Sydney: Once again the Indian team’s dream of becoming the world champion in England was shattered. Australia beat the Indian team by 209 runs at the Oval and became the world champion in Tests for the first time. Along with this, they became the first team to win the World Championship in all formats of ODI 20-20 and Test i.e. international cricket. India scored 280 runs on the final day with 5 wickets to spare, but Virat Kohli and Jadeja fell victim in the same over and after that the Indian cricket team’s dream was shattered. The last time India was defeated by New Zealand was in England.
On the fourth day of the historic Test, the Indian team scored 164 runs for 3 wickets. Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli played again today. India needed 280 runs when the 5-day game started, while Australia set a huge target of 444 runs. With time in abundance on the final day and India with 7 wickets in hand, it was expected that former captain and former vice-captain duo Virat Kohli and Rahane would ooze some charisma, but it didn’t happen.
Rohit Sharma started well in the fourth innings but was dismissed for 43 runs. Before that, Shubman Gill was the victim of a controversial decision. Gill was dismissed for just 18 runs, while Pujara played a poor shot and was dismissed for 27 runs. In this way 3 wickets fell. On the fifth day, India’s first wicket fell to Virat Kohli. He was caught out on the score of 49 off Boland. Steve Smith dived in the air to take the catch at second slip. Ravindra Jadeja was also dismissed for zero runs in the same over. When Starc led the way after Boland, Ajinkya Rahane was caught out by wicketkeeper Alex Carey, India’s real hopes were also dashed. He got out after making 46 runs. After this, Shardul Thakur fell victim to Nathan Lyon without opening the account, while Umesh Yadav scored a run and was caught by Kerry off Starc. After this Srikar Bharat (23) and Mohammad Siraj dismissed Nathan Lyon and made Australia the world champion. India’s second innings ended in 234 runs.
