Australia Foreign Minister Penny Wong presented bats to young batters at the Australian High Commission in Delhi. Wong visited the national capital on Monday, November 20 for a 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue. The cricketing rivalry between Australia and India needs no mention as the cricketing giants recently clashed at the final of the 2023 ODI World Cup final, where the Baggy Greens registered a six-wicket win over the Men in Blue.
With this win, they became the world champions for a record sixth time. In a video posted by the ANI, Wong could be seen meeting young batters. Not only this, but she also presented bats to them. Speaking about the ODI World Cup 2023 final, the match took place on November 19, Sunday, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

After remaining undefeated throughout the tournament, the Men in Blue faced a disheartening six-wicket loss by the Pat Cummins-led side in the mega clash of the marquee tournament. After a disheartening end to the OD World Cup 2023 campaign, India will lock horns with the six-time World Champions Australia in a five-match T20I series.
The first match of the series will be held at Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam, while it will conclude at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. India will be led by Suryakumar Yadav and Matthew Wade will be Australia’s captain in the forthcoming tournament.
