Commenting on this, Sajith Sivanandan – Head, Disney+ Hotstar India said, “The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 will be remembered not just for its sporting excellence, but for the incredible passion it ignited among fans. Congratulations to both Australia and India on an incredible tournament and a heartfelt thank you to our viewers, whose passionate support has driven us to continuously elevate the live sports streaming experience.

The visitors had an incredible game with both bat and ball, as they first limited the Men in Blue to just 240 runs and later chased it down quite comfortably in 43 overs. The home team took three wickets early in the chase, which caused a minor hiccup, but the formidable Australians recovered admirably to win the trophy for a record sixth time.
