Ahmedabad Crowd Slammed For Stunned Silence, 'Disrespecting' Players In World Cup Final
As Australia took on the Indian team in the final of the Cricket World Cup 2023, their battle wasn't just limited to nullifying the hosts' batters and bowlers but also the crowd. About one lakh 30 thousand people, dressed in blue, came out to support the Indian team in their quest for the ODI World Cup title but as Australia dominated proceedings on the 22-yard strip, the crowd turned unruly. In fact, several social media users called out the crowd's silence in the match, accusing them of disrespecting the Australian team as well as match officials.
Australia skipper Pat Cummins had cleared his objective of 'silencing the crowd' before the World Cup final began. While Cummins and his team succeeded in their plan, the fans at the venue were slammed for their failure to lift the Indian team's spirits at times when Rohit Sharma's men needed them the most.
The Ahmedabad crowd was rubbish
Need proper fans inside a stadium instead of fly by night pretenders
Like the amazing people at Wankhede
Cheered the team on and especially Shami post the dropped catch
Chanted his name non stop
The crowd booed the umpires as well. What is wrong with Ahmedabad seriously? What's the literacy rate there? #INDvsAUSfinal pic.twitter.com/aNNmqCWmeN
Wankhede crowd would've at least cheered morale of the team. Kya ghatiya crowd hai Ahmedabad ka. Aise shaant baithe hai jaise Dentist ka appointment hai
130K Ahmedabad crowd is less noiser than 35k Chinnaswamy.
You can build the stadium but can't build the passion.
Bengaluru was given associate match. Never forget.
Some fans even left the game early, realising that the Indian team wasn't going to win the final. Even Cummins said after the match that he was happy to see the crowd being
