Australia won the ODI World Cup finals on Sunday, November 19, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Travis Head’s astounding century led to a six-wicket victory over India, marking a historic moment in the stadium’s history. The match was played in front of a passionate home crowd, and Australia’s win secured their sixth ODI World Cup title, highlighting the cricket-loving culture of South Asian nations.
Despite losing three wickets for 47 runs while chasing a target of 241, Head displayed unwavering resilience and launched a spirited counterattack, scoring an impressive 137 off 120 balls, ultimately tilting the balance decisively in favour of the Kangaroos. The triumph spoiled the World Cup 2023 hosting celebration for India.
However, the joy of the victory was overshadowed by a concerning incident on social media. After the match, Travis Head received online abuse from disappointed Indian fans who expressed their anger in the comment section of his Instagram post. Shockingly, some people went too far by using abusive language towards Head’s wife and one-year-old daughter.
