Argentina won their third FIFA World Cup title after beating France 4-2 in a penalty shootout at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar on Sunday. The two teams were tied 3–3 after the end of 120 minutes, before Argentina won on penalties. Lionel Messi scored twice for Argentina, and picked up the Golden Ball for the best player of the World Cup, finishing one goal behind Kylian Mbappe, who won the Golden Boot after scoring a hat-trick in the final. Team India, which is currently in Bangladesh for the two-match Test series, enjoyed a special screening of the final between Argentina and France.

India beat Bangladesh by 188 runs in the first Test on Sunday to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
Set a mammoth 513 for victory, Bangladesh put up stiff resistance with Zakir Hasan scoring a century on debut.
Captain Shakib played a blistering 84 which included six sixes but was bowled by Kuldeep Yadav on the final day.
Bangladesh were eventually bowled out for 324 after losing the last four wickets after an hour’s play.
With this win, India moved to the second spot in the ICC World Test Championship points table.
Notably, India have never lost a Test in Bangladesh.
The second Test of the series will start in Dhaka from 22 December.
