The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 final is set to witness the all-exciting clash of the cricketing giants, Team India and Australia, on Sunday, November 19 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Both the powerhouses have been in tremendous form heading into the marquee clash of the 2023 World Cup.
The hosts have asserted dominance in the tournament so far. They have been unbeaten, winning 10 out of their 10 games. The Rohit Sharma-led team defeated New Zealand in the semi-final in Mumbai by 70 runs. On the other hand, Australia started off on a poor note, losing their first two matches. However, they made a comeback in the following game against Sri Lanka. Since then, they have been on an eight-match winning streak. Players from both teams will be eyeing several records to break in the final clash.
On that note, let’s take a look at the records that could be broken in the World Cup final between India and Australia.
Records that can be broken in the 2023 World Cup Final
– Team India has won all of their 10 matches in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 so far. If they win the final, they will equal Australia’s record for most wins in a single World Cup edition. Australia won 11 games in the 2003 and 2007 editions.
– Rohit Sharma has scored 550 runs in the tournament so far. He needs 29 more runs to break Kane Williamson’s record of most runs in a single World Cup edition by a captain. Williamson scored 578 runs in the 2019 edition.
– The Indian skipper also needs to score 72 runs in the final to become the fastest to 1600 World Cup runs. Tendulkar achieved the feat in 29 innings, while Rohit will be playing his 28th innings in the final.
– David Warner needs 75 runs in the final to become the second-fastest ever to score 7000 runs in the format, and the fastest for Australia. The overall record is held by Hashim Amla, while for Australia, Ricky Ponting is currently the quickest.
– Virat Kohli has 1741 runs across ODI World Cups so far. He needs just three more runs to overtake Ricky Ponting to become the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament. The former Australian cricketer has scored 1743 runs in ODI World Cups.
