India lost the wickets of Shubman Gill (4), Rohit Sharma (47), and Shreyas Iyer (4) in the ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2023 Final against Australia.
From the very first ball, the Australian team has displayed an exceptionally tight fielding unit, denying Indian batters the chance to score boundaries during the Powerplay in the Final of the ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Every player, from Travis Head to David Warner, has actively contributed to preventing boundaries, making impactful catches as well.
As the game slowed down following the dismissal of three Men in Blue – Shubman Gill (4), Rohit Sharma (47), and Shreyas Iyer (4) – fans took to social media to discuss the impressive fielding.
Among them was actor Ranganathan Madhavan, who took to Twitter with a thought-provoking question. He remarked, "Why does it feel like the Australians are fielding with 40 players. They seem to be everywhere."
Netizens also chipped in with their thoughts on the Australian fielding.
As of writing this article, 22 overs have been completed, and India has scored 121 runs with the loss of three wickets. Virat Kohli (42) and KL Rahul (22) face the challenging task of building a substantial total to secure India's victory in the ODI World Cup Trophy on home soil.
