Pandya took to Instagram and posted a video saying ‘Let’s bring the Cup home’.
“I could not have been more proud of this team. Everything that we’ve done so far has been credit to the years of hard work behind us. We are now one step away from glory, from doing something special we’ve dreamt of since we were children lifting the cup not just for ourselves but the billion people behind us,” Pandya said.
“Always with you with my love and all my heart. Now let’s bring the cup home. Jai Hind,” Pandya further said.
India have been the only unbeaten team in the World Cup, winning all 10 games on their way to Sunday’s finale against five-time champions Australia.
India are without a major international title since the 2013 Champions Trophy and expectations in the cricket-crazy nation are too high.
India last won an ODI World Cup in 2011 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy.
