The highly anticipated finale of the ICC World Cup 2023 is set to take place today between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Both teams have fought hard to make it to this stage, with India winning all 10 matches played in the tournament and Australia bouncing back from early defeats to win seven consecutive matches in the group stage.
India secured their spot in the final after defeating New Zealand by 70 runs in the semi-final, while Australia booked their place by overcoming South Africa by three wickets. The match is expected to be a thrilling contest between two cricket powerhouses.
Fans can catch all the action on Star Sports Network channels as well as the Disney+ Hotstar website and app. The toss will take place at 1:30 pm, followed by the match at 2 pm.
The Narendra Modi Stadium, the largest cricket stadium in the world, is expected to be packed to its full capacity of over 1.3 lakh spectators. The pitch, which has seen three successful chases so far in the tournament, is expected to favor both the batsmen and the fielders.
With India's strong bowling led by Mohammed Shami and Australia's formidable batting lineup, including the likes of David Warner and Steve Smith, it remains to be seen which team will lift the coveted World Cup trophy. Who will emerge victorious? Only time will tell.
