In a historic victory, Australia secured their sixth 50-overs World Cup title by defeating the formidable Indian team in the final at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday. The triumph was orchestrated by opener Travis Head’s stellar century, propelling Australia to a comfortable six-wicket win.
Opting to bat first, India managed to post a modest total of 240 all out in precisely 50 overs, with KL Rahul and Virat Kohli contributing battling half-centuries to the effort.
Despite facing a top-order challenge of their own, Australia found a savior in Travis Head, whose remarkable innings of 137 off 120 balls guided them to victory with seven overs to spare. The final, though not reaching extraordinary heights, showcased Head’s exceptional performance, steering Australia to yet another World Cup title.
