. In reality, regardless of the quantity of games played in a series, neither of them has ever accomplished such a result, either at home or away.
Another significant victory for team India.
Team India’s concentration on ODI series after winning the Asia Cup in 2023 has been extremely successful. They triumph against Australia, is the beat team in the world. India hosts the ODI series. The young players really nailed it, especially Shubhman Gill, Ishan Kishan, and Shardul Thakur.
Gill’s century in Indore against Australia made him the highest run-aggregator of ODI history, surpassing Hashim Amla’s and Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s all-time runs, and bringing him to number three in the list. The fifth century is still ten days away; otherwise the bat has made the Australians bowlers sweat. In second ODI match Indian captain KL Rahul was given the opportunity to bat after Steve Smith of Australia lost the toss. India set a massive goal of 400 runs in 50 overs while losing five wickets, despite the early dismissal of Ruturaj Gaikwad. K.L. Rahul performed admirably as India’s captain.
A 2-1 series victory for India against Australia was made possible by Glenn Maxwell’s four wickets
Australia’s performance was admirable; they got off to a good start with the bat and put India on the back foot. Rohit Sharma launched an early attack, but the bowling unit maintained composure and collected wickets. Although Maxwell’s comeback was impressive, both teams still need to improve their World Cup preparations. What a day it has been for the Australian off-spinner. Every time India appeared to be taking the lead in the match, he picked up a wicket. He was spinning the ball well and showed everyone a taste of what he is capable of when the playing surface provides a little assistance. While his bowling has been excellent today, his hitting has been a letdown.
India has a bright future in cricket
After winning Asia cup and ODI series team India focused on world Cup 2023. World Cup will be India’s 13th edition, a One Day International cricket tournament contested by men’s national teams. Ten teams will participate. The tournament will be India’s first solely hosted event, having been co-hosted in 1987, 1996, and 2011. On the other hand Indian women’s cricket team won a gold medal at Asian Games, defeating Sri Lanka by 19 runs in a low-scoring final. Star bowler Titas Sadhu, who is only four days away from her 19th birthday, contributed significantly to the team’s victory, securing a 19-run victory.
