Pakistan cricketers laud Australia’s World Cup victory

Australia clinched their sixth 50-overs World Cup title, setting a new record, as opener Travis Head’s remarkable century paved the way for their six-wicket triumph in the final against India, the tournament’s in-form team. 

Opting to bat first, India managed a modest total of 240 all out in 50 overs, with KL Rahul and Virat Kohli contributing battling half-centuries at the crowded Narendra Modi Stadium.

Although Australia faced a shaky start in their top order, Travis Head’s stellar 137 off 120 balls ensured they comfortably chased down the target with seven overs to spare. 

The match, unfortunately, failed to reach the anticipated heights. The 132,000-capacity stadium witnessed a majority of the audience sitting in stunned silence as the home team, previously unbeaten in the tournament with 10 consecutive victories, suffered their first loss in the crucial summit clash.

Reacting to Australia’s win, Pakistan cricketers took to social media platform ‘X’, to congratulate the Australia team.

– Well deserved win by team Australia, team India had an excellent run throughout the #ICCWorldCup2023 but I have always said that team Australia performs the best under pressure, and they proved that yet again today in the #CWC23Final pic.twitter.com/qPl6qwGMsX
