India's flop show in World Cup final was unexpected

The final cricket match of the world cup was played between Australia and India in Ahmedabad. Australia beat India in this. Actually the Indian team had won ten consecutive matches. Generally, the performance of India's batsmen on Sunday was not good. After Virat's dismissal, India's wickets went down. There was no big partnership either. Virat Kohli was dismissed when it looked like he was going to attack. After taking the first three wickets, the Indian bowlers failed to take wickets again. Between 11 and 40 overs only two fours could be hit. It is a mystery why the Indian team could not put up a score on a pitch where Australia scored well. Australia showed that disciplined batting is essential on a slower pitch. If the Indian team had another 40 to 50 runs, Australia would have lost it. The Indian team could not hit a single four in the ten overs of Cummins. Now when the Indian team has to play cricket in the Olympics, it is the hope of all Indians that such mistakes do not happen.
