Twitter reacts at India’s poor batting show in the IND vs AUS CWC 2023 final in Ahmedabad
India are bundled out for 240 runs against Australia in the final of CWC 2023 in Ahmedabad.
IND vs AUS final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bowl first. The start of the innings was pretty good, as Rohit Sharma batted as he has been doing in the tournament. Shubman Gill couldn’t cash in and got out cheaply for 4 off 7 balls. Mitchell Starc provided the first breakthrough.
His wicket brought Virat Kohli to the crease. He, along with the skipper, added 46 runs for the second wicket off 32 balls. Rohit Sharma looked pretty good for his 47 runs off 31 balls but got out in an attempt to hit another big shot off Glenn Maxwell. India were 76/2 in 9.4 overs when Rohit got out. Since then, India couldn’t get going.
Fans reacted to India’s batting failure in the first innings of the final
Shreyas Iyer, who scored consecutive hundreds in the last two matches, was gone early for just 4 runs. India lost the top three wickets for just 81 runs in 10.2 overs. Virat and KL Rahul put on a fighting partnership of 67 runs in 18.1 overs. There were a couple of moments when there was no boundary for over 15 overs, which pushed India behind. Adding to that, they kept losing wickets.
Virat, who is the leading run-scorer of the tournament, scored yet another half-century in the tournament. But he got out just after getting his fifty. He made 54 off 63 balls. That was the time when the floodgates opened. KL Rahul looked good for a big score but got out at the wrong time. He made 66 off 107 balls and struck only one boundary in it. Fans were also disappointed with India’s poor batting show.
Ravindra Jadeja got out for 9 off 22, which was followed by the dismissals of Mohammed Shami (6) and Jasprit Bumrah (1). The average first-innings score in Ahmedabad is 251, and India registered a below-par score. Suryakumar Yadav, who was in the team for some big finishes, got out for 18 off 28. All in all, it was a clinical performance from Australian bowlers. India were bundled out for 240 runs.
