Celebrations in Australia after 6th World Cup Win

Australia clinched their 6th ODI World Cup title after beating India by 6 wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium, the largest stadium in the world, in front of a blue sea of Indian supporters. The win against a dominated India team at their home turf shows the mettle of the strong Australian psyche and their championship DNA that elevates their performance on the big stage.

The India team, which held the top position in the leader board before the finals, in the World Cup fizzled out at the biggest stage and their dream run ended with a loss in the finals against a relentless Australia. Australian fans and former players are delighted by the team’s performance and termed it as one of the finest victories in their sporting history.

Former Australian swashbuckling opener and 3 times World Cup winner Adam Gilchrist term lauded the Australian team’s World Cup campaign for their grit and their ability to bounce back in away conditions. Gilchrist expressed his emotions on 'X' and went on to write, “So proud of this Australian team and crew, to win another World Cup in the manner and circumstance they have is one of the finest victories in our sporting history I reckon. "Time to celebrate” he added.

Hockley praises Australia's victory

Nick Hockley who is the chief executive of Cricket Australia also praised the Pat Cummins-led Australian team for the World Cup win. He stated that winning such a prestigious tournament by beating a dominant Indian side at their home in front of such a massive crowd takes skill and execution of the highest order and the Australian team has it in them to win such a big tournament in such difficult circumstances.

In a formal statement by Cricket Australia, he wrote, “This is another wonderful achievement by Pat Cummins and his team who have performed brilliantly in testing conditions and against strong opposition throughout the tournament,".

To beat the previously undefeated India before their passionate home fans is an achievement that sits comfortably alongside any of Australia's five previous ICC Men's Cricket World Cup finals victories." Nick Hockley further added, “Together with the retention of both the men's and women's Ashes and a sixth victory in the ICC Women's T20 World Cup, there is so much to celebrate as we head towards another exciting summer of international cricket,".

Australian team’s former World Cup-winning coach and player Darren Lehman also congratulated the Australian team for their 6th ODI World Cup title.
