Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell’s Light-Hearted Moment in IND vs AUS 2023 World Cup Final
Ahmedabad, November 19, 2023 – In a heartwarming display of camaraderie, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell shared a light moment during the 2023 World Cup final clash between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
In a video making rounds on social media, Maxwell can be seen playfully throwing the ball towards the striker’s end, immediately giving a warning to Kohli, who skillfully defended himself just in time. The two cricket stars then embraced each other, exchanging smiles that resonated beyond the intense competition on the field.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) captured this delightful moment with the caption, “It’s all fun and games.” The video has since garnered attention and appreciation from cricket enthusiasts worldwide.
The camaraderie between Kohli and Maxwell goes beyond national boundaries, as both players represent the same Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). While Kohli has been a stalwart for RCB since the inaugural season, Maxwell joined the team in 2021. Despite being teammates in the IPL, they found themselves on opposite sides in the highly anticipated World Cup final.
In the cricketing action, India set a challenging target of 241 runs for Australia in the final. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli played pivotal roles, scoring half-centuries and forming a crucial partnership. However, Australia’s Mitchell Starc proved instrumental with the ball, finishing with figures of 3/55.
As the World Cup final unfolds, India aims for its third ODI World Cup trophy, having previously triumphed in 1983 and 2011. Australia, pursuing their sixth World Cup title, faces a formidable challenge against the unbeaten Indian side.
