cricket

GUYANA: November 19, 2023, Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, 1.30 lakh spectators in blue jerseys and twice as many fans outside the stadium from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are teaming up in India with the firm belief that they will win all ten matches in the World Cup in a row. But that day, the whole country was shocked by Australia's professionalism and India's bad luck and returned to witness the Aussies lift their sixth World Cup.

It took days for the players and the cricket fans to get over the depression caused by that defeat. The Indian cricket team is currently playing in the Twenty20 World Cup in America and the West Indies. They defeated Ireland, Pakistan and USA in the group stage to qualify for the Super Eight.

India has to play three matches in the Super Eight. One of them was actually against the Australian cricket team. On Monday, June 24 at eight o'clock Indian time, the battle of cricket's greats will be held at the Darren Sammy Stadium in St. Lucia. The fans are worried and worried that India will take revenge for the defeat in their own country in the World Cup final or will they knock in front of Australia in another World Cup match.

India's first two matches in the Super Eight are against the Group C winners at Kensington Oval in Barbados on June 20 and Antigua on June 22 against the Group D runners-up. India will face Australia in their final Super Eight match. The top two teams in the two-group Super Eight will advance to the semi-finals. Hence, the possibility of an India-Australia final in this World Cup cannot be ruled out.
