Australia bags their Sixth World Cup Title: India loses:- In a remarkable display of unwavering determination, Australia has once again emerged as the world champions, securing their sixth title. Led by Pat Cummins, the team proved their prowess by outshining the undefeated Indian side led by Rohit Sharma in Ahmedabad on Sunday. Despite India's strong position in the tournament, Australia justified their record as the most successful World Cup team. The highly respected Indian batting lineup fell short, resulting in a modest target of 241 runs for Australia. While Virat Kohli and KL Rahul managed to score half-centuries, Rohit Sharma's explosive knock of 47 off 31 balls was not enough to build a formidable total. Australia chased down the target in just 43 overs, with Travis Head leading the charge by scoring an impressive 137 runs off 120 balls.
Recognized as the Series' Most Valuable Player, Virat Kohli's outstanding performance of 765 runs sets a new World Cup record. Achieving this remarkable feat with an average of 95.62 and a strike rate of 90.31, Kohli hit three centuries and six fifties along the way.
Head's outstanding performance of scoring 137 runs off 120 balls earned him the prestigious Match award. Although Australia faced a challenging situation at 47/3, Head's aggressive approach not only sparked a comeback, but also paved the way for an eventual comfortable victory. Australia's journey in the tournament started with a defeat against India, but they ended it on a positive note by securing an equally convincing win in the final. After their loss to India, Australia faced another setback against South Africa, losing by a significant margin of 134 runs. However, this defeat turned out to be their last in this edition of the tournament. The Indian fans were left devastated by the loss in the final, and many players were visibly emotional after the match.
