He added: “Truly a world-class team with outstanding performances from batsmen and bowlers alike. I am truly proud of the effort, determination, and sportsmanship displayed. Heads held high, always.”
India lost the toss and was asked to bat first. They managed to put up a score of 240 expecting the wicket to turn slower in the second innings. However, the Indian side, after sketching up brilliant performances throughout the tournament, gave into the pressure as it lost the momentum in the final. Australia won the match by 6 wickets.
