Australian Celebration: Cummins Leads Victory at ODI World Cup 2023



After leading Australia to victory in the ODI World Cup final and becoming only the fifth Australian captain to do so, Cummins acknowledged that he has “fallen in love with 50-over format all over again.” The silence that followed his dismissal of Indian batsman Virat Kohli in the final, a moment which was acknowledged as the “sweetest” of his cricketing career, was particularly memorable. Cummins also reflected on his appreciation for the ODI World Cup and its rich history, as well as the sacrifices made by the team and their families. He also emphasized the importance of taking calculated risks and praised teammate Travis Head for his exceptional performance despite playing with a broken finger. Overall, Cummins expressed pride in the team’s achievements and resilience, acknowledging the significance of winning the “pinnacle of this sport.”
