Australia lift the 6th ICC ODI World Cup Trophy after Travis Head hit a hundred in the World Cup final against India in Narendra Modi Ahmedabad on Sunday. These 5 main reasons for Indian Cricket Team Defeat finally out.
Australia lifted the trophy for a record 6th time after defeating the host India by 6 wickets in the final of the ODI World Cup 2023 tournament held at the Narendra Modi Ground in Ahmedabad. India, who were confident of winning the 3rd ODI World Cup at home, faced a shock of defeat.
After losing the toss and batting first, India were bowled out for 240 runs. Virat Kohli scored 54, KL Rahul 66, Rohit Sharma scored 47 runs. Chasing a target of 241 runs, the Aussies managed to win for the loss of 4 wickets in 43 overs. Travis Head became the villain for India with 137 runs.
The batting department of the Indian team, which had performed brilliantly throughout the tournament, wilted in the final match against the disciplined attack of Australia. Both batting and bowling gave a boring performance. But where did the India cricket team stumble in the final? What were the main reasons for India’s defeat? Here is the detail.
1. Australia’s superb fielding:
Yes, India who batted first suffered a setback in this regard. Australia fielded brilliantly from the first ball of the innings. The Aussie players, who were in the 30 yard circle, took good care of the ball to go to the boundary.
Even the ball that was going away from him jumped like a leopard and blocked it. Blocked many boundaries. He also broke the doubles and singles run through hard dives. He made sure that India’s score did not go up. Due to this, the Indian team lost at least 30 to 40 runs.
2. Not getting a good start, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer fail:
This is an important match. Even a small mistake is pointed out. Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer should have been aware of this issue. True, both of them performed brilliantly in the tournament. Where is the ball how he was easily out by one point because he didn’t know what was coming
Expectations were high on Gill. Because Gill, who plays for Gujarat Titans in the IPL, was the home ground of Narendra Modi stadium. Scored a lot of runs on this pitch. He has rained runs in the previous matches as well. But he failed against Australia and came under criticism.
3. The selection of Suryakumar Yadav is unnecessary:
Due to Hardik Pandya’s injury, Mohammed Shami was given a chance in bowling and Suryakumar Yadav was given a chance in batting. Surya was brought in as an extra batsman. Surya Kumar has a record of bad performances against Australia. He was a hat-trick duckout in the series held in March.
Also, Surya, who came to the crease in the 36th over after Jadeja’s dismissal, squandered the opportunity. He batted till the end 47.3rd over. Despite scoring at least 50 runs during this period, the team’s total was hovering around 270-280. There were chances of winning. But he got out after scoring only 18 runs. He missed the golden opportunity to become a hero. His selection is now being questioned.
4. Absence of 6th bowler:
There should have been a sixth bowler in the team. Only five bowlers played in the tournament and saw success. true But if there is a 6th bowler in the team, the match will get more turn. In the absence of Hardik Pandya, the bowling all-rounder should have been given the lead. However, the team management did not do anything about it.
5. Ashwin should have been given a chance:
Ashwin should have been given a chance. It was a big mistake to restrict an experienced spinner to the bench in 10 matches except for one. Especially against the Australian batters, they have been more dominant. For Aussie bowlers, lion dreams are never wrong. Had he been allowed in the team instead of Surya in the final, he would have done magic on a slower pitch.
