Australia won their sixth ODI World Cup in history, defeating India by six wickets.
For majority part of the game, the Men in Yellow dominated the home team, and in the end, it was too simple for them. Travis Head hit an incredible century, followed by Marnus Labuschagne’s half-century as the Indian bowlers looked to have given up in the middle of the game.
India had a great start when Rohit Sharma batted first, but they lost wickets st regular intervals. Although KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were gradually forming a significant partnership, the team's spirits were lowered when the former was out. KL Rahul then had the pressure to see it through while the Bangalore-born cricketer couldn’t. The Indian team eventually buckled under the pressure, as the middle-order Australian bowlers were outstanding. The speed trio of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc was excellent with the ball, while Travis Head and David Warner were merciless in the field. They exerted pressure on India for most of the innings and, in the end, were able to limit the Men in Blue to 240 runs.
During the chase, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami got three wickets in quick succession, but Head and Labuschagne stole the game from India. Despite losing three quick wickets, Head never seemed to have panicked as Australia chased it down with absolute ease. Labuschagne supported him well and with that, Australia won another final.
Brief Scores: India 240 all out (KL Rahul 66, Virat Kohli 54; Mitchell Starc 3-55, Pat Cummins 2-34) lost to Australia 241/4 in 43 overs (Travis Head 137, Marnus Labuschagne 58*) by 6 wickets
