The 13th edition of the Cricket World Cup will end on 19 November 2023 with a final match between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

India has broken several records in the ongoing World Cup 2023. They reached the final stage of the tournament with a perfect score without losing any match. 

The 'Men in Blue' are placed at the top of the Cricket World Cup 2023 Points Table with 18 points and a run rate of +2.570.

In the first semi-final against New Zealand, Virat Kohli made the big stage his own and added more luster to his larger-than-life persona with a historic 50th ODI century that extended India's bullish World Cup run to the title clash even as Kiwis threatened to spoil the home team's party with a lion-hearted fight, in Mumbai on Wednesday.

In the second semi-final on Thursday, Australia excelled on the big stage yet again as they pulled off a scrappy three-wicket win to shatter South African dreams and reach their eighth ODI World Cup final.

India batting maestro, Virat Kohli, who ended the league stage of the tournament as the highest run scorer remains on top after the semi-finals as well. 

Kohli has scored 711 runs in 10 innings at an incredible average of 101.57. He is likely to end up as the leading run scorer in the tournament.

Quinton de Kock, who was dismissed for just 3 runs against Australia ended the tournament with 594 runs in 10 innings. The South African wicket-keeper batter has also retired from the ODI format. 

New Zealand's Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell are placed third and fourth on the list of highest run scorers in the ODI World Cup 2023 with 578 and 552 runs respectively. 

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is fifth on the list with 550 runs in 10 innings. With a strike rate of 124.15, Sharma has provided a quick start to the Indian innings in most of the matches.

Talking about the highest wicket-takers of the World Cup 2023, Mohammad Shami is leading the charts with a total of 23 tickets. 

After yielding 7 wickets against New Zealand in the semi-final match, Shami was declared as the player of the match.
