to put all of this aside and focus on their work.”

“Being an Indian cricketer, you have to deal with pressure.”

Even though India is the favorite, there are still some unknowns in this final.

Six weeks ago, a lot of people thought England would be back here before the end of their era of white-ball domination.

English fans now have to choose between cricket’s rising star or their biggest enemy, and India fans still think that Australia is the team they didn’t want to play.

The Aussies are going to the World Cup for the sixth time, which is four more than anyone else. Australian greats like Allan Border, Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, and others are admired here almost as much as they are in their home country.

India lost to Australia in the final of the World Test Championship earlier this year. India also lost to Australia in the final of this event in 2003.

India has more than one reason to be careful.

The first game between these two teams in the World Cup was six weeks ago in Chennai. India easily won by six wickets.

Still, Australia had a small chance after that game.

In the second over of their chase, they got their opponents down to 2-3. It would have been 19-4 if Mitchell Marsh hadn’t dropped Virat Kohli on 12.

Kohli took advantage of the break and scored 85 as he and KL Rahul (97 not out) put together a winning combination of 165 runs.

According to Cummins, his team has won eight straight games since losing their second game to South Africa. “I don’t think we scored par in that first game, but we’re one catch away from potentially being in front of that game,” he said.

“We beat them 2-1 in March to win an ODI series here early in the year.”

“There’s lots of moments we can draw on where we’ve had success against a really good Indian side.”

While this was going on, Kohli was using the event to make sure that his name would still stand out during Diwali.

He has scored 711 runs at an average of 101.57 in 10 games, including three hundreds. On Wednesday, he scored a record-breaking 50th in a one-day international, making it a memorable semi-final.

Now it’s up to Kohli to get himself back on track against Josh Hazlewood, who is one of a tough opponent for him.

The Australian seamer has dismissed him five times for 51 runs in eight ODIs. This is one of many fights that could decide where the trophy goes.

Many people talk about Rohit’s record against left-arm pace. In the 2021 T20 World Cup and this year’s Asia Cup, Pakistan’s Shaheen Shah Afridi bowled him out, and Australia has Mitchell Starc as a danger.

Australia, on the other hand, has done well thanks to big scores at the top of the order, excluding Glenn Maxwell’s amazing 200 against Afghanistan.

David Warner, on the other hand, has been out three times in 10 games against India seamer Mohammed Shami. Warner has already scored two hundreds and two fifties in this event.

If Australia wins, Warner, Cummins, Hazlewood, Starc, Maxwell, Steve Smith, and Mitchell Marsh would all get their second World Cup title. Only Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin are still playing for India after their win in 2011.

The Indian cricket team can become famous forever if they win the World Cup at home, and the Australians could do what Manchester City did and win all three of their titles in 2023.

They would have a great year if they won the 50-over world championship in the same year they won the Test world championship and kept the Ashes urn in England.

When the game is over, the final will definitely go to script.

We know what to expect from it, but we’re still not sure what will happen.
