It Still Hurts": Shubman Gill Shares Heartfelt Message After India's World Cup Final Defeat
Indian opener Shubman Gill has reacted for the first time after India's defeat against Australia in the World Cup final. India suffered a heartbreaking defeat against Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final. The stage was set at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad where the Man in Blue was put into bat after Pat Cummins won the toss. India's powerplay was really good after skipper Rohit Sharma got off to a good start but Shubman Gill returned to the pavilion with just four runs.
Rohit Sharma scored 47 runs off 31 balls and hit four boundaries and three sixes in his innings. However, after his dismissal, India lost Shreyas Iyer in no time and the pressure mounted on KL Rahul and Virat Kohli leading to a disastrous middle over for India. India scored 240 runs in their 50 overs and Australia chased down the target with seven overs to spare to win their sixth World Cup title.
After India lost to Australia in the final, Shubman Gill wrote a heartfelt message on his social media. He said, "It's been almost 16 hours, but it still hurts like last night. Sometimes giving your all is not enough. We are far from our ultimate goal but every step in this journey is a testament to our team spirit and dedication. Our amazing To the fans, your unwavering support through our highs and lows means the world to us. This is not the end, it won't end until we win. Jai Hind"
