Fans’ hopes of a century in the final remained unfulfilled

Sachin’s record of 49 ODI centuries broken
New Delhi. Indian fans’ hopes of a century from Virat Kohli in the World Cup 2023 Final remained unfulfilled. In the title match of the tournament against Australia (India vs Australia), Virat was batting well but his innings ended at the score of 54 runs. King Kohli’s half-century was completed in 56 balls with the help of four fours. After completing the half century, everyone was expecting that Virat would not only score a century but would also play a leading role in taking the Indian team to a big score.
Unfortunately, this could not happen and after scoring 54 runs with the help of four fours in 63 balls, he was bowled by Australian captain Cummins. Cummins’s happiness was palpable after dismissing the batsman who scored the most runs in the current World Cup.
Earlier, during the final, the security of the players was breached when a Palestinian supporter broke the security and entered the field. While running, he reached star batsman Virat Kohli and tried to put his hand on his shoulder. He was caught by the ground staff and the police were also seen in action. He has been arrested.
Kangaroo captain Cummins is amazing in the final, Rohit, Kohli and Iyer are superior to everyone.
This was Virat’s ninth score of 50+ in 11 matches of World Cup 2023. In the tournament, he remained unbeaten thrice in 11 innings of 11 matches and scored 765 runs at an average of 95.62, which included three centuries and six half-centuries. He has been out on 0 once (against England). The special thing is that Virat has made this with a strike rate of 90.31 which includes 68 fours and 9 sixes.
