Cummins says he’s falling in love with ODI cricket again as Australia win the World Cup

Australia beat India by 240 runs to win the World Cup by six three wickets. Australia captain Pat Cummins said he had fallen in love with the one-day format again at this World Cup, describing the victory as “the pinnacle of international cricket”.

Cummins said he was nervous in the morning and seeing more than 100,000 fans wearing the blue jersey of the Indian team was an unforgettable experience. He also said the pitch was well bowled with a slow ball and no bounce.

Cummins praised Travis Head for his century for the tournament and said it was commendable that the selectors and coaches stood by him despite his injury. He also said that Virat Kohli’s triple-double satisfied him as he did not take another hundred.

The captain said that playing white-ball cricket in India helped Australia a lot and added that he was immensely proud of the team’s performances in the last two years, where they also won the T20 World Cup title and the World Test Championship title.

Australia beat India by 240 runs in the 50-over match. Captains Rohit Sharma (31 balls, 47 runs, 4 boundaries, 3 sixes), Virat Kohli (63 balls, 54 runs, 4 boundaries) and KL Rahul (107 balls, 66 runs, 1 four) played a great game on a tough pitch.

Mitchell Starc (3/55) was selected to bowl for Australia. Captains Pat Cummins (2/34) and Josh Hazlewood (2/60) also played well. Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell each had a triple bogey.

In the chase of 241 runs, India got off to a very good start, trailing Australia by 47/3. Great performances by Travis Head (120 balls, 137 runs, 15 fours and 4 sixes) and Marnus Labuschagne (110 balls, 58 runs, 4 fours) left India with nothing to show for their win by 6 wickets.
