Australia were all out for 469 in the final match of the World Test Championship 2023 on Thursday (June 08). The Indian team had to struggle while chasing this challenge. When the second day’s play ended, the Indian team was 5 out 151 runs were made. Against the Indian batsmen, the strategy of the Australian bowlers proved to be quite right. Australia team has started preparing for this final match since last two months.
It was decided that the final match of the World Test Championship will be played between India and Australia in the month of March. The Indian players showed their skills in the IPL for two months after this. However, at the same time, Australia’s leading players withdrew from the IPL and focused on this final match.
Steve Smith and Marnus Labuchen, the leading batsmen of the Australian team, waited for the English county club to come to terms with this situation. Smith represented Sussex and Labuchen represented Glamorgan. On the other hand, Australia’s leading fast bowlers captain Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc have not participated in the IPL auction before. Scott Boland, on the other hand, benefited from not having an IPL contract and was able to practice longer. A training camp was organized for the Australian team in the months of April and May. In this, the weaknesses of the Indian batsmen were worked on.
All these bowlers saw the weakness of the Indian top order in this final match. Cummins walks Rohit on the inbound ball. So, Gill and Pujara failed to understand the direction of the ball. Virat was shown the way to the tent by Starc with an amazingly bouncy ball. Although this plan of the Australian players was successful for two days, the Indian team will have to find a way out.
