World Cup 2023 Final: Indian bowlers have been the best in the World Cup 2023. Team India’s pace trio (Shami-Bumrah-Siraj) has not only wreaked havoc on the opposition batsmen, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja have also done their job well in the spin department. Now these five will have to face a litmus test in the World Cup final.
Actually, there are many great legends in Australia’s batting line-up. Three out of the top-7 have had a batting average of 50+ against India. At the same time, one batsman holds the record of highest strike rate in India-Australia ODI history. In such a situation, the Indian bowlers will have the challenge of stopping this powerful Australian batting line-up. Here, the Indian bowlers will first have to try to send Trevid Head and Mitchell Marsh to the pavilion as soon as possible. This is because these are two batsmen who can single-handedly win the match for Australia.
Mitchell Marsh creates a storm when he walks
This all-rounder is at the fourth position in terms of scoring runs with the highest batting average in the ODI history of India and Australia. No batsman who took part in the World Cup 2023 final is anywhere near him in this matter. Marsh’s batting average against Team India is 65.42.
Mitchell Marsh has so far scored 458 runs in 10 innings of 11 ODI matches against Team India. During this period he has scored one century and three half-centuries. His strike rate against India is also excellent. He scores runs at a strike rate of 116. In terms of strike rate also, he ranks second in India-Australia ODI history.
Apart from all this, there is the current form of Mitchell Marsh. He has scored 426 runs in 9 matches in this World Cup. Here is also his explosive unbeaten inning of 177 runs, which he recently played against Bangladesh. Once Mitchell Marsh starts, it becomes impossible to stop him. This player is expert in hitting fours and sixes continuously. Even if wickets keep falling from one end or all the circumstances become odd, this batsman keeps batting aggressively without any pressure. This is the reason why this person also has the ability to win the match on his own. It will be necessary for the Indian team to send him to the pavilion as soon as possible.
Travis Head sets the team’s momentum from the beginning
The work that Rohit Sharma does for Team India is the same work that Travis Head does for Australia. This opening batsman attacks the opposition bowlers from the very first ball of the match. By adopting an explosive form right from the beginning, this batsman has the ability to discourage the bowler in front. If they remain standing on the pitch even for a few overs, they set such a strong base and momentum for their team that then the batsmen coming forward also pave the way for victory by playing fearlessly.
Although, Travis Head has not had any special record in ODIs against the Indian team till now, but this year he had snatched the title of World Test Championship from India. In the final, he batted in such a way that the Indian bowlers had no answer for him. Trevid has shown his strength in this World Cup also. In such a situation, if the Indian team wants to become champion, then they will have to show the way to the pavilion in the beginning itself.
IND vs AUS Final: Shami has sent 8 left handers to the pavilion in just 52 balls in the World Cup 2023, now the Australian opening pair will be the target.
