ICC Cricket World Cup 2023

ICC World Cup 2023: 24th Match Australia easily defeated Netherlands in Delhi on Wednesday, October 25, by a record-breaking 309 runs, to win the 2023 World Cup for the third time in a row. It was the largest winning margin in the history of the World Cup. The Netherlands was given a massive target of 400 when Glenn Maxwell and David Warner scored hundreds in contrast to Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne scoring fifty. Needless to say, the Dutch were defeated by 309 runs and were never able to put up a serious chase.
As it has been throughout the competition, the new ball under lights was a difficult task for the batters, and the Netherlands lacks a response to Australia’s pace attack or Adam Zampa’s skill. Vikramjit Singh played a daring role in a couple of the boundaries in the first few overs, but after the opening stand was broken, the floodgates opened and the Australians were never let up. The Dutch hitters were unable to connect with the ball because of the heat of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Pat Cummins. Australia found the pacy hard length to be rather effective, and Zampa’s arrival sped up the result.

For the Netherlands, it was a tough wake-up call when they had to face a huge attack by Australia’s batsmen at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, another excellent batting ground. After Mitchell Marsh was out early, Warner’s spectacular century and his century stand with Smith had set Australia fire. Smith was the first to initiate connection, but both of them took the initiative right away. The mistake by the Netherlands to open with spin failed, as Warner took Aryan Dutt early on and established the tone for Australia’s innings.

Smith’s innings was cut short by an easy dismissal, but Warner and Labuschagne continued on with the innings as Australia looked for a huge victory. But the Netherlands responded flawlessly for a time, causing a mini-collapse, and at 290/6, the Dutch would have hoped to stop the last effort. Then Maxwell took place. The explosive batsman, who had been struggling lately, found his timing right away and then went crazy towards the end to record the fastest-ever World Cup century with 40 balls, which is nine balls faster than Aiden Markram’s success at this same site during the opening week of the tournament.

The pressure was on the Netherlands bowlers for the first time in the contest, and they were unable to handle it. After Australia reached 399, the only factor that remained significant in the match as by chance. The Netherlands should have been able to battle back, but an Australian team that is starting to get some momentum absolutely overpowered opponents.
