David Warner responds to Mohammad Kaif's 'Best Team on Paper' remark after Cricket World Cup Final

In the aftermath of Australia's triumph in the World Cup final against India, Australian opener David Warner has strongly countered Mohammad Kaif's assertion that India remains the "best team on paper." Warner emphasized the importance of on-field performance over paper credentials, stating that success in the final is the decisive factor.

Following Australia's convincing six-wicket victory over India in the final in Ahmedabad, Mohammad Kaif expressed his surprise at India's loss, declaring, "I can never accept that the best team has won the World Cup. The Indian team is the best team on paper."

David Warner, the leading run-scorer for Australia in the World Cup, offered a robust response to Kaif's comments. Warner stressed that on-field performance is what truly matters, irrespective of the team's theoretical strength on paper.

"I like MK (Kaif), the issue is it does not matter what's on paper. At the end of the day, you need to perform when it matters. That's why they call it a final. That's the day that counts, and it can go either way; that's sports. 2027 here we come," expressed Warner on 'X'.

India had an impeccable record, winning all ten matches leading up to the final. In contrast, Australia faced early challenges, losing their first two league matches, including the opener against India in Chennai. However, they rebounded impressively, winning nine consecutive matches to secure their record-extending sixth World Cup title.
