Australia clinched the 2023 ODI World Cup with a resounding victory over India at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday. The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 final drew a star-studded crowd. The list of iconic figures featured cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and badminton legend Prakash Padukone, alongside Bollywood stars like Anushka Sharma, Shah Rukh Khan, and more. Sporting Team India jerseys, Ranveer Singh and Ayushmann Khurrana also attended the match.
Ayushmann Khurrana delighted his fans by sharing a selfie on his Instagram story featuring himself alongside Ranveer Singh and Hardik Pandya.
