In a heartbreaking episode unfolded at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, home favourites, the Indian cricket team lost the ICC Mens ODI Cricket World Cup 2023 finals to mighty Australia, thus putting an end to its 10-game record winning streak.
Right from the first ball, Australia unleashed dominance, and never once in the entire 100-over contest did they give India a chance to bounce back. Travis Head's salient hundred on the eve of the epic clash sealed the fate of the Rohit Sharma-led side.
The atmosphere was crestfallen as a couple of Indian players broke down in tears while exiting the field. Their tears resonated with every fans' feeling spread across different parts of the world.
Ahead of the finals, WWE star Drew McIntyre had lent his support to Virat Kohli and the Indian side. When the batting stalwart scripted history by scoring his 50th ODI ton, Mclntyre posted a congratulatory tweet and even went on to wish India for accomplishing the finals dream.
However, as India kneeled down to the Aussies on Sunday, Drew Mclntyre's rival and WWE superstar Grayson Waller poked fun at the former by posting a tweet with images of Australia lifting the World Cup on the podium attached to it. He directly replied to Drew's earlier tweet about Kohli to make his intentions clear.
While Mclntyre is yet to react on the same, the Indian fans' anguish cannot be understated. After four years of 2019 semi-final heartbreak, the supporters hoped for a major turnaround.
What hurt them the most was that the team got hammered after having an unbeaten tournament. The impeccable performance from the entire unit reignited a strong hope amongst the passionate fanbase.
Nonetheless, Team India will be gutted yet proud of the extraordinary campaign they pulled off. The final result will haunt them for a while, but soaking up the positives is the way forward for the champion team.
