The International Cricket Council (ICC) is likely to invite all former World Cup winners to watch the final between India and Australia on Sunday, November 19. However, there are lingering doubts about Pakistan’s 1992 World Cup-winning captain Imran Khan. According to reports, Mahndra Singh Dhoni may attend the event along with other winning captains of the coveted World Cup.
Meanwhile, the Indian Air Force’s Surya Kiran aerobatic team on Friday rehearsed for the air show they are scheduled to perform ahead of the Cricket World Cup final between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on November 19.
The Surya Kiran team held a big rehearsal at the stadium and will also rehearse on Saturday before the final show, Gujarat Defense PRO said.
According to the PRO, the acrobatic team will enthrall the crowd 10 minutes before the start of the final match, which will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in the city’s Motera area on November 19.
“As of now, the air show is scheduled before the final match for which a rehearsal was held at the stadium on Friday,” said Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) spokesperson Jagat Patel.
The Surya Kiran aerobatic team usually consists of nine aircraft and has performed numerous air shows in the country.
The characteristic features of their display are looping maneuvers in the winning formation, rolling maneuvers and the formation of various shapes in the sky with the help of airplanes.
Team India, unbeaten in the tournament, produced an all-round performance against New Zealand in the semi-final.
India’s tenacious number three player, Virat Kohli, made history by becoming the first person to score fifty hundreds in One Day International cricket. India scored 397/4 to put pressure on New Zealand.
Leading India’s efforts with the ball was Shami, who managed to fend off a stubborn New Zealand reply, spearheaded by Daryl Mitchell’s 134, the right-hander’s second century against India in the competition.
Shami is now the leading wicket-taker in the competition with 24 from six matches at an incredible average of 9.13.
