Despite India's flawless run to the final, the Aussies emerged victorious with a six-wicket win in Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

Reflecting on the final, Rohit Sharma described it as "one bad day" for the team. He acknowledged Australia's superior performance, stating, "They had a very good day. To be honest, I don’t think we played bad cricket in that final." He emphasized that despite certain setbacks, the Australian team was "slightly better than us on that day."

The defeat in the World Cup final remains a bitter memory for Indian fans and players alike, even after almost six months. Rohit Sharma, however, hasn't let go of his dream of lifting the coveted trophy.

Rohit still dreams of a World Cup

Having started his journey in the T20 World Cup in 2007, Rohit views the 50-over World Cup as the ultimate prize. Despite missing out on the title last year, he remains determined to achieve World Cup glory with Team India.

Currently showcasing his skills in the IPL 2024 representing Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma's focus remains on the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, where he will lead the Indian team. He is determined to stick around until 2027, aiming to turn his dream into reality and secure a World Cup win for India.
