Chasing a massive 353 run score, Australia were bowled out for 316 as India registered their 2nd successive victory in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. Also, Australia’s 10-match winning streak has been broken.

Following a century by Shikhar Dhawan, Buvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah claimed 3 wickets each as India registered a 36-run win over Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament at the Oval, on Sunday.

Even though David Warner rode on half-century for Australia, Alex Carey and Steve Smith crossed the 300-mark. Still, they fall for 36 runs short of what could be a record chase in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament at The Oval for Australia.

Shikhar Dhawan scored the top with 117 runs, while Captain Virat Kohli scored with 82 runs as India posted 352 runs for 5 wickets, a record ODI total in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against Australia.

Also, Rohit Sharma scored a half-century to build a strong foundation for India in its 14th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.  After Captain Virat Kohli won the toss and batted, Dhawan led the Indian charge.

However, opening partner Aaron Finch and David Warner looked to take a steady start to the chase. While they held their wickets through the first 13 overs, the run rate had already started to fall dangerously low.

In the second match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India beat Australia by 36 runs.

Reasons for India’s Win

An opening partnership of 127 between Shikhar Dhawan (117) and Rohit Sharma (57) gave a decisive start and wickets in hand to have a late bash. Rohit and Shikar’s century helped the likes of Kohli, Pandya in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match. Also, Dhoni scored 27 runs in just 14 balls.

Reasons for Australia’s Loss

A problem personified by David Warner’s meandering 56 off 84. Behind the eight balls for most of the chase, Australia could not muster the sort of hitting required to pull off the remarkable at the death.

Australia’s problem was that stability came at the cost of putting any pressure back on India. The run rate continued to slow until Warner eventually fall going for a lofty slog over midwicket, at which point even Smith began to find scoring difficult.

Man of the Match

Sensational Shikhar Dhawan, who scored 117 in the 14th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against Australia, has been named as the man of the match. Dhawan’s century helped India to set Australia a seismic 353 runs to win.
