“It’s just not a loss; it’s 1.4 billion heartbreaks. The disheartening day in the history of the World Cup was marked on November 19 2023, when our Men in Blue couldn’t lift the World Cup trophy. Team India not only proved their virtue but gave the entire nation hope to bring the World Cup trophy. Unfortunately, our dream of watching the trophy come home shattered last night. The craze for this World Cup was hidden from none, and the entire Internet was into the World Cup wave!” wrote Diksha Gupta, who works at Marketing Moves Agency, on LinkedIn.
