India will be tough to stop them in World Cup final: Sourav Ganguly. “India is looking smashing at the moment,” Ganguly added, wishing India success in the World Cup finals in Ahmedabad.
Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has backed Rohit Sharma’s team to beat Australia in the final match. He stressed the need of sustaining their constant style of play during the World Cup 2023. Ganguly emphasized the need of India replicating their cricketing style for victory in the title match, which will take place in Ahmedabad on November 19.
India dominated the group stage, finishing first with an amazing 18 points from nine wins. Their outstanding net run rate of 2.570 was the best among all teams. Recognizing India’s formidable form, Ganguly emphasized the difficulty of defeating such a strong team in the finals.

“India is looking fantastic right now.” I wish them the best of luck in Ahmedabad. India has performed admirably throughout the competition. Only one match and Australia standing between them and the World Cup crown. If India continues to play as they have so far in the competition, it would be difficult to stop them. “It will be a good match because Australia has a good team. ” Ganguly told reporters on Friday, according to India Today.
