After a nailbiting World Cup final between India and Australia, the latter handed over a heartbreaking defeat to the former at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday. And just like the millions of Indians who shed a tear, actresses Anushka Sharma, Athiya Shetty, and the other family members of the cricketers too were seen getting emotional in the stands.
As Team Australia was seen celebrating their sixth World Cup victory, Team India captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and the other players walked back to the dressing room fighting tears.
And along with them, Anushka too was seen getting emotional in the stands, while Rohit's wife Ritika Sajdeh was visibly teary-eyed. KL Rahul's wife, actress Athiya Shetty too made no efforts to hide her disappointment.
Team India, which was undefeated throughout the tournament, put up a target of 241 for Australia after quite some struggle, which the latter managed to score in just 43 overs.
Australia handed over a thumping defeat to India as they won the match by six wickets and lifted the trophy for a record sixth time.
The epic clash between India and Australia also attracted a slew of celebs to the Narendra Modi stadium, including the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri Khan, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Madhur Bhandarkar, and others.
The bigwigs were seen cheering and hooting for Team India from the stands, but they were soon silenced by the swashbuckling innings by the Australian batters.
Numerous celebs later took to their social media handles to express their disappointment over India's defeat and share consoling words for Team India players.
