World Cup 2023 IND vs AUS Final: The final match of the World Cup 2023 has been very bad for the Indian team so far. Batting first, Team India, captained by Rohit Sharma, lost five wickets at the score of 178 runs in 35.5 overs. The team lost the fifth wicket in the form of Ravindra Jadeja. After half of the Indian team returned to the pavilion, a question started arising in the minds of the fans whether the Indian team would be able to play the full 50 matches or not? Let us know.
In the 36th over, Ravindra Jadeja returned to the pavilion after scoring just 09 runs in 22 balls. Expressing confidence in Jadeja on behalf of the team management, he was sent to bat at number six before Suryakumar Yadav. However, Jadeja could not perform as per expectations. After 5 wickets fell, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav are present at the crease. This is the last pair of batsmen for India because after this, Mohammed Shami will come to bat, who knows how to bat but is not the main batsman.
Will Team India be able to play the full 50 overs?
After the fall of 5 wickets, whether Team India can play full 50 overs will depend on how far the partnership between Rahul and Surya goes. If both the batsmen stay till the end and are out a few overs before the end of the innings (2-3 overs before), then the team will be sure to play 50 overs. At the same time, if this last partnership of the batsmen i.e. the pair of Rahul and Surya breaks soon, then it will be a bit difficult for the team to play the full 50 overs.
Now Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj are yet to come for batting. These four players playing as bowlers in the team can handle the innings but you cannot expect any of them as a batsman. Now it will be interesting to see how much target Team India is able to set in how many overs.
