The hosts, being sent to bat first, put on a mediocre performance as the side were dismissed for 240 on the back of half-centuries by Virat Kohli, who was judged Player of the Tournament for his 765 runs, and wicketkeeper KL Rahul.

Travis Head scored a magnificent century to take Australia to World Cup glory. The opening batter played a brilliant knock of 137 as the side successfully chased a 241-run target in 43 overs.

A heated moment involving Virat Kohli and Marnus Labuschagne broke the social media.

During Australia’s chase of the 241-run target, Virat Kohli tried to intimidate Marnus Labuschagne by staring at him angrily. The latter did not give into pressure and followed him all of the way down the crease as other players returned to their positions.
