Travis Head won the ‘Player of the Match’ award in the final. Virat Kohli was awarded the ‘Player of the Tournament’ of ICC World Cup 2023.
The ICC World Cup 2023 has successfully finished with Australia securing their sixth ODI World Cup title after beating India by six wickets in the final. Australia has become the first non-hosting nation since 2007 to lift the World Cup trophy.
India, riding unbeaten throughout the campaign, have now lost their second World Cup final against the Aussies. Virat Kohli, the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 765 runs, gifted his jersey to his IPL teammate and Australia’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell. They both also met and hugged each other after the match.
Although Kohli scored his fifth consecutive 50 plus score in the campaign, India still couldn’t reach the 300-run mark and was bowled out at 240 runs. Australia, chasing the target of 241 runs, saved their best innings for the last. Travis Head came as a saviour with his scintillating century of 137 runs and led Australia to World Cup glory.
Head also won the ‘Player of the Match’ award in the final and in the semi-final for scoring 62 runs and taking 2/21 against South Africa. After scoring three hundreds, Kohli was awarded the ‘Player of the Tournament’ of ICC World Cup 2023.
