world cup: Cricket World Cup review: Australia completes superb 2023, India falls short and see you soon USA
Year of Australia
Australia regained its status as the king of ODI cricket in the second half of 2023 when the team became world champions in Test cricket and also retained the Ashes – for some, the pinnacle of the sport – through a high-profile Test series -draw octane i. England. Pat Cummins was the captain for life and will go down as one of Australia’s all-format cricket leaders. Meanwhile, Travis Head was man of the match in the World Test Championship final against India in June and in the World Cup final against the same opponent five months later. Australia have long had a reputation for producing when it really matters, and beating India in their own backyard in front of nearly 100,000 spectators for a record-breaking sixth title was another example of that.
India is short
India did everything right at the World Cup, delivering nine straight wins in the group and then another in the semi-finals against New Zealand. It was all decided for them on Sunday – the best batting and bowling team playing in front of their prime minister and 92,000 fans in the world’s largest cricket venue built especially for this moment, and a nation of 1.4 billion people loving cricket at his part. breath. No wonder Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and the rest of the Indian team looked so heartbroken after Australia ran out of options and an eerie silence made sure to spread through the Narendra Modi stadium which was a sea of Indian blue. Fans were seen crossing their fingers during the match followed by tears. India, the country that holds much of the power in world cricket, is still stuck on two 50-over World Cup titles. Since winning the 50-over World Cup in 2011, India have lost the T20 World Cup final in 2014, the Champions Trophy final in 2017, the World Test Championship finals in 2021 and this year, and now a match this World Cup at home.
Player of the Tournament
It had to be Kohli, a great Indian who strengthened his status as the best player of his generation with 765 runs in the tournament. No player had scored more than 700 runs in a single World Cup until “The King” scored three hundreds – including a record 50th in ODIs, surpassing the mark of his idol Sachin Tendulkar – as well as six half-centuries. average 95.62. in 11 innings. Kohli looked like he wanted to be anywhere else as he collected his best player of the tournament award after the final. Eventually, he will look back on this World Cup with pride, as well as some regret that his team could not get over the line.
Team of the Tournament
There were six of the Indians who won the tournament and only two of the Australian champions were in the tournament team. There was a place for a player from the beleaguered team in Sri Lanka, pacer Dilshan Madushanka, and there was no sight of the big disappointment of the World Cup, deposed champions England, or the surprise of the tournament, Afghanistan. Team: Quinton de Kock (South Africa), Rohit Sharma (India), Virat Kohli (India), Daryl Mitchell (New Zealand), KL Rahul (India), Glenn Maxwell (Australia), Ravindra Jadeja (India ), Jasprit Bumrah (India), Dilshan Madushanka (Sri Lanka), Adam Zampa (Australia), Mohammed Shami (India).
Moment of the Tournament
Glenn Maxwell’s terrifying 201 not out against Afghanistan is widely regarded as the greatest knock in World Cup history and one of the greatest ever in cricket. He ended up barely being able to move because his legs were cramping up and he was like a golfer fleeinga moving ball. Fittingly, it ended when he smashed the ball over the equator for six games. “Ridiculous,” was how Australian captain Pat Cummins summed it up. “It has to be the biggest thing that’s ever happened.” It was his 11th double hundred in ODIs, but the first in a team pursuit.
There is a long list of players for whom this is likely to be their last World Cup. De Kock announced before the tournament that he would be retiring from the format and signed off in style with 594 runs in 10 at an average of 59.40 for the Proteas, only Kohli scoring more. Another opener, David Warner, is in the middle of a long farewell to international cricket and ended his ODI career with another World Cup medal. Afghanistan fast bowler Naveen-ul-Haq and England left-arm quick David Willey were among the lesser-known players who have already ended their ODI careers, while Sharma (aged 36) and Ben Stokes (32 years old) is injury prone. great people who will not be seen again in the competition.

The men’s cricket tournament has gone, for the first time, to the United States as the ICC looks to break new ground and expand into new markets. Next year’s Twenty20 World Cup will be co-hosted by the USA and the Caribbean from June 4-30, with Grand Prairie outside Dallas, Broward County in Florida and Nassau County, New York, hosting matches in venues America.
