Twitter reactions on India’s win vs Australia: Twitter gave the impression of celebrating a clinical Indian victory vs Australia at The Oval.
During the 14th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and Australia at The Oval, India defeated Australia by 36 runs to register their second victory in the tournament.
Chasing a 353-run target, the Australian innings never really received the kind of momentum it required to chase the highest-ever total in a World Cup match. Captain Aaron Finch scoring 36 (35) with the help of three fours and a six at the top gave positive signs before getting run-out by Kedar Jadhav in the 14th over.
Australia promoted Steven Smith, sending him to bat at No. 3. While both Smith (69) and opening batsman David Warner (56) scored individual half-centuries, none of these innings was in sync with the required run rate.
It was as a result of these innings that things went out of hand for Australia’s middle-order. Coming in to bat at No. 7 in the 41st over, wicket-keeper Alex Carey scored his second ODI half-century in a losing cause. Remaining unbeaten till the end, Carey scored 55* (35) with the help of five fours and a six.
Among the Indian bowlers, the new-ball bowling pair of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (10-0-50-3) and Jasprit Bumrah (10-1-61-3) brought back Australia’s progress throughout the innings and eventually restricted them to 316 in 50 overs. Other than this duo, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal picked up a couple of wickets.
After India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat, India posted 352/5 in 50 overs on the back of opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan’s 17th ODI century. Other than Dhawan, his opening partner and vice-captain Rohit Sharma (57) and captain Virat Kohli (82) scored individual half-centuries.

The bowlers did the job in the first, and the batsmen in the second. India’s World Cup campaign has purred along so far.

Dhawan is the first player in over 27 years to hit a WC century against Australia in winning cause.
Also highest score ever.

The 86 off 44 balls between Pandya, Dhoni and Rahul was probably the difference eventually. And I thought Bhuvneshwar was excellent. I was a sceptic, to be honest, but delighted for him.

The last time Australia failed to chase target in a World Cup match, Virat Kohli was 10 years old and three players – Mujeeb, Shaheen, Hasnain – in this WC were not even born. #Leeds1999
