Poor fielding and missed run out opportunities
Indian batsmen could score only 240 runs. In such a situation, tight fielding was expected from the Indian fielders. But Team India’s fielders disappointed on the big occasion. Indian fielders missed many chances to run out, for example, Team India led by Rohit Sharma had to face defeat.
Shami, Bumrah, Jadeja – all the bowlers proved to be fake coins.
Indian bowlers impressed a lot in this World Cup, but proved to be a flop in front of Australian batsmen in the title match. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav disappointed. Team India’s bowlers looked lackluster in the title match.
Batsmen disappointed… played careless shots
Team India’s batsmen, who came to bat after losing the toss, kept returning to the pavilion at regular intervals. Australian bowlers presented brilliant bowling performance, but Team India’s batsmen gave away their wickets by playing many careless shots. For Team India, only Virat Kohli and KL Rahul could touch the fifty-run mark, apart from this, the rest of the batsmen had a flop show.
Indian bowlers wasted extra runs
Indian bowlers gave away a lot of extra runs. Especially, in the initial overs, Mohammed Shami seemed to deviate from his line and length. Apart from this, the condition of other bowlers also remained the same. Team India’s bowlers kept bowling at poor lengths, for example, the Kangaroo batsmen kept scoring runs easily. Apart from this, as a wicketkeeper, KL Rahul made many misfields. Indian bowlers gave 18 extra runs. Which includes 7 byes and 11 wides.
Travis Head dashed all expectations
In response to India’s 240 runs, Australia’s three batsmen had returned to the pavilion for 48 runs, but Travis Head dashed Indian hopes. Travis Head returned to the pavilion after scoring 137 runs on 120 balls off the bowling of Mohammed Siraj, but by then Australia’s victory had been ensured. Actually, the hopes of Indian fans were raised after Australia lost 3 wickets, but Travis Head did not give any chance.
