Sports, at times can be extremely cruel and can be devastating to a team and its players more than the fury of nature. This painful fact will haunt the Men in Blue forever, who were absolutely dominant until the finals of the World Cup 2023, but eventually lost to Men in Yellow in the summit clash. Just over a month ago, the Aussies found themselves languishing at the very bottom of the points table, looking like a jaded unit, which seemed cooked and short of answers. But in an amazing turnaround, they managed to win nine games on a trot to become world champions. And it was a sort of poetic justice for Australia, as after losing to India and South Africa in the league stage, they stormed their way to the WC title, defeating the same two teams. It seems that Team India was destined to lose just one game in WC 2023, but unfortunately that game happened to be the final. Nevertheless, the Men in Blue had an outstanding WC 2023 tournament and made every Indian feel proud of their brilliant performance, and they can walk with their heads high. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi often says, there are no losers in sports, but only winners and future winners.
