“We Were Not Good Enough”: Rohit Sharma After Cricket World Cup Final Loss To Australia
Indian cricket team led by Rohit Sharma won everything on their way to the final of the Cricket World Cup but failed in the final. Australia’s strong cricket team won their sixth World Cup, surpassing India’s record three wins by six wickets. For India, their ten-year wait for a major ICC Trophy continued. After the Cricket World Cup final, Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma admitted that they lost to a better team. “The result didn’t go our way. We weren’t good enough today. We did everything but it wasn’t supposed to be. 20-30 more runs would have been good, KL and Kohli were sewing a good partnership and we were looking. at 270-280 but we kept losing wickets,” said Rohit Sharma after the match.
“When you have 240 on the board, you want to take wickets but credit to Head and Labuschagne for getting us out of the game, but I think a wicket was a bit better to bat under lights. No you trying to give that as an excuse. . We didn’t put enough runs on the board. Many thanks to the two men in the middle for setting up a great partnership.”
India’s dreams of winning a third World Cup title were in jeopardy after an inexplicable disaster saw them crash to a six-wicket victory over invincible Australia here on Sunday, plunging the cricket-obsessed nation into deep mourning.
Australia thus won a record sixth World Cup title, extending their dominance of the competition which began well back in 1975.
When put into bat, India were below par at 240 despite contributions from Rohit Sharma (47 off 31 balls), Virat Kohli (54 off 63) and KL Rahul (66 off 107).
Similar to his performance in the WTC final against India in June, Travis Head smashed 137 off 120 balls as Australia beat the target in 43 overs.
Indian hopes were raised when Australia lost three wickets for 47 but a 192-run partnership between Ceannaire and Marnus Labuschagne (58 not out) closed the door on the opposition.
Australia’s brilliant bowling and fielding also played a major role in their impressive win. The dew in the evening also made batting easier on a slow, dry surface.
India, who were the only unbeaten side going into the final after 10 wins on the trot, fell flat in the final. The last surviving world title came back in 2011 and the last ICC trophy was the Champions League triumph in 2013.
India’s wins in ICC events in the last decade include the loss in the 2014 World T20 final, the 2016 World T20 semi-final, the 2017 Champions Trophy final, the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-final, the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-final 2022 World T20 and a runner-up finish. in the 2021 and 2023 World Test Championship cycle.
