Wasim Akram roots India’s Ahmedabad heartache to media expectations

Wasim Akram roots India’s Ahmedabad heartache to media expectations. “You accept your mistake too,” said Akram while commenting on Indian fans and media.

Wasim Akram, the legendary Pakistani cricketer, blamed fans, social media, and television networks for declaring India World Cup victors before the final match versus Australia. India’s outstanding success in winning 10 consecutive games has made them the favorite to win a third crown. However, the India’s Ahmedabad heartache at Narendra Modi Stadium on November 19 destroyed numerous hopes.

The twist came early when Aussie skipper Pat Cummins opted to bowl after winning the toss in the final. This strategic move showcased the tactical brilliance of the Australians, throwing the game off the predicted trajectory. The Australian pacers, spearheaded by Cummins, throttled India in the middle overs, restricting them to a mere four boundaries between overs 11 to 40. Despite Rohit Sharma’s aggressive start, India struggled to reach 240 on a sluggish track.

“I understand that it will be difficult for your country to recover because your team performed so well throughout the tournament.” They won ten consecutive games, demonstrating consistency. But, thanks to television, social media, and supporters, India has already won the World Cup. I apologize for your error as well. Because they were playing so brilliantly, you gave them more hope. It’s not all your fault. They were playing excellent cricket. But it all came down to one terrible game. “Australia deserves credit,” Akram stated on Star Sports.

Australia silenced the roaring Indian crowd at Ahmedabad

Among all of this, Travis Head’s outstanding batting stole the show. With his century, he became only the third Australian to do it in a World Cup final. Australia’s evaluation of the conditions was bang on; they predicted that the black dirt pitch would not degrade as quickly as the red one. The pitch eased out as predicted owing to dew and increased wetness, which favored the Aussies.

The deafening stillness in Ahmedabad, as well as the emotions of nearly a billion Indian supporters worldwide, carried the weight of this unexpected reversal. The keen knowledge of the conditions, as well as their implementation, muted the roaring expectation, leaving a nation stunned.
