The Australian newspaper’s headline captures the nation’s mood: Aussies Conquer India, World. The team shocked the bookies’ favorite, India, and won the title by six wickets in front of a nearly full crowd at the largest stadium in the world in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. According to the International Cricket Council, Australia will receive $US4 million ($6.1 million) and India will receive $US2 million. This prize money matches the amount awarded in the 2019 tournament, which was the highest so far.
“Defeating the previously unbeaten India in front of their passionate home fans is an accomplishment that rivals any of Australia’s five previous victories in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup finals,” said Nick Hockley, CEO of Cricket Australia, in a statement.

Australia has achieved a remarkable feat in the world of cricket, becoming the first nation to hold both the ICC World Test Championship and the Men’s Cricket World Cup simultaneously. This historic achievement was sealed with a victory over India in the World Test Championship final at The Oval in London in June.
Not only that, but the Australian women’s team has also made their mark by holding the ICC Women’s World Cup and T20 World Cup trophies. The men and women’s national sides have further solidified their dominance by holding the Ashes titles, the prestigious test cricket series played between Australia and England.
Pat Cummins, the captain of the Australian team, described this win as the “pinnacle” of international cricket. He expressed his gratitude for the team’s hard work throughout the year, which included tours to India, the Ashes, and the World Test Championship. Cummins emphasized that these moments would be cherished for a lifetime.
The local Australian media has showered praise on Travis Head, the batsman who played a crucial role in the victory by scoring 137 runs. The Sydney Morning Herald newspaper hailed his performance as the driving force behind Australia’s “glory over India.”
