[Watch] ‘Ocean Of Blue’ At Narendra Modi Stadium For ‘Super Sunday’ India-Australia WC Finale
Ahmedabad: Hours before the most-awaited ICC One-Day International (ODI) World Cup 2023 final on ‘Super Sunday, an ocean of blue was seen marching towards Motera, the Narendra Modi Stadium, where Rohit Sharma and Co will look to avoid the repeat of 2003 World Cup tragedy when Team India lost to Australia in the summit clash.
Fans shared glimpses from outside and inside the stadium on social media. It seems as if the entire city is moving in one direction with the streets leading to the stadium’s main entry gate lined with sellers of counterfeit India jerseys.
