Rohit Sharma-led India defeated Kane Williamson-led New Zealand by 70 runs in the first semifinal of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
In the second semifinal of the mega tournament, five-time champion Australia won a close encounter by three wickets and booked their place in the final, which will be played on November 19.
It will be a repeat of the 2003 final where India and Australia face off against each other; however, the Aussies won that final in 2003, and this time Men in Blue will aim to take their revenge in this year’s ODI World Cup final.
