Despite Australia being 47/3 while chasing 240, a 192-run partnership between Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne led to India’s defeat.

Following the loss, Indian sports icons such as Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, and Abhinav Bindra took to social media to express their appreciation for the Indian cricket team and their outstanding performance throughout the 45-day tournament. On Instagram, Kapil Dev offered comforting words to Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, recognizing his talent and success and urging him to stay positive.

India had entered the final with an impressive 10 consecutive wins. Virat Kohli emerged as the top scorer of the 2023 ODI World Cup with 765 runs, while Rohit Sharma followed with 597 runs. Mohammed Shami proved to be the top wicket-taker with 24 wickets in the tournament. The team had shown immense dedication and effort throughout the competition, but unfortunately fell short of winning it all.

Sachin Tendulkar, who was the player of the tournament in the 2003 World Cup when India lost to Australia in the final, empathized with the players after their defeat.
