Indian opener Shubman Gill has reacted for the first time after India’s loss to Australia in the World Cup final. India suffered a heartbreaking defeat against Australia in the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The stage was set at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad where the Men In Blue was put into bat by Pat Cummins after he won the toss. India had a really good powerplay after skipper Rohit Sharma gave a terrific start but Shubman Gill went back to the pavilion early after scoring just four runs.
Rohit Sharma scored 47 off 31 balls and slammed four boundaries and three maximums in his innings. However, after his dismissal, India lost Shreyas Iyer in no time and the pressure mounted on KL Rahul and Virat Kohli which led to a disastrous middle-over phase for India. India crawled to 240 in their 50 overs and Australia chased down the target with seven overs to spare to win the World Cup title for a record-extending sixth time.
Shubman Gill penned down a heartfelt message on his social media after India lost to Australia in the finals. He stated, “Been almost 16 hours but still hurts like it did last night. Sometimes giving your everything isn’t enough. We fell short of our ultimate goal but every step in this journey has been a testament to our team’s spirit and dedication. To our incredible fans, your unwavering support in our highs and lows means the world to us. This isn’t the end, it’s not over until we win. Jai Hind”

Shubman Gill did not have an auspicious tournament with the bat. The 24-year-old youngster could only manage 354 runs in nine innings at an average of 44.25. Shubman was out of the squad for the first two matches as he was suffering from dengue but returned to the playing XI in the match against Pakistan.
However, there is no denying the fact that Shubman Gill is India’s latest prodigy and this is just a start for him. Shubman is the leading run-getter in ODIs this year and has also registered a double-century against New Zealand. The young Indian opener has a bright future ahead of him but he will have to maintain consistency in order to flourish.
