Anushka Sharma and Athiya Shetty were spotted at the Narendra Modi Stadium supporting their respective husbands, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, in the ICC World Cup 2023 final. Both Kohli and Rahul scored crucial fifties as India put up a difficult target of 240 runs for Australia.
India went into the final with an impressive 10-match winning streak. However, the pitch slowed down after the first 10 overs, making batting difficult. Rohit Sharma provided India with a quick start, but it was Kohli and Rahul’s 67-run partnership that formed the backbone of India’s innings.
After Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer fell in quick succession, Kohli and Rahul stabilized the innings. However, there was a period of over 20 overs where India did not score a single boundary, making it increasingly difficult to score runs in the final overs.
Suryakumar Yadav, who was included in the playing XI specifically for his ability to score quickly in the final overs, could only manage 18 runs off 28 balls. As a result, India finished with a below-par total of 240/9.
Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh, who is a part of the Star Sports commentary team for the final, made a remark about Anushka Sharma and Athiya Shetty’s presence at the stadium. Seeing them engaged in conversation, Harbhajan speculated about their conversation.
“I don’t know if they’re talking about cricket or films, I don’t think they know much about cricket,” Harbhajan Singh said on commentary.

The Australian bowlers put up a solid performance, with Mitchell Starc taking 3/55 and Josh Hazlewood claiming 2/60. Skipper Pat Cummins also picked up two wickets, including the crucial wicket of Virat Kohli. India’s Mohammed Siraj hit a crucial boundary in the final over to take India’s total to 240. Australia now needs 241 runs to win their sixth World Cup title.
