World Cup Final: Player of the Tournament, Player of the Match, top run-scorer and more awards and winnersNovember 20,2023
Australia defeated India by six wickets in the final of the 2023 Cricket World Cup in Ahmedabad on Sunday to clinch a record sixth title.
The Men in Blue may have been favourites to lift the title under home conditions, but the Aussie pace trio of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc teamed up to dismiss India for 240.
In reply, despite a shaky start when Australia were 47/3 at one stage, Travis Head (137) and Marnus Labuschagne (58*) forged a century-run stand to eventually take the visitors home with seven overs to spare.
Several awards were given away following the conclusion of the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
Despite ending up on the losing side, Virat Kohli, who broke a couple of notable records of Sachin Tendulkar, bagged some of these awards. Kohli had broken Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most ODI hundreds with a 106-ball century against New Zealand in the semi-final, while also having amassed 765 runs this World Cup, the most by any batter in a single edition of the competition.
