Australia beat India by 209 runs in the final of the World Test Championship 2023. With this, the Indian team’s dream of winning the ICC trophy was further delayed. After this defeat, many people are seen criticizing the Indian team. Now the name of former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has also joined it.
The Indian team suffered a humiliating defeat in this match. Giving the reason for this defeat, Harbhajan said,
“The result of the Test match is available in two and a half to three days. How can you go to England and win the final? In India you don’t see your fast bowlers bowling in Tests. There your spinners come to bowl immediately. What do you expect then. You have to change this situation.”
The pitches in Test matches in India are mainly seen to support spin. Hence, the ball is seen turning in a big way on the first day itself.
Considering this match, the Indian team had won the toss and decided to bowl first. Travis Head and Steve Smith scored centuries for Australia. India were bowled out for 296 after Australia scored 467 in their first innings. The Australian team increased its lead by batting powerfully in the second innings as well. Chasing a challenge of 444 for victory, India were 164 for 3 after the fourth day’s play. On the final day, the Indian team needed 280 runs to win. However, as the Indian batting collapsed in one session, the team suffered a humiliating defeat by 209 runs.
