Anushka Sharma, wife of star cricketer Virat Kohli, had previously praised her husband for his record-breaking 50th ODI century in the first semi-final of the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023.
In the all-important World Cup 2023 final, India’s batting lineup struggled as Australia’s pacers restricted the hosts to 240 at the Narendra Modi stadium.
Australia’s captain Pat Cummins won the toss and chose to bowl in the final clash of the ICC World Cup 2023 against India.
