India and Australia are to compete in the final match of Cricket World Cup 2023. This final match will be played on 19 November (Sunday) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad from 2 pm Indian time. The Indian team will try to become world champion for the third time. Australia will try its best to win the title for the sixth time.
Former Team India player Ravi Shastri has said something big regarding the final match. Shastri believes that the first 10 overs of both the innings will be very important and will determine the match. Shastri said that star batsman Virat Kohli can play a century in the final match also.
Have to be careful with these players!
Ravi Shastri told Times of India, ‘I think the first 10 overs are very important. India has got some great starts, especially Rohit has shown great performance in the top order. This makes a lot of difference. Similarly, if Australia also gets such a start, they will get a lot of confidence. David Warner, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh are dangerous players.
Shastri said about Virat Kohli, ‘The kind of form Virat is in, he is writing his own script. It should not be a surprise if he scores another century with his bat. He did this in the semi-finals and he can do the same in the finals as well. There is nothing bigger than the final match.
…when Shastri was disappointed
Shastri says, when I was a coach, I was very disappointed that such a great team could not win the World Cup. Before leaving I told the players that you deserve to win the World Cup. The time will come, stay focused and persevere. That time has now come. Rohit is a legend of limited overs cricket. It would not be good for Rohit to end his career without winning the World Cup. Six or seven players have the last chance to win the World Cup.
Regarding India’s bowling unit, Shastri said, ‘This is the best fast bowling attack India has ever seen in white ball cricket. There are three excellent fast bowlers and then there are good spinners in the form of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav. The skill set is great, it gives you a lot of variety. They don’t need a pitch that suits them. India can perform brilliantly anywhere in the world with this attack.
