Australia won the World Cup, India won the hearts

It was indeed a wonderful achievement for Australia as they had a horrible start to their campaign. They were beaten by India and South Africa and then made a comeback and won eight matches on the trot, which included the final against India. For India, it was also a memorable World Cup campaign. Ahead of the final, Rohit Sharma-led side convincingly defeated every opponent in their journey. Whether it was Rohit's intent with the bat upfront, Virat Kohli's record-breaking 765 runs in the tournament or Mohammed Shami picking up 24 wickets, every fact will go down in history, but whenever the mention of the World Cup will raise a dreaded thought will always follow.
