Those unlucky captains of India who could not win the World Cup

There have been some captains in India who did a lot with their captaincy, but they could not win the World Cup title for India. If we look at the recent final match of the ODI World Cup 2023, it becomes clear that not everyone is destined to win a gold medal.

The Indian team, captained by Rohit Sharma, had won brilliantly in 10 consecutive matches in this World Cup, but in the final match, Australia defeated India by 6 wickets and won the sixth World Cup title.

Rohit Sharma is not the only captain who has not won the World Cup title, apart from him many legends have also not been able to win the World Cup title even once.
