Australia has extended their astounding record of title victories to seven by defeating hosts and undefeated tournament favourites India by six wickets to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 in Ahmedabad. Despite losing three early wickets during their run pursuit at a full Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday evening, the composed but seasoned Australian side cruised to a comfortable victory.

It awarded captain Pat Cummins and his team the trophy despite the fact that they were not considered contenders to win the tournament over six weeks prior.
In fact, on October 8, Australia and India began their respective campaigns against one another in Chennai. Also, in that match, star India batsman Virat Kohli and KL Rahul collaborated to guide India towards a respectable total and secure their initial victory of the tournament.
In Ahmedabad, where India found themselves in a comparable predicament, Kohli (54) and Rahul (66) once more collaborated to India’s rescue. But India’s batting collapse on the largest stage resulted in a pitiful target of 241 after fifty overs.
With consistent dismissals, Australia’s bowlers, led by Mitchell Starc’s brilliant demonstration of fast bowling with figures of 3-55 in 10 overs, kept the Indian batting powerhouse at bay. In 10 overs, Captain Cummins amassed figures of 2-34, whereas fellow seamer Josh Hazlewood amassed 2-60.
