Amazing stuff. One team goes undefeated with the best net run rate there's been in a World Cup in years, has home-field advantage at the biggest stadium in the world... The other team struggled to make the final. Yet, in the end, Aussie gonna Aussie.
Goddamn it. Was hard to see how things unfolded right in front of my eyes. A super strong Indian team that looked undefeatable, a team that dominated other teams including Australia and made them look small and won 10 consecutive matches did not deliver when it mattered the most.
The Australian captain Pat Cummins said yesterday that there's nothing more satisfying than silencing a huge crowd and he and his guys did exactly that. They put 130k Indians in the stadium on silent mode.
