Rohit Sharma reflects on the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final: ‘We gave it our all’

1 min read

In the World Cup final against Australia, Rohit Sharma expressed his desire for his team to have scored 20-30 more runs while batting. He also wished for a larger partnership between KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, and ideally a score of 270-280. India managed a modest 240 after they were put in to bat, with half-centuries from Kohli and Rahul. However, the Australia bowlers’ excellent bowling on a slow pitch restricted the hosts, and their batters then chased it down with 42 balls remaining, led by a match-winning 137 from Travis Head. Despite the loss, Rohit Sharma expressed pride in the team’s performance throughout the tournament. He acknowledged that they were not good enough on the day of the final but commended the team’s efforts. He mentioned the need for a bigger partnership between Rahul and Kohli and emphasized the importance of batting as long as possible in order to reach a score of 270-280. Ultimately, Australia’s ability to stitch a big partnership after the early wickets was highlighted as a key factor in their victory.
