The Men’s World Cup Final match between India and Australia has concluded. And as much as it breaks our heart to write this, India has lost. The partnership between Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne dominated our bowlers, who had been undefeatable throughout the tournament.

Watching Rohit and Siraj’s moist eyes, the devastated faces at the stadium, was heartbreaking. Distraught, some cricket fans have shared their thoughts that sum up exactly how we’re feeling right now.

Fans online have also reacted. Take a look:

Personally speaking, Virat deserved it, Rohit deserved it, Shami, Bumrah, Siraj deserved it, our team deserved it. We were unstoppable. It was heartbreaking to see this.

We couldn’t lift our third World Cup trophy tonight. But team India gave us a lifetime worth of memories this tournament, and we can’t forget that.

Thank you, team. You’ve made us proud!
