Team India is all set to lock horns against the Netherlands for their last and final game of the ODI World Cup 2023, slated to take place on November 12 at M. Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore. Rohit Sharma and Co. are currently unbeaten in the tournament and are expected to finish with nine out of nine wins in the event. Notably, regardless of the loss or win, the hosts will end up in the top spot and will be playing the first semi-final game against New Zealand.
Rohit Sharma and Co. have had the most stellar campaign of the tournament. The hosts first thrashed five-time world champion Australia, despite being reduced to 2/3. Following that, they got a magnificent win over Afghanistan in New Delhi. In addition, they bundled out arch-rivals Pakistan and got the win over them. Notably, the side defeated Bangladesh as well after getting defeated in the Asia Cup 2023 against them.
However, New Zealand gave a tough fight, but the hosts defeated them as well. Moreover, the Men in Blue outclassed the defending champions despite posting 229/9 in the given 50 overs. Following them, they humiliated Sri Lanka in the ODI World Cup 2023 the same way they did in the Asia Cup 2023 final before beating in-form South Africa in their last clash.
Team India didn’t miss the opportunity to dress traditionally for a Diwali get-together

Players were captured arriving in Bengaluru, especially dressed up for the occasion of Diwali, in a number of photos that became popular on social media. Notably, Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma, and Rohit Sharma, along with his wife and daughter, stole the limelight from the party. Moreover, India captain and vice-captain Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul took to social media and shared pictures from the party.
