World Cup 2023 Final
The Invasion of the West

4 in 40!

The Australian bowlers and fielders were absolutely superb in the final

4 Boundaries hit by India after the completion of the first powerplay. These are the fewest boundaries hit by any team between the 11th and 50th overs in a men's ODI since 2011. Those four boundaries came from KL Rahul (26.2), Suryakumar Yadav (38.6), Mohammed Shami (41.5) and Mohammed Siraj (49.2).

Four boundaries in 40 overs. I bet the crowd must have been shocked with that batting. As one commenter said: it's as quiet as a library! There simply wasn't enough pressure on Australia. Marnus played some shockingly bizarre and needless reverse sweeps in the semi-final and got out LBW but he was in pure cement mode today. Just block every good delivery and take zero risks. Perfectly sensible.

Oh, this is amusing:

Adam Zampa!?

That says a lot about Australia's batting strength. Today, the legendary Adam Zampa bats at number ten. Also, he needs to share the secret about his youthful looks.
