Australia fall under pressure losing 3 quick wickets

Australia have fallen under a bit of pressure losing three wickets in quick succession before the 50 mark against India in the final game of the World Cup in Ahmedabad.

The five-time world champions lost their three batters in a span of 31 runs while chasing a meager total of 241 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday.
In reply to 240, Australia were in a hurry as they picked 15 runs in the first over but lost their way in the second over, with David Warner offering his wicket.

The men in yellow then tried to recover from that but that did not last long. They lost two more wickets on 41 and 47 runs respectively.

Among the departed batters, only Mitchell Marsh (15) was able to cross the two-digit with runs.

Tarvis Head remains on the crease on 19 as Australia accumulated 60 runs after 10 overs.

Jasprit Bumrah took two wickets for India while Mohammad Shami got one.

Earlier, India were bowled out for a below-per-score of 240 runs on account of their dismal batting performance despite picking 80 runs in the first powerplay.

Being asked to bat, the men in blue started well with a healthy run rate adding 80 plus runs on the board in the mandatory powerplay but fell under pressure losing three wickets inside 81 runs.

Skipper Rohit Sharma started well but did not convert his innings big as he departed for 47 playing 31 balls. Falling of wickets in quick succession slowed the run rate down.

After that, India got a 67-run stand between Virat Kohli (54) and KL Rahul (66). Kohli went back to the pavilion after completing his individual fifty.

Rahul then started building partnerships with the batters on the other end. He also departed for 66 playing too many 107 balls.

No other batters could show their promise with the bat as India were forcibly stopped on 240.

Mitchell Starc took the highest three wickets for Australia while each of Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins bagged two.
