Australia delivered an impressive performance, securing a 33-run victory over England in their World Cup match in Ahmedabad on November 4th, effectively ending England’s tournament run.

In their first innings, Australia posted a challenging 286 runs on the scoreboard, while England managed 253 in response, leading to England’s exit from the World Cup. Adam Zampa earned the Player of the Match title for his remarkable all-round performance. Zampa not only took three wickets while conceding just 21 runs in his allotted overs but also played a crucial role with the bat. Joining the action when Australia was struggling at 241-7 in the 43.4th over, Zampa’s quick 29 runs off 19 balls was instrumental in pushing Australia’s total to a formidable score. He also showcased his fielding skills with a superb catch near backward square leg.

Additionally, Marnus Labuschagne was the top run-scorer for Australia, contributing a valuable 71 runs from 83 balls. Cameron Green narrowly missed a half-century, Steve Smith added 44 runs from 52 balls, and Marcus Stoinis made a notable contribution of 35 runs in 32 deliveries to bolster Australia’s innings.

Mitchell Starc delivered a crucial double blow to England’s chase, dismissing Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root early. Ben Stokes and Dawid Malan provided some stability with their half-centuries but were eventually dismissed. Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone fell cheaply, and Chris Woakes, despite showing late resilience, lacked support from his fellow batsmen.
