The festive mood is doubled in India as the nation is celebrating the festival of lights, Diwali, along with the euphoria of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 that is being held in India. As the home nation has stormed its way into the semi-finals, the whole nation is brimming with excitement as the glory is just two steps closer.

To celebrate the twin occasion, the Gateway of India was lit up with a light and laser show for the people of Mumbai to celebrate the World Cup taking place in India. The arch-monument of Mumbai was lit up with a laser show around the theme of Cricket highlighting some of the key moments of the World Cup.

India is a place where Cricket is considered to be a religion and the people of India love their Cricket. A Cricket World Cup taking place in India is a big occasion and as the World Cup is moving towards its business end with India making it to the knockout stage closer to Diwali, calls for a celebration.

India is set to face New Zealand in knockouts

India has already qualified for the semi-finals and is most likely to face New Zealand in the semi-finals on November 15th in Mumbai. India is currently sitting comfortably at the top of the points table by winning all 8 matches. They are set to face to face the Netherlands in their last league match in Bengaluru on Diwali but the result of the match won’t bear any change in India’s position in the points table.

India lost the semi-finals in 2019 to New Zealand in a rain-affected match at Manchester and will look to avenge that defeat in Mumbai on 15th November. Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been an iconic venue in Mumbai and will be buzzing on the 15th for one of the marquee matches of the tournament.
