On the match front, India fell short in their batting performance, but the early brilliance of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami’s pace secured three wickets in the initial powerplay, placing Australia in a tough spot.
However, India’s spinners struggled against an unresponsive pitch and with dew aiding the ball’s skid, spin was negligible. Despite an intense start, the hosts couldn’t sustain the pressure, allowing Head and Labuschagne to settle in. Their bowling lacked consistency, permitting the Australian duo to dominate. In response, Australia’s bowlers impressively restricted India to under 250 runs.
Captain Pat Cummins spearheaded with three wickets, initially overcoming batting struggles. Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne’s partnership of 192 runs, an unexpected standout, sealed Australia’s victory, Head’s century leading the charge before Glenn Maxwell’s finishing blow.
