Giving out a strong indication of things to expect from this young team, India defeated Australia by a comprehensive 36 runs to clinch an important ICC World Cup clash at the Oval. Having decided to bat first, India got off a great start that featured Shikhar Dhawan’s 117 and skipper Virat Kohli’s sublime knock of 82. The Men in Blue ended amassed as many as 352/5.

In reply, Aaron Finch’s men could manage only 316 as Indian bowlers ran through the Australian batting line-up. The chase started with David Warner (56) and Aaron Finch playing on a cautious note against Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. However, the latter returned to the pavillion after a miscommunication between him and Warner led to Kedar Jadhav getting the better of the Australian captain, running him out in the process.

At 61/1, Warner and Steve Smith (69) were the defending champions’ best hopes. And they did indeed play well. But Kohli masterfully swapped his bowlers to great effect to see off the partnership break after 72 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3/50) and Jasprit Bumrah (3/61) were both phenomenal with the ball. The tailenders did raise hope for the Men in Yellow, but the mammoth target was unscalable in the end. The team collapsed at 316, handing India a comfortable win of 36 runs. As a result of the victory, the Men in Blue rose to the No.3 spot in the group table above their Australia.

However, fans went hysterical after India’s convincing victory over Australia. Here is how they reacted:
