Ahmedabad. The ODI World Cup 2023, being hosted by India, has now reached its final stage. The final match for the World Cup will be played tomorrow on Sunday between India and Australia at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This will be the second time when both the teams will face each other in the World Cup final. Earlier in 2003, under the captaincy of Saurabh Ganguly, the Indian team had faced the Kangaroos in the final of the World Cup. Then India had to face a crushing defeat. This title match was played in Johannesburg, South Africa. Now after 20 years, once again both the teams will face each other in the final of the ODI World Cup.
The Indian team would like to avenge the defeat suffered 20 years ago. But now after 20 years, both the teams have completely changed. Now the command of the Indian team is in the hands of Rohit Sharma. While the captaincy of the Kangaroo team is being handled by fast bowler Pat Cummins. However, India has both the chance and the potential to win the World Cup. First of all, Team India is running in great rhythm in its home ground. On the other hand, it has reached the finals after winning 10 consecutive matches. In such a situation, the Indian team will not leave any chance this time to win the World Cup for India.
Kangaroo captain prepared a special plan for Rahit-Virat
Before the final match, Australian captain Pat Cummins held a press conference. During this, he said that he has a special plan to dismiss Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. However, he admitted that he would have to stay away from Shami. Regarding winning the World Cup, Pat Cummins said that if we can achieve it then it will be a big victory. It would be a great pleasure if I can lift the trophy with this group of talented people.
Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will have to perform better
Cummins said the pitch looks very good, it has been used before in the tournament also. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood should perform well in the final. The Indian team gets tremendous support in Ahmedabad and this was seen in the match against Pakistan in the World Cup. Regarding this, Cummins said that India is a very good team. The crowd is obviously going to be one-sided (in support of India). Regarding the toss, Cummins said that the toss will not be as important as it is in Mumbai. Let us tell you that in the semi-final match between India and New Zealand, the role of toss was very important and after winning the toss, India also won the match.
