Australian opener Travis Head was the man of the final as he scored an amazing century to knock. The 29-year-old said, “Rohit Sharma is probably the unluckiest man in the world”. The Indian skipper had scored 47 runs before Travis Head took an amazing catch to end Rohit Sharma’s blistering innings.
The Australian also said “Again fielding is something that I worked hard on. I couldn’t imagine getting a hundred, couldn’t probably imagine holding onto that one. Was great to hold on to that catch”
At one stage India was 80/2 at the end of the 10th over. For the next 40 overs the Indian team could only score 160 runs for the loss of 8 wickets with Virat Kohli and KL Rahul scoring centuries.
The Indian team had the Australian team in trouble at 47/3 with David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, and Steve Smith being dismissed. Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head then added 192 runs for the 4th wicket to put the Aussies on the cusp of a win and 6th World Cup title.
