Blunt Admission of Rohit Sharma on the Loss of Team India in the WC Finals

Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team won every match on their way to the finals of the Cricket World Cup 2023 but failed to win the finals. A strong Australian cricket team clinched a record-extending sixth World Cup title by defeating India by six wickets. For India, their decade-long wait for a major ICC Trophy continued. After the Cricket World Cup final, Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma admitted that they lost to a better team. After the match, Rohit said, "The result has not gone our way. We were not good enough today. We tried everything, but it wasn't supposed to be. 20–30 runs more would have been good; KL and Kohli were stitching a good partnership, and we were looking at 270–280, but we kept losing wickets.”
He further said that, "When you have 240 on the board, you want to take wickets, but credit goes to Head and Labuschagne for putting us out of the game, but I feel wickets got slightly better to bat under lights. I don't want to use that as an excuse. We didn't put enough runs on the board. Credit to those two guys in the middle for putting up an outstanding partnership."
