Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team is performing pretty well in the ongoing ICC ODI World Cup 2023 which is being held in India this time. India has already won its first two matches, the first was against Australia and the second one was against Afghanistan and now it will play its third match on 14 Oct at Ahmedabad against arch-rivals, Pakistan.
The match between India and Pakistan is one of the most awaited games of the tournament as their matches are quite intense and exciting. India has won the ODI World Cup two times, first time in 1983 and second time in 2011. The 2011 WC was also held in India and India managed to reach the finals after defeating Pakistan in the semi-finals which was played in Mohali. Recently Virender Sehwag narrated an incident related to the match and it is quite interesting.
Sachin Tendulkar was the highest scorer for India with 85 runs, while everyone was sad that Little Master missed his century by 15 runs, his teammate Virender Sehwag was a happy man. Viru paaji said that when Sachin returned to the dressing room after getting out, he was sitting outside and he gave a smile to Sachin who returned it with a smile.
Sehwag said that after some time, Sachin Tendulkar came to him and said that he knew what Viru was thinking. Virender Sehwag asked Sachin to tell what he knew and he said that Viru was happy that he had not scored a century otherwise the team would have lost the match. Sehwag told Sachin that he read his heart because Sachin scored two centuries, one match India lost and the other got tied.
Virender Sehwag thanks God that Sachin Tendulkar didn’t score a century and they won the match.
India then defeated Sri Lanka in the finals to lift the trophy and everyone hopes that Rohit Sharma led Indian squad will certainly lift the trophy and end the 10 yrs drought of the ICC trophy.
All the best team India!
