Australia opener David Warner on Monday had to apologise to his Indian fans after his team defeated the hosts to win the ICC World Cup in Ahmedabad. Australia outclassed India by 6 wickets in a one-sided final played at the Narendra Modi Stadium to break billions of hearts as the Men in Blue were the favourites to lift the title before the summit clash.The defeat took away India's best chance of ending their 10-year ICC title drought while the Aussies added the trophy to their already-overflowing cabinet. Australia had previously won the ODI World Cup in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015 before Sunday night's sixth triumph.Warner apologises for winning World CupA fan took to X, formerly Twitter, to tell Warner that the Aussies left every Indian cricket follower with a broken heart after the final. "Dear @davidwarner31 you've broken billions of hearts," a fan named Samridh Agarwal reminded Warner to which he replied with "I apologise, it was such a great game and the atmosphere was incredible. India really put on a serious event. Thank you all."Warner flopped in the final with the bat but that didn't stop Australia from cantering to victory as they gunned down the below-par target of 241 in just 43 overs thanks to Travis Head's 137 and Marcus Labuschagne's unbeaten 58. The Mitchell Starc-led Aussie attack had earlier bowled out India for 240 in 50 overs after Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to bowl first on a slow pitch at the Modi stadium. Indian fans targeting Aus player familiesNotably, Aussie players have been receiving a lot of hate on social media from Indian cricket fans after the final. A section of fans targeted Travis Head and Glenn Maxwell's families with the former's wife and infant daughter even getting rape threats.Maxwell's wife Vini Raman even hit back at her trollers after being slammed for supporting the Aussies despite being an Indian.
