Ishan Kishan's Heartfelt Message After World Cup Final Loss: "Memories and Emotions Will Stay With Us Forever
Indian keeper-batsman Ishan Kishan penned a touching message after Team India suffered a disappointing defeat in the ICC World Cup 2023 final. He said it was a special time to be with the team in the last month as they built. So many memories. India was one of the most dominant teams in the ICC World Cup 2023. They played like champions throughout the tournament but succumbed to the pressure in the final. The Man in Blue suffered a 7-wicket defeat against Australia in Ahmedabad and broke nearly a billion hearts.
This past month or so with this team has been special. The memories created and emotions we have felt will stay with us forever. We can’t thank you enough for your undying love and support. The way the fans and country have united behind us has been surreal. pic.twitter.com/oKyHzq3qez— Ishan Kishan (@ishankishan51) November 20, 2023
Almost every player played a part in the tournament and participated in crucial moments. Ishan Kishan played the first two matches for the team and contributed well. Apart from that, there were some great performances but it didn't mean much as they failed when it mattered the most. In the big final, India were bowled out for just 240 runs as they struggled to get going and lost wickets at regular intervals. They failed to score runs quickly as the wicket did not suit them and besides Australia bowled brilliantly.
With the ball, India got off to a good start as they bowled out Australia for 47/3 but after that, they couldn't take wickets as the opposition chased down the target with 6 wickets in hand. Travis Head (132) scored a brutal century while Marnus Lebuschagne (58*) also played a brilliant knock.
Been almost 16 hours but still hurts like it did last night. Sometimes giving your everything isn’t enough. We fell short of our ultimate goal but every step in this journey has been a testament to our team’s spirit and dedication. To our incredible fans, your unwavering support… pic.twitter.com/CvnA0puhDg— Shubman Gill (@ShubmanGill) November 20, 2023
