Travis Head, stationed at long-on, pulls off a sensational catch, leaving the crowd in stunned silence. The fielding brilliance of Head claims Rohit’s wicket at a crucial juncture. Rohit Sharma departs after an impactful innings of 47 runs from 31 deliveries, featuring four boundaries and three sixes.

The Indian team’s approach in the World Cup final is described as playing with a remarkable sense of freedom, adding an enviable dimension to their performance on the grand stage. Despite the setback with Rohit’s dismissal, India’s intent remains evident, keeping the pressure on Australia and maintaining an exciting tempo in this crucial encounter.

In the ongoing final, Pat Cummins introduces a variety of deliveries in an attempt to disrupt Rohit Sharma’s rhythm. However, Rohit manages to keep the scoreboard ticking with singles and leg byes. The Australian pace attack, led by Cummins, aims to capitalize on the early breakthrough by Starc.

As Cummins strives for control, Rohit and Virat Kohli display resilience, denying Starc any chance to settle into a rhythm. Rohit showcases his power with a six over long-off, swiftly followed by Kohli’s masterclass—a mistimed flick, a crisp punch, and a signature cover drive. The pressure swiftly shifts back onto Australia.

The eighth over sees Glenn Maxwell entering the attack, offering a spin option. Kohli takes charge, confidently executing a delightful cut shot for four. The Indian duo maintains a strong partnership, with Rohit contributing a quick single and Kohli flicking to deep mid-wicket. Cummins, proactive in his captaincy, brings Maxwell into the powerplay, deploying fielders strategically.

As Maxwell takes the ball, Kohli continues his fluent strokes, securing more runs with a flick to deep mid-wicket and a controlled shot to backward point. The partnership between Rohit and Gill in 2023 becomes the second-highest in a calendar year, emphasizing their consistency and impact on the team’s success. They trail only the legendary pairing of Tendulkar and Ganguly in 1998. The final promises a gripping battle between bat and ball, setting the stage for an enthralling contest between India and Australia.

In their ODIs encounters, Shubman Gill has faced Mitchell Starc four times, accumulating 38 runs from 45 balls. Notably, all three dismissals occurred within the first 15 overs of the innings, indicating a challenge for Gill in the early stages of the match.

Virat Kohli strides purposefully to the crease, taking over the responsibility after the departure of Shubman Gill. His current partner, Rohit Sharma, continues to exhibit his prowess with the bat, playing a pivotal role in keeping Australia on the defensive. As Kohli settles in, the battle between him and the Australian bowlers intensifies, with Hazlewood posing a notable challenge. The scoreboard reads 40-1 after 6 overs, and the atmosphere is charged with anticipation.

In the previous over, Mitchell Starc tried to unsettle Kohli, but the Indian captain responded with a boundary to deep backward point, showcasing his ability to control the game. However, Starc’s earlier delivery had Kohli in a spot of bother, as a mistimed lofted drive narrowly escaped the clutches of the mid-on fielder.

Reflecting on the ongoing contest, the statistics reveal the dominance of the Australian bowlers, especially Starc, against Gill in ODIs. Gill’s struggles are evident, having faced 45 balls and scoring only 38 runs, with three dismissals occurring within the first 15 overs.

As Hazlewood continues his spell, Kohli displays his class with a calculated push towards deep point, adding crucial runs to the Indian total. The battle unfolds ball by ball, and the exchange between Cummins and the Aussie camp suggests a strategic evaluation of their plans.

Rohit Sharma, standing at the other end, recently unleashed a powerful six off Starc, showcasing his ability to single-handedly control the match. However, the dismissal of Gill prompts speculation about the effectiveness of the team’s game plan and its impact on Rohit’s attacking style.

In the midst of this intense cricketing drama, Javed Parvez lauds Rohit Sharma’s class and unwavering intent in the World Cup. As the narrative unfolds, all eyes are on Kohli, a stalwart of the Indian batting lineup, to anchor the innings and steer the team toward a formidable total.

4.2 overs Shubman Gill’s attempt to execute his trademark short-arm jab pull shot off the front foot proves costly as the delivery from Starc falls short of expectations. Instead of dispatching it towards mid-wicket, Gill hits it straighter, only to find Zampa stationed at mid-on. The lack of pace and proximity to the body results in Gill dragging the ball to mid-on. Starc celebrates with a double-fist gesture, securing the crucial breakthrough. Shubman Gill departs, caught by Zampa off Starc after scoring 4 runs from 7 deliveries.


Australia won the toss and chose bowling first.
