Australia beat India to win 6th World Cup In Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad: Australia have done it. Australia win their sixth ODI World Cup title. They have silenced 100,000-plus fans in Ahmedabad. In 2013, they have won a Test in India, they became World Test champions, then they retained the Ashes and now they’ve won the ODI World Cup.

Australia beat India by six wickets in Ahmedabad on Sunday to win a record-extending sixth ICC World Cup title. Travis Head scored 137 and shared a fourth-wicket stand of 192 with Marnus Labuschange (58 not out) as Australia chased down a modest target of 241 with seven overs to spare.

The 29-year-old Head’s century was only the seventh in a final in the 48-year-history of the World Cup, but third by an Australian following match-winning efforts of 149 by Adam Gilchrist in 2007 and 140 not out by Ricky Ponting in 2003.

Head’s innings, which followed his valuable 62 in a tense three-wicket semi-final win over South Africa, was all the more impressive as he was in danger of missing the tournament completely after fracturing his hand in South Africa in September.

It also meant he had scored hundreds in both a World Cup final and a World Test Championship final, with Head’s 163 in a 209-run thrashing of India at The Oval in June earning him man-of-the-match honours.
