“to get just desserts”

When you say that someone has got his just desserts, what you mean is that the individual got what he deserved. The punishment he received was well deserved.

” In most movies, the villain gets his just desserts in the end.” * “I am really glad that India lost. They got their just desserts. The players were overconfident.”
