AHMEDABAD: Australia won the toss for the final World Cup 2023 clash against India. Aussies chose to bowl first.
The stakes are high as both teams vie for the prestigious crown that signifies cricketing supremacy. The battle will unfold at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Australia has won five ODI World Cups so far, while India has managed to clinch two ICC Men’s WC titles.
India’s first wicket fell in the fifth over, when Shubman Gill got out after making four runs on seven balls. He was caught by Adam Zampa on a ball bowled by Mitchell Starc.
Travis Head displaying amazing skill caught Indian skipper Rohit Sharma’s hit, dismissing him for 47. Moments after that Shreyas Iyer was also sent packing only for four runs. This time the ball was thrown by Australian Skipper and he got his moment of “silence” from the crowd that was stunned at the back to back dropping of wickets.
After a highly unexpected incident of a man wearing “Stop Bombing Palestine” t-shirt jumping on to the field, the second shocker came from Kohli’s dismissal.
Aussie skipper did not make a mistake, shooting straight for the stumps while bowling to Virat Kohli. The Indian maestro managed to put up 54 runs before his dismissal.
