Mitchell Marsh, the star Australian batter who hit one of the biggest sixes during the World Cup final match against India, was captured in a photo with his feet resting on the World Cup trophy after the game. The image was taken in the Australian dressing room following their historic victory at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on November 19, 2023.
The photo was shared by Australian captain Pat Cummins on Instagram stories and showed Marsh relaxing on a couch and stretching his legs, with his feet resting on the trophy. However, this casual pose sparked outrage among Indian netizens who considered it disrespectful given the intense competition among ten national teams during the tournament.
Despite this controversy, Australia emerged victorious over India with a score of 240 runs bowled first and chased down by Australia’s team in 43 overs with 6 wickets left. This victory marked Australia’s sixth time winning the World Cup title.
