It is observed that in past few years Australian cricket team’s performance getting down in bowling as well as bating. We can also see in ICC World Cup 2019 Australia did not present best performance so far. Australia has played three matches in this tournament yet and has won two but with bad wing rate i.e. +0.483. In the list of points table New Zealand is top of the list with 6 points. Once against Australia enter in Oval ground to play against India. But unfortunately Australian cricket team failed to perform best bowling, which becomes the cause of defeat.
India beat Australia on Sunday by 36 runs in the 14th fixture of the ICC World Cup. Chasing a huge target of 352 runs in 50 overs, Australia’s openers, David Warner and Aaron Finch started carefully. On individual score of 36, skipper Finch got himself run-out cheaply. After that Smith arrived and accelerated the energy but Warner kept things quite on the other end.
Although Warner made 56 runs, but he consumed 84 deliveries at below-par strike rate of 66.66. Maxwell and Carey tried to breathe some life into the game but it was too late. Australia managed 316 runs in reply to India’s 352. Earlier today in the 14th fixture of ICC World Cup 2019, India won the toss and chose to bat first on a batting-friendly pitch.
The openers proved decision of their skipper right as they went on to add 124 runs for the first wicket. Rohit Sharma departed after scoring a blistering half-century whereas his partner Shikhar Dhawan went on to score a brilliant century. Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed on 117. His innings included 16 boundaries.
After Shikhar’s leaving, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya faster the momentum as India finished on 352 runs in allotted 50 overs. VIrat made 82 runs whereas Pandya added 48 on just 27 balls. Australian bowler Stoinis sent two Indian batsmen to pavilion. Shikhar Dhawan was declared man of the match.
