Travis Head: The Hero Behind the Victory
Even after the Indian team stumbled to 240 on a slow pitch, their adoring supporters had instant cause for hope when the Aussies started batting to achieve the target of 241 runs. Initially, the team faced a rough competition from Rohit and his team, with three wickets falling during the initial overs. Then came the man Travis Head, the opener, who scored a splendid 137 runs. He anchored the chase with his century, followed by other batsmen who stood through their game as the Indian bowlers struggled to get wickets. Head displayed the skill and resilience that has always run through Australian cricket history. Very few people know that Head missed the first five games of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 because of a fractured hand. However, Cummins realised his value and brought him back to the team, a decision worth making for the much-awaited victory. In the end, Head’s hundred is what sank team India.
Steve Smith’s Mistake: Did it Prove Costly?
Steve Smith made a huge mistake during the game because he did not take a crucial review despite being not out during the Cricket World Cup 2023 final on November 19, 2023. It happened during the seventh over of the Australian innings when Jasprit Bumrah made a slow delivery. It crashed into Smith’s pad, after which the entire team appealed against the batters. The umpire also gave him out. Smith was interested in taking a review, but Travis Head advised him not to go for one. Later, the replays showed that the impact of Bumrah’s ball was outside the off-stump. It means the decision would have been reversed. Smith’s mistake would have cost the Australian team the cup. But, as luck would have it, the void left behind by him was filled by his colleagues.
