„I felt like it was one of those days where everything was built for him (Kohli) to score another century as usual. That (wicket) was satisfying,” added Cummins.
Interestingly, a day before the match, Cummins had mentioned about silencing the crowd.
„Crowds can obviously be one-sided; but in sport, there’s nothing more satisfying than hearing a big crowd go silent, and that’s what we’re aiming for,” he had said ahead of the final.
Despite half-centuries from Kohli and Rahul (66), India could only manage 240 after Australian captain Cummins won the toss and asked to bat first.
Australia didn’t get the start they wanted and slumped to 47/3. But the opener Travis Head Marnes added 192 runs with Lapuzagne (58) and scored a match-winning hundred (137).
