Australia beats India y 7 wickets to lift 6th ICCODI World Cup.
Australia clinched their record-breaking sixth World Cup title in a thrilling final against India in Ahmedabad. Despite facing early setbacks with the loss of key players Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, and David Warner, Australia showcased champion-like resilience. Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne's remarkable 241-run partnership steadied the ship after the initial setbacks, securing Australia's victory.
India, led by Rohit Sharma, put up a commendable fight, with Virat Kohli and KL Rahul scoring half-centuries and Rohit Sharma contributing a quick 47 off 31 balls. However, they were ultimately bowled out for 240 in 50 overs, falling just short of the 241-run target. Australia's bowlers, especially Mitchell Starc, who took three crucial wickets, and Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, who scalped two each, played a pivotal role in restricting India below the 250-run mark.
Earlier in the match, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah's excellent bowling had given India hope by dismissing key Australian batsmen. Nevertheless, Australia's resilient batting performance, anchored by Head and Labuschagne, ultimately secured their historic World Cup win.
