‘Been Almost 16 Hours But Still Hurts’: Shubman Gill Posts Emotional Tweet After India Lose World Cup Final

India opener Shubman Gill expressed his disappointment after the team’s heartbreaking defeat to Australia in the ICC World Cup 2023 final on Sunday night.

Gill was one of the several Indian batters who flopped with the bat, scoring just 4 runs in the team’s below-par total of 240 at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

The Aussies comfortably overhauled the target thanks to Travis Head’s sublime 137 and Marnus Labuschagne’s unbeaten 58.

The sadness was visible in the faces of the Indian players after the match. Some players like Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Siraj found is hard to control their tears after India suffered their one and only defeat in the tournament at the final hurdle.

“Been almost 16 hours but still hurts like it did last night. Sometimes giving your everything isn’t enough. We fell short of our ultimate goal but every step in this journey has been a testament to our team’s spirit and dedication.

“To our incredible fans, your unwavering support in our highs and lows means the world to us. This isn’t the end, it’s not over until we win. Jai Hind,” Gill tweeted on X.
