India's hopes in the World Cup 2023 were dashed as Australia emerged victorious in a tense final showdown at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain, expressed deep disappointment after his team's loss to Pat Cummins-led Australia. Despite their earlier winning streak, India fell short in the crucial final match.

Reflecting on the defeat, Sharma admitted, "We tried everything, but it wasn't supposed to be. We were aiming for 270-280, but wickets fell at crucial moments." Despite a valiant effort, India posted a below-par score, unable to capitalize on a promising partnership between KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.

The match turned in Australia's favor as Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne's partnership proved insurmountable. Sharma acknowledged their resilience, saying, "Credit to Head and Labuschagne for an outstanding partnership that pushed us out of the game."

India's dream of securing their third World Cup title was shattered by Head's exceptional 137 and Labuschagne's supporting 58, culminating in a formidable 192-run stand. Despite Sharma's team initially disrupting the Aussie momentum with three key wickets, the remarkable partnership turned the tide decisively.

Before the final, India boasted a 10-match winning streak, making this loss even more heartbreaking. Having been bowled out for 240, it marked the first instance in the tournament that India faced such a setback.

Australia's sixth World Cup victory was solidified by a remarkable display of skill and partnership, leaving India to reflect on missed opportunities and a valiant yet unsuccessful campaign.
