Australia won the toss and elected to field. Their decision turned out to be fruitful as they were able to bowl out India at a low score of 240 in exactly 50 overs, despite Virat Kohli and KL Rahul scoring half-centuries. Later on during their chase, Australia lost 3 wickets under 50 runs but Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship and took their team home with 7 overs and 6 wickets to spare.
Bollywood stars took to social media to express their disappointment. While acknowledging the team’s valiant effort in the rest of the tournament where they were unbeaten, they also offered words of encouragement and consolation to the players and fans alike.
