What happened yesterday at the World Cup 2023 final was quite unexpected.
Everybody was rooting for India, as they have been phenomenal throughout the ODI World Cup 2023, but in the final, they lost the match against Australia.
With India losing the toss, some Indian cricket fans were disappointed, while some fans saw a silver lining in the 'loss'.
India lost the toss in the 1983 and 2011 World Cup finals but went on to win the tournament on both occasions, pointed out cricket fans.
Though the prediction of fans didn't work right, as last Night, Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to bowl first. One netizen pointed out that maybe Australia made a wrong decision the way India did in the 2003 final.
Though it's quite bizarre to see, how the India of 1983 was similar to Australia of the 2023 World Cup tournament.
In 1983, India lost only two matches in the ODI format, and in the end clinched victory against West Indies at Lord's. Similarly, in the 2023 World Cup season, the Australian team also didn't start well. They lost 2 matches and then they went on a winning spree and end up winning the 2023 Cricket World Cup Championship.
The uncanny similarity between Kapil Dev and Travis Head makes you feel as if Dev's soul went inside Head!
The way he took Rohit's catch, which was similar to the catch taken by Kapil Dev in the 1983 World Cup when India Won.
India's Captain back then Kapil Dev at 57-2 in the match, took the wicket of Vivian Richards, who was in impeccable form, appeared to shift the balance in West Indies' favor. However, Kapil Dev's astonishing backward catch altered the course of the game, leading to the West Indies' downfall.
Similarly in the final, Travis Head's catch changed the course of India's batting, and the wickets kept on falling like the house of cards.
Travis Head was truly heroic in yesterday's final, and also made a century in an amazing partnership with Marnu Labuschagne, which is quite similar to Kapil Dev making a century and India winning the first ever world cup in 1983 WC!
