Renowned cricketer Matthew Hayden has shared his predictions for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final, anticipating a clash between hosts India and his home country, Australia.
India remains unbeaten throughout the tournament, while Australia has staged a remarkable comeback with eight consecutive victories after initially losing their first two games.
Expressing his views in a conversation with the International Cricket Council before the final showdown, Hayden voiced his belief that India would emerge victorious.
According to the two-time 50-over World Cup-winning batter, India’s unity, experienced bowling unit, and standout individual performances, including Virat Kohli’s prolific form and contributions from players like Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, and Shreyas Iyer, position them as undeniable favorites for the title.
However, Hayden acknowledged Australia as a formidable opponent, emphasizing their track record as five-time World Cup champions.
