In a thrilling match at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on November 15, 2023, India emerged triumphant in the Cricket World Cup 2023, defeating New Zealand by a substantial margin of 70 runs. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, India set a formidable target of 398, powered by centuries from Virat Kohli (117) and Shreyas Iyer (105). New Zealand’s pursuit fell short as they were bowled out for 327 in 48 overs, with Mohammed Shami’s stellar performance of five wickets for 30 runs, securing India’s reach to finals.
Kohli became the first man in the history of One Day International cricket to score 50 centuries in the format as India’s relentless number three helped the team put together a first-innings score of 397/4 – enough to earn India a place in a World Cup final for the first time since 2014.
