India vs. Australia Live Score, World Cup Final 2023:
Australia demonstrated their dominance in both batting and bowling during the match against India. Winning the toss, Australian captain Pat Cummins elected to bowl first, a decision that India’s Rohit Sharma agreed with, stating that they would have chosen to bat anyway. Although Rohit made an explosive start, Shubman Gill, who had an impressive track record in Ahmedabad, fell early to Mitchell Starc. Virat Kohli entered the field with great aggression, but Rohit’s innings were cut short by Glenn Maxwell thanks to an exceptional catch by Travis Head, just three runs shy of his half-century.

Cummins continued to make an impact by dismissing the in-form Shreyas Iyer in the following over. KL Rahul and Kohli then tried to stabilize the Indian innings. However, the boundaries became scarce after the 10th over, and Kohli eventually fell for 54 off 63 deliveries. Rahul fought hard to hold the innings together, but India suffered another setback when Ravindra Jadeja, promoted ahead of Suryakumar Yadav, was dismissed in the 36th over.
Rahul managed to reach a half-century while receiving support from SKY, marking the last partnership of recognized batsmen for India. Unfortunately, Rahul’s innings ended at 66 off 107 balls, falling victim to Starc. Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav managed to add 14 runs for the final wicket, leading to India’s total of 240 all out in 50 overs. India vs. Australia
India began their defense strongly, with Mohammed Shami opening the bowling instead of Mohammed Siraj. Shami made an immediate impact by taking the wicket of David Warner with the second ball of his first over. Jasprit Bumrah then dismissed Mitchell Marsh. Although both bowlers were expensive, they managed to remove two of Australia’s most dangerous top-order batsmen.
In response, Australia overcame their shaky start with opener Travis Head delivering a brilliant century. Marnus Labuschagne played a patient inning, contributing 57 runs off 109 balls. Their partnership became the second-highest run stand in World Cup final history, propelling Australia to a six-wicket victory. Unfortunately for Rohit and his team, their trophy drought at ICC events continued. Travis Head’s outstanding knock of 137 earned him the Player of the Match award for his memorable performance against the hosts at the Narendra Modi Stadium. India vs. Australia
