Australia prevailed upon their 6th men's 50 World Cup title and spoiled India's party in Ahmedabad as Travis Head's superb century covered a heartless display in the final
Set a humble objective of 241 to win after a merciless bowling display, Australia were shaken from the beginning as David Warner was gotten by Virat Kohli off Mohammed Shami's bowling for only seven. A pressed, sectarian group were happy when Jaspreet Bumrah excused Mitchell Bog (15) and Steve Smith (four) with hardly a pause in between.

That ended up being as great as it got for the hosts, however, as Travis Head struck a nerveless 137 off 120, in an organization with Marnus Labuschagne (58 not out) that gradually drained the conviction from their rivals and the fans watching on.

When Head was gotten out, Australia required only two additional runs to win and Glenn Maxwell quickly hit them. India had won each of the 10 matches en route to the final but Australia, who began with two losses, have the prize.

Pat Cummins had placed India in to bat and Rohit Sharma started their innings off in great shape before he was very much gotten by Head for a 31-ball 47. The hosts lost both Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer for four runs each, but really began to hit trouble when Cummins struck, Virat Kohli inside-edging onto his stumps for 54, leaving India 148-4.

Josh Hazlewood took out the hazardous Ravindra Jadeja for only nine and after Starc excused Lokesh Rahul to end his dirty thump of 66, India were 203-6. The tail added another 37 runs before Kuldeep Yadav was run out off the final wad of the innings. An objective of 241 felt too low, and so it demonstrated as India's World Cup dream got away
