Right then, 241 is what Australia need to get their hands on the silverware and add another trophy to their already illustrious cabinet. Even though this looks like a below-par total, batting is not that easy on this sluggish surface. On the other hand, India’s hope rests on their bowlers who have been exceptional so far and Rohit Sharma will hope that they can do the job yet again. The Men in Blue and their fans will be praying that the dew does not arrive but if it does, it will make batting easier for the Aussies. Join us in a bit to see how the chase unfolds.

Mitchell Starc is in for a chat. He says that the way they took the field together was fantastic. Adds that there is not much help for the quick bowlers so they had to rely on variations. Credits Cummins and Hazlewood for their efforts and says when they played against England, there wasn’t much reverse swing in the second innings. He is hoping that dew comes on in the second half as batting is not easy here. Ends by saying that it is the World Cup final and it comes down to who wants it the most.

After being inserted into bat, India were once again off to a breezy start. Rohit Sharma was quick to get off the blocks, while a loose shot early in the innings led to Shubman Gill’s downfall. Virat Kohli came out with positive intent, and he, along with Rohit, gave India a good head start in the first Powerplay. However, in the space of five deliveries, India lost Rohit and Shreyas Iyer to find themselves in a spot of bother. Kohli then joined hands with KL Rahul and soaked up the pressure well by knocking it around. Kohli got out on 54, which left Rahul searching for partners and eventually, he perished on 66. After that, Suryakumar Yadav fought a lone fight but going was tough for him as well and he too was dismissed without much impact. Thanks to the 14-run last wicket stand between Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj, India limped their way to 240.

As far as Australia are concerned, it was Mitchell Starc who helped draw the first blood with the wicket of Shubman Gill. Even though they were put under pressure by Rohit Sharma, twin strikes in quick succession from Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins helped them wrestle the initiative back. Cummins rotated his bowlers well during the middle phase, and they did a stellar job, conceding only two boundaries between overs 11 and 40. Just when a partnership was blossoming, Cummins got rid of Kohli which opened one end for Australia. Hazlewood and Starc got the ball to reverse swing and by doing so, piled more misery on India. Adam Zampa too got into the act with a wicket before Cummins and Hazlewood helped Australia finish strongly with the ball. A special mention for the way Australia fielded and they surely were turned on for this grand occasion.

India have been bowled out for 240! A clinical bowling effort from Australia has them one step closer to lifting the Men’s ODI World Cup trophy for the sixth time. Are we jumping the gun after only one inning? Well, many will feel so, but if you are a cricket fan without any bias, this is a total which will give an edge to Australia. It has been a combination of perfect planning and perfect execution from Pat Cummins’ men and as a result, they will be the happier of the two sides.
