Australia’s chase was greatly aided by Travis Head and Marcus Labuschagne, whose bowlers put on an outstanding show, limiting India, a fearsome batting juggernaut, to 240 runs.
Australia won the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy after defeating India by six wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. With this victory, Australia has won six titles in a row, joining those from 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2015.
Opening batsman Travis Head showcased a stellar performance, scoring 137 runs off 120 balls, guiding Australia to chase down the target of 241 runs in 43 overs and securing their second One Day International World Cup title. The last time Australia claimed this title was in 2003 in Johannesburg, where they defeated India led by Sourav Ganguly.
India reached the final on the back of a 10-match winning streak, having defeated Australia in the league stage match in Chennai last month.
Despite losing three early wickets, Australia comfortably secured a straightforward victory at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday evening. Travis Head’s impressive 137 runs off 120 balls and Marcus Labuschagne’s 58 runs off 110 balls contributed to Australia’s triumph.
Captain Pat Cummins led his team to victory, bringing home a trophy that wasn’t considered a favourite for them more than six weeks ago when the tournament began.
In fact, Australia and India kicked off their campaign against each other in Chennai on October 8th, where star Indian batsman Virat Kohli, along with KL Rahul, secured their team’s first win with a comfortable chase. The situation was similar in Ahmedabad, where Kohli (54) and Rahul (66) once again came together for a rescue mission. However, due to the fall of wickets on the big stage, India managed a modest target of 241 runs at the end of 50 overs.
Australia’s bowlers, led by the excellent fast bowling of Mitchell Starc, consistently prevented the power-packed Indian batting lineup from scoring freely, finishing with figures of 3-55 in his 10 overs. Captain Cummins concluded with figures of 2-34 in his 10 overs, while pace bowler Josh Hazlewood contributed with 2-60 runs in his 10 overs.
