Rohit Sharma’s Team India in the 2023 World Cup continues its remarkable winning streak, overpowering every opponent in its path. The most recent victim of their dominance was the struggling Sri Lankan team, which could only muster a paltry 55 runs at the iconic Wankhede Stadium.

In a striking case of déjà vu, harking back to the Asia Cup 2023 final just two months prior, where India had dismissed Sri Lanka for a mere 50 runs, the Indian fast bowlers once again displayed their prowess, terrorizing the Sri Lankan batters and limiting them to 55 runs.

Defending a formidable total of 357 runs, India’s bowling attack proved relentless. Jasprit Bumrah set the tone, striking with the very first ball by dismissing Pathum Nissanka. Mohammed Siraj continued the onslaught, securing three crucial wickets. However, Sri Lanka’s ordeal reached its zenith when Mohammed Shami, already having taken 9 wickets in the last two matches, achieved his third 5-wicket haul in the ODI World Cup, dismantling Sri Lanka for a mere 55 runs. India celebrated a resounding 302-run victory, with Shami rightfully receiving the Player of the Match award for his exceptional figures of 5/18 in 5 overs.

With an impeccable record of seven wins in as many games, India became the first team to secure a spot in the semi-finals, remaining the sole unbeaten side in the tournament.

Smriti Irani, the Minister of Women and Child Development and Minister of Minority Affairs, took to Twitter to commend Rohit Sharma’s Team India for their exceptional performance in the World Cup. She celebrated the team’s unwavering dedication and tweeted: “7 matches, 7 wins, 1 incredible team! Bharat’s unstoppable journey in the World Cup continues, and we couldn’t be prouder. Keep pushing those boundaries, champions!”

Smriti Irani’s tweet, in recognition of Rohit Sharma’s Team India’s success, quickly gained widespread attention.
