Sunil Gavaskar, a former player and distinguished commentator, has confidently asserted that the Indian team stands as the clear favorites for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023 final. This declaration follows Australia’s narrow 3-wicket triumph over South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The Men in Blue are now poised to face the five-time champions in the highly anticipated match scheduled at the Narendra Modi Stadium on November 19, where the Indian Prime Minister is expected to grace the occasion.

Gavaskar, recognizing the inherent unpredictability of knockout matches where the best teams collide, expressed his inclination towards the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team. This endorsement is rooted in their flawless unbeaten run, which includes a victorious semi-final against New Zealand.

“India are firm favorites because of the way they have performed in the World Cup,” Gavaskar conveyed to Rajdeep Sardesai.

When prompted to compare the 1983 World Cup-winning team with the current Indian squad and pick a winner, Gavaskar sided with Kapil Dev’s unit, stating, “The 1983 World Cup winning team will beat Rohit Sharma’s men. I am absolutely sure and there is no doubt.”
