The Indian team, which made an explosive start in the ICC World Cup 2023, did not lose a single match till the final. He entered the finals by winning all his 10 matches in the tournament. In such a situation, fans including veterans also felt that the Indian team would create history by winning the title, but it could not happen.

The final was played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday (19 November), in which the Indian team faced 5-time champion Australia. In this match, the Indian team riding on Vijayarath appeared to be a complete failure.

Along with batting and bowling, the team also flopped badly in fielding. After losing the toss, the Indian team scored 240 runs and was all out for the first time in the tournament. After this, the Australian team won the match and the title by losing 4 wickets. There were 5 big reasons in this match, which made Team India lag behind in the final.

Let us know about them…

Gill’s early dismissal

The biggest fact is that opener Shubman Gill could not bear the pressure of this final. The first blow to the Indian team at 30 runs was in the form of Gill. Gill was out after scoring only 4 runs in 7 balls. This was also a big blow for the team. Had Gill scored a few more runs, there could have been a big partnership with captain Rohit Sharma.

In the previous 10 matches, the good start of the opening pair has been a major reason for the victory of the Indian team. But this also became a weakness in this match. In such a situation, Gill’s early dismissal was a major reason due to which a big score could not be made.

Slow batting was also a big reason

After Gill, the second blow came in the form of Rohit Sharma on the score of 67. Then on the score of 81, the third and biggest blow came in the form of Shreyas Iyer. In such a situation, the Indian team started appearing in trouble. From here, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul together took charge of the innings but slowed down the run rate considerably.

Kohli and Rahul made a partnership of 67 runs in 109 balls for the fourth wicket. But a big thing during this time was that only two fours were hit between 11 and 40 overs.

These two fours came from the bats of KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. The big thing in this is that during this period, batsmen like Kohli, Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, and Suryakumar came to bat.

But everyone appeared to be under pressure. It was due to such slow batting that the Indian team could only score a small score of 240. In the match, Virat Kohli led the team by playing an innings of 54 runs in 63 balls.

Apart from him, KL Rahul played an inning of 66 runs in 107 balls. Surya scored 18 runs on 28 balls. Jadeja could score only 9 runs after playing 22 balls.

These 4 players could not bear the pressure of the final

Apart from Kohli, Rahul, and Rohit, no batsman could show his talent in the entire match. All of them could not withstand the pressure of the finals and appeared to have flopped miserably. After the dismissal of openers Gill and Rohit, Shreyas had to take responsibility at number 4, but he returned to the pavilion after scoring 4 runs.

After this, Ravindra Jadeja came to bat at number six, and after him, Suryakumar came to bat at number 7, but their condition was even worse. In this way, it became clear that these four batsmen could not bear the pressure of a big match like the World Cup final. If any one of these batsmen had stayed at the crease and scored at a slightly better run rate, then perhaps the outcome of the match could have been different.

Spinners’ flop show

When the Indian team gave Australia a target of 241 runs, the fans’ hopes were pinned on the bowlers. Here Mohammed Shami created a stir by taking 1 wicket and Jasprit Bumrah by taking 2 wickets. Australia had lost 3 wickets for 47 runs. From here the match seemed to be in India’s hands.

Rohit Sharma had used spinners Jadeja-Kuldeep Yadav as the third and fourth bowlers after Bumrah-Shami. But both these bowlers appeared to flop badly. Both of them completed their entire overs and did not take a single wicket.

Jadeja gave away 43 runs and Kuldeep gave away 56 runs. If both of them had taken even 1 wicket each, then the expectations of the result of the match being in favor of India could have been very high. In this way, the biggest reason can be understood as the flop of the spinners.

Even Siraj could not show tension

Captain Rohit Sharma kept fast bowler Mohammad Siraj as the 5th option. The captain gave the 17th over of the innings to Siraj. Then Australia had scored 87 runs for 3 wickets in 16 overs. If Siraj had achieved even one success here, the match could have changed, because at this time the match appeared to be in India’s control.

But there is also one thing in this that Rohit should not have brought Siraj after so long. When Shami and Bumrah created pressure by taking 3 wickets for 47 runs, Rohit could bowl Siraj with a spinner. However, whatever may be the case, Siraj could not take wickets at the time of need.

He took a wicket in the end when the match was out of hand. Siraj gave away 45 runs in 7 overs in the match and took one wicket. That means Siraj also proved to be quite expensive.
