Fans are very disappointed as the World Cup 2023 trophy slipped from the hands of the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team. India entered the final after winning 10 matches in a row but missed out. Australia easily chased down the target of 241 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Pat Cummins and the Brigade hoisted the flag of victory by 6 wickets. Australia won the ODI World Cup title for the sixth time. Let us tell you that even 20 years ago, India was defeated by Australia in the final. Mohammad Kaif, who was a part of the Indian team in the World Cup 2003, says that he was heartened by the Rohit brigade’s performance. The former batsman said that he does not believe that only the best team always wins the World Cup.
“All the best to Australia,” Kaif said on Star Sports. But I am not ready to believe that the best team wins the World Cup. I can’t believe it. Indian team is currently the best team on paper. No matter how many matches we played against Australia, it was expected that the Indian team would win this match but today they lost. It was a bad day. It happens in a match that one day goes bad. India lost the toss. He had to bat first. The pitch was slow. Cummins was well organized. He trapped the batsman by hitting a slow bouncer. Pursued his eagle. But I don’t believe that a strong team will win the World Cup.
Kaif further said, “All the best to Australia.” I have feelings too. We lost to Australia in 2003 itself. We played very well but lost. Ricky Ponting scored a century in that match. Hearts were broken there too. I can understand that Rohit Sharma What must you be feeling? He knows he had a strong team under him. We don’t know what will happen in the future. But if you ask me, my chest is full of pride. I salute Rohit and the team. Team India’s performance in the World Cup was very good.
