Australia were crowned World Test Champions (WTC) after winning with a 209-run margin over India on in the WTC Final at The Oval, London.
The Australians displayed dominating performance over the Men in Blue since day 1 of the series setting a huge target of 444. India went into the final day at 164 for three needing another 280 runs for victory.
However, Australian pacer Scott Boland took out Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja in the same over to crush India’s hopes of making it to the finish line. The team was bowled out in the morning session having managed to put up 234 runs on the board.
With the win Australia became the first team to win all ICC Men’s titles while India faced its second consecutive WTC Final loss after losing to New Zealand in 2021 in the inaugural edition. The Indian side has not managed to win a single ICC tournament title since 2013.
