Team India is disappointed with the unexpected defeat in the final of the ODI World Cup-2023. Although they played brilliantly from the beginning with the determination to win the cup on their home soil, they faced defeat in the actual battle. With this, the dream of winning the ODI World Cup once again after Pushkarakalam remains a dream.
After the defeat by Australia in Ahmedabad, the fans as well as the players were heartbroken. Captain Rohit Sharma, star batsman Virat Kohli and all the other players were very emotional.
Unable to digest the way they fell on the final step, they went to the dressing room, drowning their grief. They sat like that in despair. However, fielding coach T. Dileep tried to lighten the solemn atmosphere.
Continuing the tradition introduced during the World Cup-2023, he presented the best fielder medal in the final match as well. The award went to top run-scorer Virat Kohli in Sunday’s final against the Aussies in Ahmedabad.
However, Dileep, who always announces the winner in an innovative way, this time announced Kohli’s name in a simple way. All the players who were suffering from defeat sat down in despair and Dileep tried to cheer them up with an inspirational speech.
“It’s a difficult time. A sad day for all of us. However, there is no lack of effort in us. Everyone worked hard to win. But the result was not in our favor.
But, as Rahul Bhaiya said, all our fans are proud of you. We know how hard each and every player in this team has worked during the practice session.
Your dedication and commitment to the game is to be appreciated. You tried your best to win. What more do you need? They played very well,” said Dilip praising Team India.
Later, Ravindra Jadeja placed the medal around Kohli’s neck. Meanwhile, Dileep presented medals to the players who showed excellent performance in fielding in the World Cup event. Kohli won twice, Shreyas Iyer won twice, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma and others also received medals. It is known that in the final against the Aussies, Kohli caught the catch given by the opener David Warner in Shami’s bowling.
