India vs Australia ICC World Cup 2023 Final Today: 4 money lessons from the biggest festival of cricket


If you are a fan, you get to see some great cricket from the giants as well as the dogs. You will wait patiently for 90 minutes to book your ticket to your hometown venue only to see that lonely sign: All tickets sold out. You will swallow your pride and watch the games at home with friends and family, wearing your favorite team T-shirt, very lucky (unwashed since the start of the World Cup), demolishing every which is promised by your favorite home food delivery app. However, you would be gobsmacked by all the behind-the-scenes organization, people management and security at every venue.

Before India and Australia meet at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad for the match to beat – the 2023 World Cup final – on Sunday, November 19, think about the lessons this World Cup has taught you about investing.

How create a winning team: Bring together bowlers, fielders and bowlers with the help of the support team

It is a matter of pride to be selected for the Indian team. You have star batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill and record breakers like Virat Kohli and incredible bowling geniuses like Mohammed Shami, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ravinder Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav. But the team’s keeper KL Rahul, and the young centurion Shreyas Iyer.

That’s how well you know your investments, right? If you have blue chip stocks, you can relax, but most of us are treading lightly on the field, gauging the state of the field (is there dew? Is this slow webbing that will help the spinners or is there a bounce?) , aren’t we? So the more you learn about the stocks you’re investing in, the better you’ll be able to navigate the ups and downs in the game.

And there is the support team. Of course everyone is familiar with ‘The Wall’, head coach Rahul Dravid. But in this World Cup you have just seen Virat Kohli telling the fielding coach that KL Rahul’s catch was deserved. This field coach is T Dilip. Bowling coach Paras Mambrey, batting coach Vikram Rathore helped make this team unstoppable. So you also need to have a mix of different stocks in your portfolio, and have your money manager advise you like Dravid does for the team, so that you come out winning.

Set a target score: The batting duos established the target

If you’ve played at Eden Gardens, you know the outfield is fast. If you are playing in Dharamshala, there will be dew on the pitch for the second innings. No matter which area you go down to bat first, the entire team looks to your batter to perform. That doesn’t mean the competition team doesn’t know your game. Just as fans know five of Virat’s favorite shots (‘the cover drive’, the ‘late cut’, the ‘pull shot’, the ‘rare sweep’ and the ‘inside shot’ without stop), the competing teams. setting up fielders to ensure that Virat’s batting can be cut short.

As the batsmen go out there are sneaking runs between the wicket, getting their fours and sixes without fear of the pace bowlers like the southpaw Mitchell Starc, attacking them first and the spinners like Adam Zampa who follow when the seam is bashed. Young Adam Zampa has been relentless in the last few games (he will take inspiration from the great Shane Warne), as he has an incredible ability to adjust bowling by knowing what shot the batsman wants to play, and he will trying to beat India at the match.

When you invest, know your competitors too. If you have invested in one mutual fund, it makes sense to monitor the performance of the other funds.

Six bowlers is good, but we have five bowlers who are stars!

Imagine the games won even though Ravichandran Ashwin is not playing, our batsman and our medium pacer Hardik Pandya who is down with injury (that game against Pune against Bangladesh when he twisted his ankle while trying for the ball to be pitched after. ), and without Prasidh Krishna. But we had an ace up our sleeve: Mohammed Shami.

Everyone knows the three who supported Shami when things went bad for him. But if you were part of the hate and then saw the semi-final against New Zealand and watched Shami take those seven wickets, you must be eating crow now. As the commentator said: Shami laao, wicket paao!

Sometimes stocks don’t perform the way you wanted them to. It’s easy to curse out your money manager. But stick to your choice, and you’ll be thankful when the market goes up and your bank account overflows!

Dropped catches lose matches! That’s why we need T Dilip in our team

If you watched the semi-final between Australia and South Africa, you must have watched those terrible catches while crying. Jonty Rhodes must have been crying over the drowned catches…

India had great players on the ball, starting with Eknath Solkar who is still one of the best in the world. T Dilip is putting the team through the rigors of practice, practice and practice. You have never seen our fielders jump, dive and run (without taking their eyes off the ball) as we see them doing now. No fielder has been sent to the boundary because he needs to rest. They are all alert throughout the game.

You should always be aware of the whole investment game. Never miss your goals just like the captain of the field team. Just like the fielder in the slips you need to be alert to the nickname chance – a sudden change in the market, you need to have the best hand-eye coordination to spring into action and catch the ball. Great pitching wins games (just as you see a new opportunity to invest and go up to reach the stock).

As you read this, the eyes of the world are on Ahmedabad. Shall we unleash the champions and rule this gentleman’s game? The pitch is supposed to be helpful for the batsmen as well as the seamers. Just like our investment life. Let’s just pray to the cricket gods and let’s hope for the most amazing game of this decade. Go team India!
