NEW DELHI: India captain Rohit Sharma and Player of the Tournament Virat Kohli broke down in tears after a painful defeat to Australia in the final of the World Cup in Ahmedabad on November 19.
The Men in Blue’s crushing six-wicket loss to Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium saddened Rohit, who led the team with determination. Kohli, who scored the most runs in the competition and was named player of the tournament, was also devastated by the loss.
Rohit and Virat were seen leaving the pitch with tears in their eyes. Notably, hosts India had an outstanding record, registering 10 consecutive victories, leading up to the final. Kohli’s brilliance with the bat was a defining feature of the tournament, with India’s number three scoring at least a half-century in nine of his 11 innings. His 765 runs in the tournament is the most ever scored by an individual batter at a men’s World Cup, surpassing the previous record set by Sachin Tendulkar, who hit 673 in the 2003 tournament.
