With the Cricket World Cup 2023 reaching its pinnacle at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad this Sunday, anticipation is building not only for the epic showdown between India and Australia but also for the closing ceremony.
While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not officially confirmed a closing ceremony, rumours suggest that pop sensation Dua Lipa could grace the event with her presence and performance.
During an interaction with World Cup semi-finalists, including cricketers like Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, and Kane Williamson, Dua Lipa was questioned about her potential song choice for the World Cup opening and closing ceremonies. In response, she revealed that she would perform the song ‘Physical’.
Despite Dua Lipa’s hint about her involvement, the BCCI has not officially confirmed the plans for the closing ceremony. The uncertainty adds an element of suspense to whether the pop star will indeed grace the grand event in Ahmedabad.
While details about the closing ceremony remain unconfirmed, it has been officially reported that the Indian Air Force will treat spectators to a thrilling air show at the Narendra Modi Stadium before the start of the final match. The Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team is set to enthrall the audience with a ten-minute display, with rehearsals scheduled for Friday and Saturday.

As cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the conclusion of the Cricket World Cup 2023, the potential inclusion of Dua Lipa in the closing ceremony remains a hot topic. The Indian Air Force’s planned air show promises to be a captivating spectacle, enhancing the grandeur of the much-anticipated final.
