Australian cricketer David Warner issued a heartfelt apology to a fan who expressed disappointment over ‘the billions of hearts’ he allegedly broke during the 2023 World Cup final against India on Sunday, November 19.
In Ahmedabad, Australia managed to restrict India to a modest total of 240 runs in the first innings. Despite a strong start, Australia faced a setback after losing three quick wickets, prompting them to adopt a more cautious approach in their pursuit of victory. Ultimately, Travis Head’s remarkable innings of 137 runs off 120 balls played a pivotal role in securing the win for Australia, chasing down the target in the 43rd over with six wickets to spare.
Addressing the fans’ sentiments, David Warner took to X (formerly Twitter) to express his regret, stating, “I apologize, it was such a great game, and the atmosphere was incredible. India really put on a serious event. Thank you all.”
Warner scored only seven runs in the final, his only single-digit score in the entire tournament. However, his overall performance in the World Cup was noteworthy, emerging as Australia’s leading run-scorer with an impressive total of 535 runs from 11 matches, boasting an average of 48.64 and a striking rate of 108.30.
