The 2023 World Cup finals are underway at the world’s biggest stadium, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. With the Aussies having won the toss, the Men in Blue were asked to bat first. Like always, Rohit Sharma started brilliantly, but unfortunately was dismissed by Glenn Maxwell at 47. With Shubman Gill getting dismissed at 4, Shreyas Iyer was also dismissed for 4 by Australia skipper Pat Cummins. Having played a knock of 54 runs, Virat Kohli’s wicket was picked by Pat Cummins again.
A loud cheer for King Kohli
Having smashed 54 runs off 63 deliveries, he smashed 4 boundaries at a strike rate of 85.71. Virat Kohli, being in his stupendous form, yet again smashed a fifty for team India, which was his 9th half century of the 2023 World Cup tournament. With his wife Anushka Sharma and all the fans present at the stadium cheering for Kohli, the King reckoned on yet another powerful knock for the Men in Blue.
After he hit his 9th fifty of the tournament, the crowd cheering at the stadium stood at 121 decibels, which is actually way too loud. No wonder, more than half of the crowd present at the stadium would be cheering for Kohli, given the fact that he has registered several records during the tournament, with one of them being the highest run getter in the 2023 World Cup.
Kohli’s wicket results in damp silence
After Kohli got his wicket picked up by Pat Cummins with the ball hitting the stumps, a wave of pin drop silence could be felt at the stadium with the crowd getting still all at once. The stillness at the stadium could be felt by every Indian fan with Kohli’s wicket aching like a sword. With Kohli as the only batsman left in form for team India, it is yet to witness the target that is going to be posted by the Men in Blue. In order to win the final clash, it is significantly imperative for team India to play carefully, with now the bowling unit having a major role to perform.
