India couldn’t score runs quickly despite captain Rohit Sharma gave them a blistering start. The fall of Rohit’s wicket started the host nation’s downfall. Shreyas Iyer was the next one to depart.
Virat Kohli and the next man in KL Rahul failed to hit boundaries and even the singles-doubles dried up.
The two couldn’t take on part-timers Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh.
Former India player Sunil Gavaskar questioned the tactics of Virat and Rahul.
“I said in during the match and I am saying it again after the proceedings. Why KL Rahul and Virat Kohli didn’t hit boundaries against Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh. They are not regular bowlers and Kohli and KL should have tried scoring runs against them,” he said.
Meanwhile, Australia won the final by 6 wickets to lift their sixth World Cup trophy.
