The 2023 ODI World Cup has finally come to an end with Australia winning the elusive trophy for the sixth time. Pat Cummins and Co. defeated hosts India by 6 wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Dominating the batting and bowling, the Kangaroos handed the Men in Blue another heartbreak in a major international tournament.
After opting to field first, the Australian bowlers bowled out the Indian batting unit for just 240 runs. Rohit Sharma's quick-fire innings and half-centuries from Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were pivotal in India's batting innings. However, a sensational performance from Travis Head saw Australia cross the target in 43 overs. The southpaw notched up a brilliant hundred to give his team a clinical victory.
Champions Australia will take home 4 million US dollars (approximately Rs 33 crore) while runners-up India will get 2 million US dollars (approximately 16 crore). The losing semi-finalists - South Africa and New Zealand - received 800,000 US dollars (Rs 6 crore approximately) each from the total prize pot of $10 million.
The winners of each of the 45 group stage matches received $40,000 (Rs 33 lakh approximately). Meanwhile, the six teams that did not qualify for the semi-finals received a payment of $100,000 (Rs 82 lakh approximately).
