In a thrilling journey through the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, India has emerged as the most dominant team, reaching the final unbeaten. Australia, a record five-time winner, overcame two initial defeats to secure a spot in the title clash with an impressive eight consecutive wins.
The history and rivalry between India and Australia add an extra layer of excitement to this final. The last time they faced off in an ICC event final was in 2003, where Ricky Ponting’s Australia claimed the title unbeaten.
This time, under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India enters the final as the favorite, boasting an impressive streak of 10 consecutive victories. Their commanding performance against opponents has set the stage for their quest for a third-ever ODI world title.
For cricket enthusiasts eager to catch the action, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final is scheduled for November 19th at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The toss is set for 1:30 PM IST, with the contest kicking off at 2 PM IST.
India secured their spot in the final by defeating New Zealand in the first semi-final in Mumbai, while Australia completed the line-up with a hard-fought win over South Africa in Kolkata.
In case of a tie in the final, a Super Over will determine the winner. However, if the Super Over also ends in a tie, unlike the 2019 World Cup final, this time, a clear winner will be decided without resorting to boundary counts.
To ensure the completion of the match, a reserve day is in place. If the final cannot conclude on the scheduled date, it will resume on November 20th from the point of interruption. If, unfortunately, the reserve day faces the same fate, and the match cannot be completed, the two finalists will be declared joint winners.
