The the International Cricket Council (ICC) named the Team of the Tournament for the 2023 World Cup on Monday. Thus, there was no Pakistani player on the list. Even though Pakistan came into the World Cup as the number one team, they were eliminated in the group stage. Out of nine games, the Green Shirts lost five. Australia, which won the title for the sixth time, is represented by players from the ICC. India, which came in second, and South Africa, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka are also represented.
No player from Pakistan makes it to World Cup Team of Tournament
The people who made the choice were commentators Ian Bishop, Kass Naidoo, and Shane Watson, Wasim Khan (ICC General Manager, Cricket), and journalist Sunil Vaidya from the Ahmedabad Mirror. So, Australia won their sixth 50-overs World Cup title the day before, thanks to starter Travis Head’s amazing hundred, which helped them beat India by six wickets.
When they were asked to bat first, India got a below-par 240 all out in exactly 50 overs at a packed Narendra Modi Stadium thanks to KL Rahul and Virat Kohli’s hard-fought fifty runs.
Also, their top order also had trouble, but Head’s 137 off 120 balls helped them win easily with seven overs to spare in a game that never really got exciting.
