Amitabh Bachchan, a renowned figure with well-known superstitious beliefs concerning Indian cricket matches, recently shared his support for Team India through a tweet, just a few hours prior to their loss in the World Cup 2023 final against Australia. Despite his earlier reservations about attending the match due to his belief that the team tends to perform better when he doesn’t watch, Bachchan commended the Indian cricket team’s talent, capability, and overall standing in a tweet filled with encouragement.
T 4836 – …. your talent , capability and standing is beyond all that .. it is supreme .. the results of the 10 you played exhibited that .. you are a feared team .. just see how many ex Champions and Winners you devastated in this WC .. you are the BEST .. and shall remain so…

In his tweet, the iconic actor expressed, “Your talent, capability and standing is beyond all that… it is supreme… the results of the 10 you played exhibited that… you are a feared team… just see how many ex-champions and winners you devastated in this WC… you are the BEST… and shall remain so… Team India… Rohit Sharma.”

The night of the match saw Bachchan post a cryptic tweet that simply stated, “Kuch bhi toh nahi (Nothing at all).” This led many followers to speculate that he might be alluding to the India vs. Australia match, where Australia successfully chased India’s target of 240 runs.
Amitabh Bachchan’s adherence to superstitious beliefs related to watching cricket matches has been a topic of discussion for some time. He has previously mentioned that the Indian cricket team often secures victories when he refrains from watching their matches. Despite this, concerned fans urged him not to watch the match, fearing that his presence might bring bad luck to the team.

A few days before the final showdown on November 17, Amitabh had expressed uncertainty about attending the match, tweeting, “Ab soch raha hoon, jaaun ki na jaaun (Now I am thinking whether I should go or not)!” In a tweet on November 15, he had humorously stated, “When I don’t watch, we WIN!” referring to the World Cup semi-final clash between India and New Zealand on November 15.
