Before the World Cup final, the Indian team had won all 10 matches. Even Australia was defeated in the league match, but unfortunately in the World Cup final match, the players of the Indian team kept getting out frequently and the entire team returned to the pavilion after scoring only 140 runs. For the first time in the World Cup, India lost all the wickets in a match. After this, when Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami took 3 quick wickets for Australia, there was hope that India would once again become the world champion, but the players of Australia also performed tremendously and in the result India had to face defeat. All the players of the Indian team were very sad due to this. However, even after this defeat, the fans praised the Indian cricketers a lot. Now India has to play 5 matches of T20 series against Australia from 23 November. Suryakumar Yadav has been made the captain of the Indian cricket team for this series.
