Millions of fans were left heartbroken after Team Australia defeated India by 6 wickets in the World Cup final. The loss sparked a flurry of activity on social media, with fans sharing memes to express their sadness or offer bittersweet consolation. Anupam Mittal, the judge of Shark Tank India and CEO of Shaadi.com, took to Twitter to share a funny tweet in an attempt to lighten the mood of dejected fans. In the tweet, Mittal humorously suggested that match fixing in India only happens on Shaadi.com, while also promoting his online matchmaking site.
The tweet quickly gained attention and amused internet users, with some praising Mittal’s marketing skills. One user even commented, “Shadi.Com par Life time ka match fix hota hai” (Match fixing for a lifetime happens on Shaadi.com). Another user called for a raise for the person who came up with the clever tweet. Meanwhile, Shaadi.com also expressed gratitude to Team India in a separate tweet, thanking them for teaching the importance of partnership and the ability to win hearts even in defeat.
India’s defeat marked the end of their dream to win the Cricket World Cup 2023 for the third time. Australia’s comfortable victory in the final allowed them to lift the coveted trophy for the 6th time in their history. During the chase of 241 runs, India had the Australians in trouble at 47/3. However, impressive performances from Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne guided Australia to a six-wicket win, leaving the Indian team without answers.
Overall, the loss was a disappointment for Indian cricket fans, but it also sparked a humorous response on social media and showcased the wit of Anupam Mittal through his tweet.
