In this way, Australia will never be able to defeat Team India! (PC-AFP/PTI)
Glenn Maxwell created history at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. This Australian all-rounder performed a feat in the World Cup 2023 which no one could even think of. Glenn Maxwell scored a double century at number 6 against Afghanistan. On the basis of his unbeaten 201 runs, Australia miraculously won the lost match by three wickets. With this victory, Australia entered the semi-finals and has now become a big contender for the title. But let us tell you that after this victory of Australia, the chances of Team India becoming champion have increased further.
Hey don’t be surprised. This claim is not being made just like that. On the one hand, Australia achieved a miraculous victory in Wankhede, while on the other hand, its biggest flaw also became visible to everyone. Team India will definitely take advantage of this shortcoming and believe me, Rohit and Company will not give any chance to Australia like Afghanistan. Let us explain to you how Australia’s victory has further strengthened Team India’s claim to win the World Cup.
Australia’s open poll
Australia may have defeated Afghanistan but it had to face a crushing defeat on one front. This is the defeat of his top order and middle order. Australia’s first five batsmen were seen falling apart like a pack of cards against Afghanistan’s medium pacers. Afghanistan’s inexperienced fast bowlers, with their swing and seam, eliminated the first five batsmen of the Kangaroo team in 14.1 overs.
Naveen Ul Haq made Travis Head the victim of his swing. Something similar was done with Mitchell Marsh also. David Warner was bowled by Azmatullah on this swinger and Josh Inglis also became the victim of out swing.
What will happen in front of Indian pacers?
Now you think. If this is the fate of Australian batsmen in front of the fast bowlers of Afghanistan, then what will happen to them in front of the pace battery of Team India? The trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj is currently troubling every batsman. In this World Cup, these three have created their own fear through swing and seam. Shami has taken 16 wickets in 4 matches. Bumrah has taken 15 wickets in 8 matches. Siraj has taken 10 wickets. The big thing is that Indian spinners have also wreaked havoc. Jadeja has taken 14 wickets and Kuldeep Yadav has taken 12 wickets. It is clear that if Australia and Team India clash in the final of the World Cup 2023, then perhaps even Glenn Maxwell will not be able to save it. Even in the league match of this World Cup, Australia lost to Team India due to its poor batting. Now let’s see what will happen if there is a collision further?
