In his newsletter titled ‘My World Cup Final Wrap’, Marnus Labuschagne has written, ‘There was a lot of noise there and at that time Team India had built momentum very quickly. The Indian team was coming towards me and to be honest, all I could say in response was, “Whatever you are saying, I can’t hear anything in this noise.”

Marnus writes, ‘When the bus reached the ground, we saw that fans were standing in line from about 5 km away. It was amazing to see how enthusiastic the fans there were for this match. The crowd was like a blue ocean. It seemed as if it was a competition between us and the rest of the world. We also like this kind of environment.
